Book Review: The Mermaid Chair



The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd

I read this second novel from Kidd several years ago, but I recently selected it as a book discussion title, and thought I better reread it.

Once again, I adored this book. I love the setting, the romance, and the struggle Jessie goes through to come to terms with her life, her love, and her family. Kidd's writing is luminous, and I found myself rereading sentences to try and capture the beauty of them.

A wonderful follow up to The Secret Life of Bees, though it is a very different type of novel. I'm looking forward to discussing this one - highly recommended!
