I just finished THE MERMAID CHAIR, and am now going to go out and get her very well known THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES and Kidd's other books, THE DANCE OF THE DISSIDENT DAUGHTER and WHEN THE HEART WAITS. More praise might just be superfluous, yes?

THE MERMAID CHAIR depicts the story of a risky period in any woman's life. She's been married to the same good man for 20 years or so, and her only child just left for college. Abruptly her mother (who lives on an isolated island) appears to be going dangerously insane. Her only sibling refuses to help. It's solely up to her to deal with the situation since she already lost her father to a boating accident many years earlier--or was that really true?
