The book is set in Florida in the early 20th century. It's focused on a teenage girl named Janie Crawfords. Throughout the book she claims she expects more form life but realizes she has to find out for herself what she should expect.
I really liked this book because it dealt with gender roles. I though it was important that it talked about woman wanting to have more rights and do more things they want to that only men are allowed to do.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading books that deal with finding your own identity. Also if you like reading about women being free and doing what they want and the value of women, I suggest this book.
