Helpful Score: 1


This was my first Sue Monk Kidd book (I know, Secret Life of Bees is still on my TBR list!). I thoroghly enjoyed the characters, the story and the pace of the book. It really showed a woman's mid-life struggle to find herself by discovering that some of the "truths" she had been told as a child to protect her, actually were worse than if she had been told the real truth in the first place. The lies festered not only in her, but in her Mother and others, and were brought to the surface painfully. I gave it 4 stars.
