This weekend I read a Beloved review. The author of the critique said that they thought the book was extremely well written. However, they did not approve of the story that Toni Morrison based her book off of. The review said that Morrison based her story off of a slave woman named Margaret Garner who in 1856 was accused of murdering her child rather than have her being captured and enslaved. The critic said she couldn't approve of the inspiration of Morrison's novel no matter the motive. I'm not sure if this is true, but I found the review very interesting.
