New York Times BestsellerStaring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby.

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. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement."e;You can't go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison.Beloved,Song of Solomon,The Bluest Eye,Sula,everything else they're transcendent, all of them. You'll be glad you read them."e;--Barack Obama
