Another excellent read...

Never mind that it can be a struggle at times to keep up with the daily demands of running a household and parenting two small kids, I still found the time to read this book in less than 3 sittings (feet a-dragging the following morning, laundry piling up...). Sue Monk Kidd is a gifted storyteller, possessing the rare ability to pull her readers into the preexisting world of her novel--in all its depth and clarity. Fictional, yet still powerfully real, I was irresistibly consumed by the lives of her characters, and completed the last half in one night. It was worth staying up until wee hours of morning to experience this story--not sure it would have been quite as enjoyable otherwise.
