Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In 1998, Sue Monk Kidd (THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES) and her daughter, Ann Kidd Taylor, make an emotional and spiritual journey of self-discovery through Greece and France. While a bit heavy-handed in ancient symbols and mythical allusions, the work is deeply felt and honestly expressed. The authors narrate in alternate sections. Both Kidd and Taylor have soft, pleasant voices that provide natural readings. Sue, at 50, confronts her womanhood, motherhood, and mortality. Ann, just out of college and a four-year relationship, wrestles with what's ahead and what she really wants. Years later, when the two travel back to Greece and France, revisiting and reflecting, mother and daughter come together in an even deeper, truer connection.
