Great historical fiction about the slave trade in the US and Canada. The book is called 'Someone knows my Name' in the US, despite the 'Book of Negroes' being a true historical document in Canada.

Sarum one of the best books I have ever read...starts with primitive people living in caves and ends up in modern times. This takes place in England and centers around 5-6 families moving through history...a cathedral is built and the details, history and story lines keep you enthralled. Fabulous! I love this author.
