Description

'One of the most haunting books you could ever wish to read...it is stunning - moving, exciting, and wonderful' Lenny HenrySet in the deep American south between the wars, this is the classic tale of Celie, a young poor black girl. Raped repeatedly by her father, she loses two children and then is married off to a man who treats her no better than a slave.

Gradually Celie discovers the support of women that enables her to leave the past behind and begin a new life.
