From My Contemporary Shelves

THE MERMAID CHAIR

By Sue Monk Kidd

I recently read this book for the first time. It was good, used a lot of symbolism, and had some very likeable characters. It was also the type of book that makes you want to take the main character and shake her really hard or slap her around. I mean, she has a great guy at home, so why risk it all for...........well, I don't want to give away the plot. It had a very satisfying ending, though. I recommend it!

My feelings exactly!  I had such high hopes for this story as I had just finished "The Secret Life of Bees" by the same author which I enjoyed so much that after I finished reading it, I borrowed the audio version from the library to listen to again.
