3.0 out of 5 stars I guess this book was just not for me., 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mermaid Chair (Kindle Edition)
Having read 2 other books from Sue Monk Kidd and rating those 5 stars, I was keen to read this book but was left very disappointed.

The story follows Jessie, as she travels back to the island she grew up on to try and help her mother after she cut off her own finger. The theme is about Jessie’s ‘finding herself’ after her daughter has moved away and her relationship with her husband becomes stagnant. She is at the point in her life when she needs and welcomes some excitement and also finds that she needs to discover more about the mysterious death of her Father when she was a child. There are some religious issues raised and this book also seems to resonate with women of a certain age that have had similar experiences as Jessie.

I’m not sure if I missed the point, or if I am too young, or if it’s because I don’t have children but I really didn’t understand why things happened the way that they did. I liked the characters and enjoyed the writing. I followed the storyline and enjoyed the book as a read but it didn’t ‘connect’ with me. I cared what happened enough to finish the book but didn’t find myself excited by what I was reading.
