Royal Purple 

Celie's song of hope

Alice Walker's novel The Color Purple is the point of origin for the chick-lit movement. Main character Celie endures horrible abuse at the hands of her father and her cold-hearted husband, Mister; she has children taken away from her; then she finds love with Shug, Mister's mistress, and discovers she has a flair for making pants. And despite all the suffering, she realizes she can also love herself. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and an inspiration to Oprah, The Color Purple has been transformed into a successful musical that garnered eleven Tony nominations.
