    I'm not quite finished with it yet, but it is a great read so far. She really gives a great visualization of the setting and the characters.

  • A good story Jun 15, 2007

    Sue Monk Kidd has written another beautiful story. Though not as innocent and playful as bees, it will keep you interested throughout the whole novel. Lifetime even made a movie out of this! It is an unusual story with missing fingers and passionate monks, something that shouldn't be missed as a lovely summer read!

  • Chick Book Apr 27, 2007
    by BKinnecom

    This book was an inspirational, chick book that any woman would enjoy reading. I found myself wrapped up with the main character and had a hard time putting it down. The author has a wonderful ability to describe the emotions that all of us experience during our lifetime. The book left me feeling positive about life and believing in mankind again.

    I chose to read this book because I had loved 'The Secret Life of Bees' by the same author. I did not love this one as much, but it still has a great story. I do not find many books that hold my attention past a couple of chapters, and both of her books did that. Sue Monk Kidd writes in a way that I could picture each scene in my head very clearly. I think that this is a great book and definately recommend it.
