A heartfelt and moving story about one woman's personal revolution as she joins the Civil Rights Movement - with a new introduction from Tayari Jones, the Women's Prize-winning author of AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE

'A lean book that goes down like clear water. Remarkable' New Yorker
'One of the most gifted writers in her country' Isabel Allende

Set in the American South in the 1960s it follows Meridian Hill, a courageous young woman who dedicates herself heart and soul to her civil rights work, touching the lives of those around her even as her own health begins to deteriorate. Hers is a lonely battle, but it is one she will not abandon, whatever the costs. This is classic Alice Walker, beautifully written, intense and passionate.
