When a man who was also in captivity on the same plantation as Sethe arrives at the farm, he seems at first to help the women regain a sense of normalcy in their lives. The ghost of the dead baby disappears, and he brings Sethe and Denver out into the world to enjoy a carnival. Upon their return, however, a mysterious young woman appears at the farm who wreaks havoc on Sethe's fragile reality.
Constantly shifting between the past and the present, this emotionally devastating story shows the nightmare for individuals trying to come to terms with unimaginable emotional pain—and offers up a compelling portrait of the enduring reverberations of slavery on African American families.
The winner of many major awards for literature—from the Pulitzer to the Nobel Prize—this book is considered one of the greatest works of American fiction.
