Beloved is set after the American Civil War and is inspired by the story of an African American slave named Margaret Garner. The main character, Sethe, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. Her new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.
