Near-fine first edition - page edges have yellowed. In a good unclipped dust jacket, with wear along the edges and two small tears where the covers meet the spine. Some surface markings to both jacket covers.
Terrible, unspeakable things happened to Sethe at Sweet Home, the farm where she lived as a slave for so many years until she escaped to Ohio. Her new life is full of hope but eighteen years later she is still not free. Sethe's new home is not only haunted by the memories of her past but also by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.
