This book is a bit confusing, but if you stick with it, it will all make sense. It's an interesting read, for sure. It's short, but a good look at early slavery and the life of a young girl caught up in a world she has no control over. Morrison uses several characters to tell the story, in their own way and time. The prose is beautiful, haunting, and painful.
