    Hard to put down

    A story about a young beautiful woman who fell for man with many flaws. A mother who hated herself and took it out on her child. Unlike Toni Morrison other books this one actully is set in more current times in of the civil war.

    God Help The Child

    Beautifully woven story . Girlhood trauma manifesting in womanhood keeps one making rescissions from that scared place . The same in boyhood as we learned through the character Booker . It’s not a woe it’s me story of colorism but more-so how colorism in parenting affects self esteem , intimacy , and ones decisions . Toni Morrison is a great teacher . I stepped back to analyze myself and family and that emptiness we can feel when we’re taught to behave in order to survive instead of living to thrive and to feel the magic of life . It’s also a story within this story of true relationship and the struggle of opening up and being with someone when you’ve had the great live making and even laughs with someone. What happens when we want to run but at the same time know we need to stay for our happiness and growth ? I could go on forever . Racism is only a construct . Sociology majors and degree holder , and even sociologist with no certificates but self proclaimed ones should read this . Toni analyzes culture so well through her fiction . It’s a benefit for everyone .
