Set shortly after the Civil War in rural Ohio, Morrison's story revolves around Sethe, a runaway slave who had sent her children away to their grandmother in Ohio, their freedom paid for by their father. When her "owners" come to recapture Sethe, she tries to murder the children, succeeding with only one, Beloved. That action will haunt her for the rest of her life and will affect all around her.
