A stunning debut novel featuring a richly woven story of a Nova Scotia town settled by former slaves that is centered on a family bound together and torn apart by blood, history, faith, and fate.

An extraordinary feat of raw emotional intensity, Africaville chronicles three generations of one family rooted in a historic Nova Scotia town established by former slaves. In this bold, searing, and timeless work of fiction, Jeffrey Colvin explores identity, passing, cross-racial relationships, and the meaning of home to tell the larger story of the black experience during the twentieth century. Vibrant and compelling, imbued with colorful detail, this extraordinary novel is a landmark work from a ferociously talented writer.
