Their Eyes Were Watching God Chapter 9
Janie realizes that she hates her grandmother because she never allowed Janie to go out in search of a far horizon (her dreams). She always made Janie settle on things, and because of this, Janie is unfulfilled.
Now that Joe is dead, Janie notices that many men come around seeking her attention. They all want to marry her because she has money. Six months pass and she is still not married. She still manages the store, but doesn't like it. Men continue to come around, but Janie pays no attention to them and she doesn't care what anyone else thinks. She enjoys the freedom she has.
