The controversial book didn't sell well, with Morrison stating in a afterword that the reception to the work was parallel to how her main character was treated by the world: "dismissed, trivialized, misread. However, a traumatic accident changes everything. Because of her family background, she has long hoped to find a good match. Toni brings the element of guilt and afterthought seen from violet and joe where Violet is trying to correct her embarrassing action while Joe is trying to mend their relationship. Love, cheating, guilt, and hate are some themes depicting a society that is still trying to find an identity.

    She finally dares to venture outside in order to ask the community for help, and she is given food and a job. Toni Morrison was born and raised in the city of Loraine in northeast Ohio. Unbeknownst to Sethe, Halle is watching the event from a loft above her, where he lies frozen with horror. She, however, has not overcome the memories of her days in slavery way long after her escape. The couple married in and welcomed their first child, Harold, in Beloved Beloved introduces her series, the Toni Morrison Trilogy.

    Although Sethe lives there as a free woman, she is held prisoner by memories of the trauma of her life as a slave. Sethe spends twenty-eight wonderful days in Cincinnati, where Baby Suggs serves as an unofficial preacher to the black community. Toni Morrison, Toni MorrisonAmerican author Toni Morrison,
