From the Back Cover:

[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.

"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
