Meet the members from the Sula discussion.
L'Tanya "The Peace women, Eva, Hannah and Sula, demonstrate what freedom means. In ways that seem unconventional, evil and downright primal, these characters define, structure, and create a sense of self-identity and community on their own terms."
Lori "Sometimes reading a book is like finding the right words for what you always wanted to say. ... I have thought a lot over the years about why there are such tensions between mothers and daughters, and I think Sula gives insight into the nature of close relationships in general."
Evelyn "Sula also helped me to understand some of the decisions and sacrifices that mothers make; they are only being the best type of mother they can be with the information they have at the time."
Gerri "It was upon the second reading that I felt better about the message behind Morrison's words. While still feeling a certain sadness, I realized that Morrison was showing the value of friendships and mothers, and the importance of working hard to ensure those relationships."
