However, each home is different because it is a personal space for the individual or family to feel at “home”. The feeling of being "at home" can't be bought, however, because it comes from an intimate relationship between the individuals and their most personal place. Like other love affairs, this feeling of a home shapes the individual’s just as they shape it. They can lavish the home not only with money but also with their time and creativity onto their homes, and in return, their homes give comfort, pleasure and sanctuary to them. Toni Morrison explores what a home is in her book called Sula. Morrison is outstanding writer that has gain recognition from many of her books. However, one of her was a controversy, where some called her book a “Blackfaced Holocaust novel” (Kascha, 5). Even some book critic like Sara Blackburn, described Morrison’s Sula as “ too vital and rich to be confined within such limits. Her extravagantly beautiful, doomed characters are locked in a world where hope for the future is a foreign commodity, yet they are enormously, achingly alive. And this book about them—and about how their beauty is drained back and frozen—is a howl of love and rage, playful and funny as well as hard and bitter” (Blackburn).In Sula, Morrison’s usage of her characters’ homes reflects their particular experiences, to discover their identities, as well to explain their actions. This story is about a strong bond between two different women named Sula and Nel. Their personality seemed opposite of each other. These two protagonists grew up together, however, they will learn the true meaning of
what it is to be strong and what it is to be good and bad. They both were raised in a different environment. For Sula, her family was very dysfunctional, while Nel was raised
