This recently rediscovered and critically acclaimed 1937 novel tells the story of Janie Crawford, a long-legged, articulate, and fiercely independent African-American woman of the 1930s. Janie's quest for identity includes three marriages and a return to her roots. Despite her struggles, Janie never defines herself by regret, fear, or unrealistic dreams, and refuses to be anything but her own person. Read by actress Ruby Dee, this outstanding recording has been widely praised for its flawless adaptation of Hurston's classic. Download and start listening now!

    " Some of the images in this book were absolutely striking...caused me to pause in wonder of how Hurston strung those words together. "

    " read this book many many years ago, and it was required reading for a class i took last year. I forgot how good this book was. A very compelling story of a woman's life in the south. "

    " Although some critics argue this is not Hurston's strongest work; the plot of this story is one that resonates deep in the heart of a hopeless romantic. Hurston take you through the journey of a strong, fearless female protagonist, Janie. The story shows strength, determination, and faith. Hurston develops a well rounded character from descriptions all the way down to dialogue. This book will have you hooked from the first page all the way to the tear jerking ending. "
