Beloved by Toni Morrison is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1988. The book follows the life of Sethe, who grew up on a slave plantation in Kentucky and escaped, only to be discovered by her former owners. Under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1860, slave owners were allowed to track down their slaves across state borders, and Sethe, fearing for the life of her children, was forced to kill her unnamed daughter. The book then follows Sethe’s life years later, where she is haunted by the ghost of her dead daughter. The novel delves into the issues family relationships and the psychological impact of slavery in a beautifully artistic way.
