This novel captures the world of The Bottom, a black community in Ohio. This is not a "happy" novel, but one that is tragic, beautiful, and magical, because of Morrison's writing. Sula Peace, who is considered an evil force and "witch" for her actions, is one of many memorable characters. Her relationship with Nel and the differences between them is a core element of this intricate work.
