Morrison never ceases to amaze me! This book explores many different themes, including the richness of the African-American heritage; the importance of discovering family history; coming of age; the thin line between love and hate; incest; the "money-is-the-root-of-all evil" principle; domestic violence; resentfulness among siblings; and racially-motivated violence. A great read! Not her best, but still a rare jewel and must-read.
