Sophie Ward's six best books

Sophie Ward is an English actress perhaps best known in Britain for her long-running roles in Heartbeat and Holby City.

One of her six favorite books, as told to the Daily Express:
by Alice Walker

This was a revelation. Set in the southern United States it’s about a black woman’s development during the Thirties. I remember feeling devastated, having to put the book down every now and again because I was sobbing. It’s written in the first person in dialect and diary form but the voice is so strong.
Read about the other books on Ward's list.
