Sue Monk Kidd, Ann Kidd Taylor

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Biography, Autobiography: general, Prose: non-fiction

An engrossing, touching and uplifting travel memoir from the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestselling author and her daughter.

Sue Monk Kidd and her daughter Ann chronicle their travels together at a time when each had reached an important turning point in her life. What emerged was a quest for Ann and Sue to redefine themselves and also rediscover one other. Against the backdrop of the sacred sites of Greece, Turkey and France, Sue grapples with the problem of how to expand her vision of swarming bees into the novel that she feels compelled to write, whilst newly-graduated Ann ponders the classic question of what to do with her life.
