Sourced for another bookcrosser as part of the Southern Cross Exchange on BookObsessed. Hope you enjoy this one!

From amazon.co.uk...

'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. 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'

Thankfully a short book because I really couldn't get into this or particularly care what was happening. Will go back into the 1001 VBB next round.

Spotted on another Bookcrosser’s wishlist so on its way to her by second class post. Sorry for hanging on to it for so long.

Thanks for the surprise RABCK, including a letter and four great cards (I love the Tiger Who Came To Tea).

I found the book quite hard to read as the dialogue is all written in the vernacular. I had to say it out loud in my head to understand it. As a fast reader I found this quite frustrating. I liked Janie and really felt for her through her struggles.
