Sula Peace, Sula by Toni Morrison

Oh, Sula! The words that come to mind for Sula are: uncompromising, aggressive, fearless and evil. We are lead to hate Sula because of her disregard for all social conventions and her need to cause trouble wherever she went. When she has an affair with her only friend’s husband she becomes even more out-cast by the community, which ironically becomes closer in light of her evil act. Though Sula was the epitome of evil doings, she forced others to look upon their own lives and see where common living may well be a hindrance to real living.
