Sue Monk Kidd is a former Christian author who began to question her role as a woman in her culture, her family, and her church. *Dissident Daughter* is a wonderfully touching memoir of her search for the sacred feminine, and a way to retain her heartfelt connections with Christianity while embracing that sacred feminine.
I absolutely loved this book! It gave me "permission" to look beyond what is preached in the church to find a connection to the sacred for myself, without requiring me to give up everything I have known and believed my entire life as a Christian.

This book was quite eye-opening, especially in terms of a father/daughter relationship. Not a light read, but recommend this from the author of The Secret Life of Bees.

I did not finish reading this book. I found for me that I couldn't get into it because I had a hard time relating to a lot of what Kidd said. I think it mostly related to being in different stages of life.
