About this title:
Synopsis:
An estimated 20 million newly-enslaved Africans caught their last glimpse of Africa as they passed through Gore Island between the mid-1500s and the mid-1800s en route to the New World. In this novel, author Richard Gore relates how the native women of this island-the Signars-managed to survive and live well within the political, cultural and economic niche in which they were thrust as a result of their mixed lineage. With suspence and mystery, Goree tells a compelling story of survival and in so doing, unveils a nuance of African history that explores and helps identify the original empowerment of the Black woman.

About the Author:
Richard Gore, a resident of Detroit, Michigan, began his research for the novel twenty-five years ago by tracing his family roots back to the island that bore his name. Upon discovering the historical significance of this island and its inhabitants, Gore began weaving his research into this very powerful story.
