This book has a lot of sadness in it, then again Morrison’s books are never cheerful
In the 1680s the slave trade in the Americas is still in its infancy . This book has a lot of sadness in it, then again Morrison’s books are never cheerful. What I love about her chronicles is that she gives voices and feelings to people who are often ignored. Morrison always seems to adds a new layer of emotion to her characters.

Toni Morrison is the author of eleven novels, from The Bluest Eye (1970) to God Help the Child (2015). Morrison achieves this by setting A Mercy in 1680s America, when slavery was a color-blind, equal-opportunity state of misery, not yet the rigid, peculiar institution it would become. Morrison doesn’t write traditional novels so much as create a hypnotic state of poetic intoxication.

Toni Morrison gives us another layered vision of the complicated character of America and how we survive. Morrison has perhaps delivered her greatest book yet, a book so pared down to its essence that each staccato harmony passes by in an instant but resonates long after. -Susanna Bullock, St. Louis ul. Morrison's prose is richly lyrical, compressed, intense. Pulsing life imparted to her characters and the wholly convincing world they inhabit. She drops us into a place of darkness and uncertainty, slowly unfolding character and story, ever aware of a parallel spirit world and a chorus of voices following behind.
Toni Morrison's new book, "A Mercy," tackles the very origins of America's blood-soaked racial history. Set in Virginia during the last decade of the 17th century, the story follows four women bound to farmer Jacob Vaark: his wife, Rebekka, a woman "unleavened" by the death of her children; the Native American Lina, who lost her village to smallpox and finds refuge on the farm; Sorrow, a wild girl with a broken mind; and Florens, a young slave.
