Synopsis:
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.

Review:
[Banner] Now a Tony Award-Winning Broadway Musical
 

The Color Purple is the story of two sisters—one a missionary to Africa and the other a child wife living in the South—who remain loyal to one another across time, distance, and silence. Beautifully imagined and deeply compassionate, this classic of American literature is rich with passion, pain, inspiration, and an indomitable love of life.


"Intense emotional impact . . . Indelibly affecting . . . Alice Walker is a lavishly gifted writer."— The New York Times Book Review

"Places Walker in the company of Faulkner."— The Nation

"Superb . . . A work to stand beside literature of any time and place."— San Francisco Chronicle

" The Color Purple is an American novel of permanent importance."— Newsweek

"Marvelous characters . . . A story of revelation . . . One of the great books of our time."-- Essence
