Friday Books: God Help the Child

I read a real, for adults, book! It was a good one, too... God Help the Child by Toni Morrison. A girl, grown into a woman, with a difficult childhood that continues to impact her life and her decisions. A boy, grown into a man, with trauma in his young life; the trauma continues to impact his life and his decisions. These two characters' lives intertwine, and their early traumas color their decisions in adulthood and how they work out their relationship. Very interesting book that shows why history matters. Amazing, awesome book.

A winter book nook -- would you like to try it??
