Purple Hibiscus By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
It is the story of a family in Nigeria in the grips of a father who is a religious fanatic. But that grip loosens as the children leave to spend time with their Aunt Ifeoma. It is also the story of a country breaking down in the midst of military coup.
It is a very emotional story, there is love, fear, admiration, respect, so much that not only was the story speaking to me but I started speaking back.
