How a young independent thinking African-American woman in Florida finally realizes happiness after a life filled with sorrow. The heavy Southern dialect confused me for awhile and made the story slow going. I guess it did add "local color." An early feminist work. 閱讀評論全文

An old school classic - this was an amazing book club read. A heart wrenching story of love, discovery, loss, and triumph. The story following Janie as she weaves herself through her many ups and ... 閱讀評論全文
