From the New York Times bestselling author of THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES and THE INVENTION OF WINGS and her daughter comes a touching and perceptive memoir about mothers and daughters that will resonate with women of all ages. 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 vel that she feels compelled to write, whilst newly-graduated Ann ponders the classic question of what to do with her life.
Sue Monk Kidd is the author of three novels, all of which have been international bestsellers: The Secret Life Of Bees, The Mermaid Chair and The Invention Of Wings. The Secret Life Of Bees spent two years on the New York Times bestseller list, was long-listed for the Orange Prize, and was turned into an award-winning film. The Mermaid Chair and The Invention of Wings were both No. 1 New York Times bestsellers. Sue is also the author of several acclaimed non-fiction books including Travelling with Pomegranates, which she co-wrote with her daughter Ann Kidd Taylor. Sue lives in Florida with her husband Sandy. Ann Kidd Taylor lives in South Carolina with her husband and son. Travelling With Pomegranates, written with her mother, is her first book.
