I enjoyed, The Mermaid Chair, however it did not leave a lasting impression as 'The Secret Life of Bees' did. In the 'The Secret Life of Bees' I felt as if I was part of the book- witnessing the events first hand. The event were based on historical issues and I was captivated. I had hoped for the same feelings of captivation with 'The Mermaid Chair' but was disappointed. In fact I am not sure that I would have finished 'The Mermaid Chair' if I had not enjoyed the author's previous works so much.
