Description - Possessing The Secret Of Joy by Alice Walker

When Alice Walker finished writing "The Colour Purple" she realised that she needed to tell the story of Tashi, a minor character, who had 'left Africa but had taken her wound with her to America'.This is Tashi's story, told in her words and the voices of the people who loved her. This extraordinarily courageous and compelling novel explores the tragic consequences of Tashi's decision to go through the female initiation ceremony.
