    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.

    Story

    Just an incredible book, beautiful and complicated. A bit of a warning that the story is dense and it's easy to get lost, especially without a physical book. But it's worth it, if you're patient, it'll be clear later whose story is happening and how the threads come together. Just an exceptional, wonderful book and it's even better read by the author.

    When Blinking Jack Stokes met Ruby Pitt Woodrow, she was twenty and he was forty. She was a carefully raised daughter of Carolina gentry and he was a skinny tenant farmer who had never owned anything in his life. She was newly widowed after a disastrous marriage to a brutal drifter. He had never asked a woman to do more than help him hitch a mule. They didn't fall in love so much as they simply found each other and held on for dear life.

    Story

    Really well suited to audiobook, the story is narrated in the personal voices of the two characters which makes it a really enjoyable listen.
