Toni Morrison’s new book Home can be read in a matter of hours.  The book is short, but very powerful.  I have always loved Morrison’s work and this novel about an African-American veteran returning from the Korean War reinforced my admiration of her masterful literary skill.

The main character, Frank Money, returns home from the war with deep emotional scars.  As hard as he tries to bury the past, the violent memories invade his daily existence.  When he receives a note telling him his younger sister is dying, he travels through a racist nation to the small town in Georgia where he grew up.

This is a very powerful story of redemption and salvation.  I just love the way Morrison tells it.  I hope you will as well.
