Read the book
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
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!

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.

The Mermaid Chair
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.
