Home by Toni Morrison

This is a very powerful little book. If you can, try to devote some time to reading it in one sitting, because it takes hold of you and speaks a true message clearly. It's a message about being who you are, in spite of or because of the struggles that move you, and a message about grief, and how it can be a stagnating hiding place, or a transformative acknowledgment of pain.
