Description


This novel of turn-of-the-century white “Florida Crackers” marks a daring departure for Zora Neale Hurston, the author famous for her complex accounts of Black culture and heritage.

Full of insights into the nature of love, attraction, faith, and loyalty, Seraph on the Suwanee is the compelling story of two people at once deeply in love and deeply at odds. With the same passion and understanding that have made Their Eyes Were Watching God a classic, Zora Neale Hurston explores the evolution of a marriage full of love but very little communication and the desires of a young woman in search of herself and her place in the world.
