Their Eyes Were Watching God(2005):
Sassy Janie Starks looks unlike to get anywhere in pre-Great War Easton, Florida, but lands the best colored catch, lively shopkeeper Joe Starks, who even becomes town mayor. However her refusal to oblige his expectations of decency turn love into bitterness. After his death, she prefers to enjoy ‘freedom’ again, with cocky outsider ‘Tea Cake’ as playmate, and not just at chess. They even face the risks of seasonal labor.
Eatonville is the first and still remains the oldest existing incorporated black town in America. Located six miles north of Orlando. Childhood home of American folklorist, anthropologist, and author Zora Neale Hurston “Their Eyes Were Watching God’.

I think the whole idea of “watching god” was that she found peace even at the worst times by looking up to him knowing that he has a great deal planned and shes watching god at work.. questioning him, waiting for what is to happen next.. after every time she did something new happened.. Thats what I think anyways..
