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.
"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)

First Book I Didn't Finish
There are several others I'd consider
Not sure because I didn't finish it
Toni should probably stick to writing because I thought her narration was poorly done. I have over 60 books and she didn't bring the characters to life. I just could not get into the book.
