Publisher Description

The latest novel from Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison.

An angry and self-loathing veteran of the Korean War, Frank Money finds himself back in racist America after enduring trauma on the front lines that left him with more than just physical scars. His home--and himself in it--may no longer be as he remembers it, but Frank is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from, which he's hated all his life. As Frank revisits the memories from childhood and the war that leave him questioning his sense of self, he discovers a profound courage he thought he could never possess again. A deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood--and his home.

Hmmm......what to say.....

Well this was def. not a fair price....priced too high for sooo little. This will be worth the price @ $4.99; really!! not even 200 pages. I have learned from this book that from now on look at PRICE and the #of PAGES in the ebook before buying (11.99), i feel robbed. Other than that this short story was nicely written, i loved the characters, but there was def. room for more details. Lily's story, what actually happened to Cee, and so on and so.

Good read

Good story. Great writing.

A powerful appetizer

Length does not dictate the quality of a story but I wanted more: I wanted to witness the healing of Cee and Frank; I wanted to watch Lily take possession of her own home. The writing is lyrical and brutal, a mirror of the conflicts and dreams that create the story of this unique family. Some parts will make you squirm, others will bring a wide smile to your face. The first- and third-person narrator format was confusing at first but now I realize I (the reader) was part of Frank's return to reality . . . and a new life. "Home" is a tasty starter but now I'm ready for the main course. Maybe Toni will cook up a sequel that puts Lotus into the capable hands of Miss Ethel and her hard-working crew of church women.
