“An extraordinary novel.” –The New York Times

Toni Morrison’s magnificent Pulitzer Prize-winning novel brings the unimaginable experience of slavery into our comprehension.  Set in rural Ohio several years after the Civil War, it is the story of Sethe, an escaped slave, who has risked her life in order to wrench herself from  living death; who has lost a husband and buried a child; who has borne the unthinkable and not gone mad.  Sethe, who now lives in a small house on the edge of town with her daughter, Denver, her mother-in-law, Baby Suggs, and a disturbing, mesmerizing apparition who calls herself Beloved.

Profoundly affecting, this is one of Toni Morrison’s greatest novels – a dazzling and spellbinding achievement.
