    The setting she shared with Tea Cake in Florida resonates so much with what we imagine chasing our dreams would feel like. In the last chapter, she ends her story with Phoeby stating that " ... Dey gointuh make 'miration 'cause mah love didn't work lak they love, if dey ever had any" meaning that no love compare to hers - she lived life by her own conditions, and is grateful for Tea Cake taking her to her life's horizon. She was able to live a fulfilling life, free from the judgement of others. The people in the town could gossip all they want to, but they possibly never experieced liberation like hers.

    If they ever had any" implying that no affection contrast with hers - she lived by her very own conditions, and is appreciative for Tea Cake taking her to her life's frame of reference. She could carry on with a satisfying life, free from the judgment of others. The general population in the town could talk all they need to, however they conceivably never experieced freedom like hers.
