Giveaway: TRAVELING WITH POMEGRANATES by Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor


Thanks to the generous folks at Penguin USA,
I have been authorized to
giveaway two (2) copies of
TRAVELING WITH POMEGRANATES.

Rules for entering this giveaway are at the bottom of this post.



by Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor
Pub. Date: September 2009
Publisher: Penguin Group (USA)
Format: Hardcover, 304pp
ISBN-13: 9780670021208
ISBN: 0670021202

Synopsis (from the publisher):

An introspective and beautiful dual memoir by the #1 New York Times bestselling novelist and her daughter


Sue Monk Kidd has touched millions of readers with her novels The Secret Life of Bees and The Mermaid Chair and with her acclaimed nonfiction. 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.

A wise and involving book about feminine thresholds, spiritual growth, and renewal, Traveling with Pomegranates is both a revealing self-portrait by a beloved author and her daughter, a writer in the making, and a momentous story that will resonate with women everywhere.
