From the Back Cover

From the Bestselling Author of The Secret Life of Bees, an Inspiring Autobiographical Account of Personal Pain, Spiritual Awakening, and Divine Grace

Blending her own experiences with an intimate grasp of spirituality, Sue Monk Kidd relates the passionate and moving tale of her spiritual crisis, when life seemed to have lost meaning and her longing for a hasty escape from the pain yielded to a discipline of "active waiting." This PLUS edition includes a reader's guide.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book about waiting as the title suggests, and is an essential read for anyone who feels that they are waiting on God. Yes, Sue Monk Kidd writes about her waiting resulting from midlife crisis, but the nature of her specific 'wait' is somewhat irrelevent to the message of the book. She explores the concept of a 'call' to wait; that God's purpose for us may require that we spend a period of 'active waiting' in preparation for what is to come. Throughout the book she weaves in the imagery of the caterpillar, who 'waits' cocooned in the darkness of the chrysalis, waiting to become a beautiful butterfly: the glorious embodiment of the 'true self'. But, as you will see, the wait itself becomes almost as important as the unfurling of wings.

This is a beautiful read, which I guarantee will enhance your spiritual journeying. If you read this book, Sue Monk Kidd will become a treasured travelling companion on that journey.

Odd though this may seem, I thoroughly recommend that you read this alongside 'Hope for the Flowers' by Trina Paulus, a children's book about caterpillars Yellow and Stripe, to which Monk Kidd frequently makes reference.

Anyone who is beginning to awaken to the passage of time, in particular, one's own life, will find a kindred spirit among the pages of this book. It's a wonderful companion for quiet musings, meditation or prayer. Sue Monk Kidd's sensitive detail and vivid recounting of her own dilemma's make this book a must read for any woman encountering the huge questions of life. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Who am I after all the hats are off?

A relaxing book to read, I found it difficult to put down, I think it's the only book that I read in a couple of days. It makes one 'think' about 'life' and opens up one's mind to reality and relationships. Good book.

Sue Monk Kidd writes of knowing God in such a deep way, she is well read and uses quotations that reveal this.
Having read this, underlined and high-lighted it, I had to read two of her novels.I was certainly not disappointed in the Secret Life of Bees and The Mermaid Chair, they are well written and a cracking good read.

This is an excellent book. I love the idea of a metamorphosis of the soul and Sue Monk Kidd writes of the process of that
with profound insight.
