she was a younger girl Celie had been sexually abused by her step-father whom she believed was her biological father. She gave birth
to two children which were stolen by her Alphonso(step-father) and sold to two missionaries Corrine and Samuel. Celie was then given
to marry to Mr._____ whom continues with the beatings such as his son attempted with his wife Sophia (but Sophia was physically
stronger and didn't allow it). Mr.____ falls in love with Shug as does Celie, who gets Shug to live with them as "protection" from
Mr._____'s abuse. Shug is a free soul who enjoys the company of younger men so on numerous accounts breaks both of their hearts.

which eventually reunites them. In the end, Alphonso dies, Celie is reunited with her sister and children, and Shug finds a new partner.
