Janie endures two stifling marriages before meeting the man of her dreams, who offers not diamonds, but a packet of flowering seeds ...'For me, THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD is one of the very greatest American novels of the 20th century. It is so lyrical it should be sentimental; it is so passionate it should be overwrought, but it is instead a rigorous, convincing and dazzling piece of prose, as emotionally satisfying as it is impressive. There is no novel I love more' Zadie Smith 'One of the greatest writers of our time' Toni Morrison

Strong women unite
it is great to see a portrait of another strong woman, and how she overcame adversity to find true love.

This book follows the life of independent Janie Crawford as she searches for a community where she can find love, acceptance, and fulfillment in a culture that is suppressive to both women and African-Americans. Zora Neale Hurston is an underappreciated author; this work shines in both its writing and its portrayal of a strong heroine and a cast of equally dynamic other characters.
