Beloved

by Morrison, Toni

Beloved (1987) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Toni Morrison. The novel is based on the life and legal case of the slave Margaret Garner.

The slavery of the American south is bared in this transfixing tale.  Sethe was born a slave, and escaped to Ohio, but the past follows where the authorities do not.  She is haunted by the memories of the beautiful place where she experienced so many terrible things, and haunted by the ghost of her baby daughter - her Beloved.
