Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A demanding but enthralling novel in which the agony, violence, and sexual abuse of slavery--and the struggle to escape--are dramatized through the experiences of intensely individualized characters."
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in post-Civil War Ohio, this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel concerns a runaway slave and her daughter, whose lives are disrupted by a former slave, a spirit and a woman named Beloved. According to PW, this ``brilliantly conceived story . . . should not be missed.'' (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
