What I am Reading….

Posted on: 13 July, 06

The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd

This book was good, but as not good as The Secret Life of Bees. The story is set on an island off the coast of South Carolina. I wanted to know more about the island and the culture. There are hints, but they only left me hungry for more. When a woman intentionally chops off her finger, her daughter returns to the island to care for her. The daughter had abandoned the island many years in search of the life she thought she wanted. Returning to the islands stirs up old emotions, which causes her to question what she really wants from life. In the end, I was happy with the ending. There was closure and it was realistic….not a storybook happy ending.
