The Lost Ones
By Amina Koroma
The Lost Ones presents the story of two young women, stolen from home, who find themselves amongst the many who are crossing the middle passage during the transatlantic slave trade. It explores their lives under captivity, individual crises of faith and identity and the relationship they build as a means of safety, camaraderie and a sense of home that they were uprooted from.
