Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

In exchange for a bad debt, an Anglo-Dutch trader takes on Florens, a slave girl, who feels abandoned by her slave mother and who searches for love--first from an older servant woman, and then from a handsome free blacksmith--in a novel set in late seventeenth-century America, by a Nobel Prize-winning author. A best-selling New York Times Book of the Year.


Review:

"Morrison's unflinching narrative is all the more powerful for its relative brevity; it takes hold of the reader and doesn't let go until the wrenching final-page crescendo." (starred review)

Publishers Weekly, 09/15/2008

Review:

"[Toni Morrison's] astonishing new novel, A MERCY, has both X-ray eyes and telepathic powers, not to mention tree rings, ice caps, pottery clocks, carbon clouds, a long memory, and a short fuse."

John Leonard, Harper's, 11/01/2008

National BestsellerOne of The New York Times 10 Best Books of the Year In the 1680s the slave trade in the Americas is still in its infancy. Jacob Vaark is an Anglo-Dutch trader and adventurer, with a small holding in the harsh North. Despite his distaste for dealing in flesh, he takes a small slave girl in part payment for a bad debt from a plantation owner in Catholic Maryland. This is Florens, who can read and write and might be useful on his farm. Rejected by her mother, Florens looks for love, first from Lina, an older servant woman at her new master s house, and later from the handsome blacksmith, an African, never enslaved, who comes riding into their lives.A Mercy reveals what lies beneath the surface of slavery. But at its heart, like Beloved, it is the ambivalent, disturbing story of a mother and a daughter-a mother who casts off her daughter in order to save her, and a daughter who may never exorcise that abandonment.
