zora_hurstonTheir Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

When Janie, at sixteen, is caught kissing shiftless Johnny Taylor, her grandmother swiftly marries her off to an old man with sixty acres. 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.

There is no novel I love more.’ — Zadie Smith, author of NW
