God Help the Child

Cover: 'God Help the Child'

Staff Review: "God Help the Child" by Toni Morrison


Deeply thought provoking, Morrison weaves a tale that takes us deep into the understanding that childhood shapes who we are. Bride, a beautiful, successful, vibrant young woman has it all, but is left seeking more when she cannot escape the scars of her past. Booker, the man she loves is also caught up with his own demons. Their secrets will tear them apart and force them to come to terms with the trauma they've faced and the choices they've made. This dark, emotional novel leaves us eerily aware of the darkest parts of childhood and the haunting effects on our broken lives.
