Beloved by Toni Morrison

About the book

Terrible, unspeakable things happened to Sethe at Sweet Home, the farm where she lived as a slave for so many years until she escaped to Ohio. Her new life is full of hope but eighteen years later she is still not free. Sethe’s new home is not only haunted by the memories of her past but also by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.

Remarkably well written. Thought provoking and challenging read. Could be used as a study book as different views can be discussed.

    Most appreciated the narrative and style although found the subject very distressing. Often confusing.

  2. Review by Morning Tide WI
    Only one person in the reading group liked this book. It was considered hard to reas, muddled and members did not finish it.
