Publisher's Summary

May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida, even L: all women obsessed by Bill Cosey. More than the wealthy owner of the famous Cosey Hotel and Resort, he shapes their yearnings for father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend, yearnings that dominate the lives of these women long after his death. Yet while he is both the void in, and the center of, their stories, he himself is driven by secret forces: a troubled past and a spellbinding woman named Celestial. This audacious vision of the nature of love, its appetite, its sublime possession, its dread, is rich in characters and striking scenes, and in its profound understanding of how alive the past can be.
Love is a major addition to the canon of one of the world's literary masters.

Critic Reviews

"A dense, dark star of a novel...with Morrison writing at the top of her game." (Newsweek)
"Haunting. In lyrical flashbacks, Morrison slowly, teasingly reveals the glories and horrors of the past. Morrison has crafted a gorgeous, stately novel." (Publisher's Weekly)

Wonderful

Love Toni Morrison, especially her narration. Now when I read her other equally wonderful books I literally hear her voice!

Ms Morrison never disappoints!

I am biased. I love everything Toni Morrison has written. And this was a great story.
