Ms. Cellie, The Color Purple by Alice Walker

With so many adversaries in her life, Cellie remained devoted to God and the promise of a better life. Being raped by her stepfather, having her children taken from her, being married off to a cruel man and being separated from her only sister, were just some of the treacherous feats of Cellie’s life. Cellie’s life was clouded with despair, but there were slivers of hope and in the end we all rejoiced for her.
