Beloved- A suspenseful novel follow Sethe, who was freed from slavery but never really escapes her memories. It's an unflinching look into the horrors of slavery, but even more than that, it will fill you with hope.
The best ghost story you'll ever read. I say rich and layered a lot in these reviews, this book is beyond that. It's richness in reverse, imagery in hyperactivity, story from beginning to end and back to middle. Love it love it love. I think of bright white light when reminded of reading it.
