So I just finished reading the Mermaid's Tail wirtten by Sue Monk Kidd. This is the second novel that I have read by this author, the first being the Secret Life of Bees.
It took some time for me to get into this book. I didn't find it moved as quickly as Secret Life of Bees. But the ending was fantatstic, couldn't put it down.
It is a comming of age story of a stay at home mom of a university student, her husband a phsychatrist, trying to find her place in the world when she recieves a phone call in the middle of the night, that her astranged mother has cut off her finger with a cleaver. Jessie returns to the small island where she grew up to try and bring peace to her mom, and find her place in her changing role of mom and wife.
An easy read
