It is 1873, slavery has been abolished, and while Sethe  now lives a safe and seemingly peaceful life, she remains haunted by a dark act she committed 20 years ago. Sethe killed her baby daughter to save her from a life in slavery, and this troubled spirit has possessed Sethe ever since. Beloved has been frequently challenged for its sexuality, racial content and passages about ghosts. If you are a collector of banned books, this work by one of America's greatest writers is one you want on you library shelf.
