Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God. – Alice Walker

A book with a color in the title (37th) – The Color Purple by Alice Walker

The Color Purple

Taking place mostly in rural Georgia, the story focuses on the life of women of color in the southern United States in the 1930s, addressing numerous issues including their exceedingly low position in American social culture.

The novel has been the frequent target of censors and appears on the American Library Association list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 2000-2009 at number seventeen because of the sometimes explicit content, particularly in terms of violence.

– Goodreads

Written through letters, this novel tell the sad story of ‘colored’ woman in America.

I am not American but the characters are relatable.

I hope to write a review of this book, soon.
