Purple Hibiscus


The limits of fifteen-year-old Kambili’s world are defined by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family estate and the dictates of her fanatically religious father. When Nigeria is shaken by a military coup, Kambili’s father sends her to live with her aunt. There, she discovers life and love – and a terrible, bruising secret deep within her family.
