In Toni Morrison’s God Help the Child, we are provided a very well written manual of how not to raise and helpful tips on how to bring up a child in this world. In the novel, many examples of these helpful hints or tips for parenting are almost etched into our brains as we explore the life of Lula Ann Bridewell or Bride and her adventures. Almost every character in the story shows examples of parenting even though they might not be the biological parents of that child.

God Help the Child book. This novel is a Everybody bow down, Toni Morrison still reigns. In this short novel, we meet Bride. A young woman who, as a child, testified in a court case which led to the imprisonment of an alleged child abuser. Twenty years later, Bride tries to make peace with the woman whom she sent to prison. I'll stop there and allow you to read the rest of the novel. Morrison imbues this novel with her renowned mastery of prose which allows the reader to sweep through this novel in only a sitting or two. This novel is a well-wound timepiece with every cog (characters, narrative, emotion) working.

Spare and unsparing, God Help the Child-the first novel by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment-weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult. At the center: a young woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life, but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love. And finally, Bride’s mother herself, Sweetness, who takes a lifetime to come to understand that what you do to children matters. And they might never forget. A fierce and provocative novel that adds a new dimension to the matchless oeuvre of Toni Morrison. About God Help the Child

In her latest novel, Toni Morrison asks a difficult question: what do we do with the sins of the child when that child’s sins were engendered by a force against which she was powerless? Lula Ann Bridewell, who calls herself Bride, is blue-black beautiful, the kind of woman who turns heads wherever she goes. She is tall, elegant, and dresses only in white, the better to reflect her beauty. But Bride did not always know her beauty or how to wear it. As a child, her mother Sweetness punished Bride for her dark skin, which ended her marriage

Child abuse cuts a jagged scar through Toni Morrison’s God Help the Child, a modern-­day fairy tale with shades of the Brothers Grimm. At the heart of the novel is a woman who calls herself Bride. Young, beautiful, with deep blue-black skin and a career in the cosmetics industry, she was rejected as a child by her light-skinned mother, Sweetness, who’s been poisoned by that strain of color and class anxiety still present in black communities. It didn’t take more than an hour after they pulled her out from between my legs to realize something was wrong, Sweetness says.

Praise for Toni Morrison’s GOD HELP THE CHILD Utterly compelling. Morrison remains an incredibly powerful writer who commands attention. Roxane Gay, The Guardian God Save the Child is superb, its story gliding along the tracks of Morrison’s utterly assured prose. Charles Finch, USA Today (critic's pick) Morrison is such a masterful writer that even those who don’t prefer stream of conscious novels may find them sucked into these minds, turning page after page of this short novel until they’ve finished the book in one sitting. This novel is worth reading on the strength of Morrison’s narrative talents alone. But it also makes an inviting introduction to her entire body of work. God Help the Child’ finds this American legend still breaking new ground and, as always, delivering an uncompromising and memorable novel. Jack Pender, Waterloo Region Record A wrenching tale.

Rain, the mysterious white child with whom she crosses paths.

Toni Morrison is no stranger to historical fiction. Her last novel, Home, whisked readers into the shoes of a struggling Korean War veteran. A Mercy, the one before that, pictured life through the eyes of teenage bondswomen on a 17th-century Anglo-Dutch farm. And who could forget Beloved, her wrenching tale of a mother’s radical attempt to save her child from slavery in the mid-1800s? But when the octogenarian author sat down to compose her 11th and latest novel, God Help the Child, she faced a new challenge.
