Sales price $14.00

Fifteen year old Kambili’s wealthy Catholic father, although generous and well respected in the community, is repressive at home. Her life is regulated by schedules: prayer, sleep, study and more prayer. She is haunted by fear of his violence. When Nigeria suffers a military coup, Kambili and her brother are sent away to their aunt. Her house is full of laughter. Here Kambili discovers a different, glowing life beyond the confines of her father’s authority. The visit will lift the silence from her world and, in time, reveal a terrible, bruising secret at the heart of her family. Purple Hibiscus is a compelling novel which captures both a country and an adolescence at a time of tremendous change.
