    Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but 18 years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe's new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.

    John R Williford says: "Author-read Books"
    "Mesmerizing"
    Overall

    I loved hearing Toni Morrison read "Beloved". It was very difficult to read the book because it is so intense, but when Toni Morrison started reading the audio book, I was hynotized. Hearing the author read gave the book the proper cadence.
    This is a great book for discussion, but be warned, it isn't light reading.
