Strong women unite

by brizzo on Oct 29, 2009

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

by Maggy on Oct 21, 2007

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.


Beautiful language
