Delicately written. What did I learn? To trust the imaginative ways we listen to ourselves - and to hold it carefully, but lightly. ( )

oh my gosh, more complaining (about vacations to Europe) than you can imagine. Nice of mom to help her daughter, but oof. ( )

Picked up as a book club selection at our library and enjoyed it much more than I anticipated. It's a wonderful dual perspective on mother/daughter travels ( )

I really enjoy reading memoirs, and this book didn't disappoint. I absolutely loved both "The Secret Life of Bees" and "The Mermaid Chair" by Sue, and when I saw another book by her - and it was a memoir, no less! - I knew I had to read it. The chapters vacillate back and forth between Sue's perspective and that of her daughter, Ann, as they both work through difficult passages in their lives during the same time period. As Ann is graduating college and trying to figure out what she is going to do with her life, Sue is reaching the milestone age of 50, where menopause is looming. Over the period of a few years, they take a couple of trips together to Greece where they delve into the mythological tales of Demeter and Persephone and the like and explore the symbolism of those stories in order to help them journey through their own difficult passages in life to be able to re-emerge on the other side with a renewed and rejuvenated view of their lives both individually and in relation to one another. I really enjoyed the opportunity to take this journey with them and see their joint perspectives on life in contrast to one another. I have a daughter myself, and although we are currently about 10 years away from reaching these passages, I know the time will be here before we know it. I feel as though, through reading this book, I have been able to peer through a window into my future, and it should provide enlightenment for me when my daughter and I reach these same points in our lives. I recommend this book for all moms of daughters, as well as anyone who enjoys a good memoir. ( )

I think I would have liked this quite a bit more if it had been read by someone other than the authors. They both read as though they are reading a history textbook in front of the class.

The book itself is well written, I enjoyed the story. Mother and daughter traveling together to Greece and France, and getting to know each other and themselves better along the way. I also enjoyed the feminine divine in all her aspects presented.

My recommendation: read the book and skip the audiobook. ( )

This book is heavy on introspection and light on plot, but any mother or daughter would enjoy and relate to the touching struggle of developing a close relationship as adult women.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerAssociated Press, Coralie Carlson (Sep 8, 2009)
 
It’s an unrelentingly saccharine book, in which the two writers take turns spoon-feeding readers the Meaning of It All. No symbol is left unexplained (at length, and with frequency); no opportunity to preach is untaken. The unexplored life may not be worth living, as Socrates once said, but it turns out the overexplored life is no picnic, either.

Sitting on a bench in the National Archaeological Museum in Greece, I watch my twenty-two-year-old daughter, Ann, angle her camera before a marble bas-relief of Demeter and Persephone unaware of the small ballet she's performing - her slow, precise steps forward, the tilt of her head, the way she dips to one knee as she turns her torso, leaning into the sharp afternoon light.
