Beloved - Toni Morrison

THE CLASSIC NOVEL FROM THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING TONI MORRISON

It is the mid-1800s and as slavery looks to be coming to an end, Sethe is haunted by the violent trauma it wrought on her former enslaved life at Sweet Home, Kentucky. Her dead baby daughter, whose tombstone bears the single word, Beloved, returns as a spectre to punish her mother, but also to elicit her love. Told with heart-stopping clarity, melding horror and beauty, Beloved is Toni Morrison’s enduring masterpiece.

Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction
