All my life I had to fight. I had to fight my daddy. I had to fight my brothers. I had to fight my cousins and my uncles. A girl child ain’t safe in a family of men. But I never thought I’d have to fight in my own house. She let out her breath. I loves Harpo, she say. God knows I do. But I’ll kill him dead before I let him beat me.

-Alice Walker | The Color Purple

This book by Alice Walker touched me so deeply that I will never forget it.  It is probably the only book I have ever read in one sitting.  It is a tough read but I will never regret picking it up and my copy of this book will never leave my home.  It is one of those special books that you want to treasure on the highest level of your bookshelf.

This is the story of Celie, one of the strongest protagonists you will ever meet in a book.  She is a young black girl born into poverty and segregation in the deep American South.  While it deals with very serious and disturbing themes, it is ultimately a tale about strength, survival and hope.  I would love to hear your thoughts on this amazing book if you have read it? ♥ ♥ ♥

So that brings me to the end of my 3 Days 3 Quotes challenge. I would like to say a big thanks to Lucy at Occupation:(m)other for tagging me.  I really enjoyed it and I would like to tag the following lovely bloggers :

    Thanks for the tag, Nicola! ❤ I've been a bit behind tags lately, but I'll get to yours — soon!
    I've heard wonderful things about The Color Purple but haven't picked it up yet. It sounds like a very important and worthwhile read though… one day I'll pick it up! 🙂
