Above All, There Is Hope And Redemption

Home , by Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning author Toni Morrison, is a story of surviva. We follow veteran Frank Money in his efforts to adjust to civilian life as he returns home following the Korean War. He wrestles with his demons inside and the forces of society that threaten to diminish his safety and security. Frank is a man looking for his identity in an unforgiving world filled with prejudice and misconceptions. Everything changes as he is compelled to help his sister Cee survive her own desperate ordeal. In order to help her heal, they must return to the small, racist town in Georgia they called "home".

Toni Morrison is known for her deep,complex prose, but in this novel she uses her beautiful words sparingly to create a major impact. Above all, there is hope and redemption, and the belief that people can rise to their challenges and emerge triumphant. Inspire yourself this holiday season with a story by a true American classic, Toni Morrison.
