It’s another Saturday time for another great Saga
My pick for this week is:
(Click any picture of title for more info.)
“The Color Purple“
This is a classic southern tale of friendship/family and hardship. I love story about sisterhood, I myself have 4, so I can relate. Alice Walker has captured a depth of character in her female protagonist, that is empowering. She is an amazing writer, and has written a very important piece of literature. “The Color Purple” won the Pulitzer Prize in 1983 (the year I was born.)
Rated: 4.4 on amazon.com
Book Bean: Sweet Tea
This tea is good hot too but is traditionally consumed iced.
In a large glass measuring cup, place 6 tea bags and 1/8 tsp baking soda. Pour 2 cups boiling water over the tea bags. Cover and steep for 15 minutes. Take out the tea bags and do not squeeze them. Pour the tea mixture into a 2-quart pitcher; add 1.5-2 cups sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add in 6 cups cold water. Let cool; chill in the refrigerator and serve over ice.
A fantastic book on so many levels, one that sticks with you forever. Alice Walker is a great writer.
I read this a long time ago – this is one of those books you can read again and again.
4 sisters? My, my. I can imagine your reunions. 🙂
