At its center is fourteen-year-old Celie who is forced by her overbearing father to marry a cruel farmer called “Mister” and separated from all that she loves. The Color Purple gives an exhilarating new spirit to this Pulitzer Prize-winning story. This stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie as she journeys from childhood through joy to anguish and then hope as she discovers the power of love and life.
