really liked it
bookshelves: 1001, 2012, kindle, library, african-american
Read from January 19 to 22, 2012

I wish that I had read The Color Purple first, even though it is not a sequel. It was very informative about female genital circumcision and the kind of emotional toll it wrecks on the lives of the women who endure it. Rather upsetting really. But Alice Walker does a good job of it.
