Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate, and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister," a brutal man who terrorizes her. Celie eventually learns that her abusive husband has been keeping her sister's letters from her and the rage she feels, combined with an example of love and independence provided by her close friend Shug, pushes her finally toward an awakening of her creative and loving self.

Book Description Harcourt. 1 Paperback(s), 2003. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award) Alice Walker's masterpiece depicts the struggle of black women of the mid-20th century against both white racism and also black patriarchal sexism. Only 14, Celie has been raped by her stepfather, her children given away, and goes to be the wife of a man she only calls "Mister" in order to save her sister Nettie from his attentions. In her letters to God, her only confessor, Celie describes her degradation at the hands of her husband and the abuses visited on other women in her family. But as she matures, and discovers herself through her love of the flamboyant singer Shug, she reclaims her dignity and self-possession. 288. Bookseller Inventory # 60779
