Two girls who grow up to become women...two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret.

I have read this book countless times since it was first published in the 80’s and I still cherish every opportunity I have to read it again. In my more recents readings of this book particularly when listening to the audible recording. I’ll choose a single character during my reading to navigate me through their perspective and relationship of the novel. Being able to listen to Toni Morrison rich tone as she interweaves the complexity of their lives. Makes each of my return visits a very interesting and enjoyable experience that I’m eager to explore.
