From Goodreads:

The new novel from Nobel laureate Toni Morrison.
Spare and unsparing, God Help the Child is a searing tale about the way childhood trauma shapes and misshapes the life of the adult. At the center: a woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life; but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love until she told a lie that ruined the life of an innocent woman, a lie whose reverberations refuse to diminish . . . Booker, the man Bride loves and loses, whose core of anger was born in the wake of the childhood murder of his beloved brother . . . Rain, the mysterious white child, who finds in Bride the only person she can talk to about the abuse she’s suffered at the hands of her prostitute mother . . . and Sweetness, Bride’s mother, who takes a lifetime to understand that “what you do to children matters. And they might never forget.”

    1. I wish I had done that…I tried and failed to get through it with everything else I had going on, but I think it’s best to move it to my travel book during a soon-coming trip. I’ll let you know my final thoughts! Blessings, Kalisha

    1. Thank you Mihran! In the interest of time I had to borrow those words from Goodreads, so I can try to finish her novel overnight…I’m loving it so far! Peace and Blessings, Kalisha
