A Mercy is a historical fiction novel written by Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, published in 2008. Set in the late 17th century, the story explores the complex and intertwined lives of various characters living in the early American colonies. The novel delves into themes such as slavery, race, religion, and the struggle for survival in a harsh and unforgiving world.
The narrative centers around Florens, a young African slave girl who is taken in by Jacob Vaark, a Dutch farmer and trader. Through the perspectives of multiple characters, including Florens, Jacob, and his wife Rebekka, the novel examines the different forms of subjugation and oppression experienced by the characters as they navigate their lives in a rapidly changing world.
A Mercy has been praised for its lyrical prose, richly drawn characters, and powerful exploration of the complex forces that shaped early America. The novel offers a compelling and thought-provoking look at the roots of American history and the indelible impact of slavery on its development.
"To be given dominion over another is a hard thing; to wrest dominion over another is a wrong thing; to give dominion of yourself to another is a wicked thing."
