A Mercy

A Mercy A Mercy by Toni Morrison

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
The images and descriptions were vintage Morrison: evocative, poetic. The characters, while of various types, were nonetheless sympathetic and interesting. I wish the book had been longer: more story, longer time period. The ending was sad: but the lives of the types of people inhabiting this book are sad and the endings rarely satisfactory. Still, I would have liked an ending with more of a future.
