Another fine novel by Sue Monk Kidd. Jessie Sullivan is more or less forced home to attend to her mother, who may have been going crazy. Back at home on her South Carolina island, she confronts her marriage, her loss of self, her past, and her art. When her understanding of her father's death crumbles, and with it her mother's grip on sanity, Jessie puts her own life back together.

I can't possibly do the book justice. It's definitely another "must-read" by Kidd.
