The Color Purple

All her life, Celie has known only hardship and cruelty. Her abusive father married her off at the age of 14 to a callous man who separated her from her only true friend in the world, her sister Nettie. But with every reason to despair, Celie clings to hope, and the promise that love will lead her to healing and joy.
