Toni Morrison

African American solider Frank Money returns from the Korean War physically and emotionally damaged. His alcoholism and uncontrollable rage land him in a mental hospital, where he receives a letter from a friend of his gravely ill younger sister, Cee: “Come fast. She’ll be dead if you tarry.” Frank knows he must escape, travel to Atlanta, and bring his sister back to their hometown of Lotus, Georgia, a place he’s always despised. A poetic, emotional journey of self discovery from award-winning novelist Toni Morrison (A Mercy, 2008).
