Book Giveaway! Traveling with Pomegranates

CONTEST HAS ENDED.

Stay tuned for more book giveaways in the next few weeks! Thanks for your support!


Traveling with Pomegranates by Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees) and Ann Kidd Taylor has just been released, and to celebrate, I'm giving away a copy of the book to TWO of my readers!


In this intimate dual memoir, she and her daughter, Ann, offer distinct perspectives as a fifty-something and a twenty-something, each on a quest to redefine herself and to rediscover each other.

Between 1998 and 2000, Sue and Ann travel throughout Greece and France. Sue, coming to grips with aging, caught in a creative vacuum, longing to reconnect with her grown daughter, struggles to enlarge a vision of swarming bees into a novel. Ann, just graduated from college, heartbroken and benumbed by the classic question about what to do with her life, grapples with a painful depression. As this modern-day Demeter and Persephone chronicle the richly symbolic and personal meaning of an array of inspiring figures and sites, they also each give voice to that most protean of connections: the bond of mother and daughter.

This is a book that every daughter, every mother and every woman will identify with. It's a story of true relationships and love. I adore this book. I'm passing on my copy to my mom the next time I see her!

Regardless of whether I win it from you or not, this is totally going on my reading list for The Project. What a great concept!

Nicole said...

jeeezzz another book to add to my list. When am I ever going to get to all of them?

I guess if I win one, it will be easier to read if it's right there instead of having to go out and buy it!

what a fabulous idea for a book - mothers and daughters are enriched by hearing about other mothers and daughters, especially when each has challenges of her own. And looking forward to a Greek vacation next year? I'm particularly interested. Thanks for offering this!
