Five of us met to discuss Traveling With Pomegranates by Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor. It was a great discussion of a mediocre book. And I think that, after our discussion, mediocre is being generous. This mother and daughter traveled to Greece and France and detailed the minutea of their relationship with each other and the crossroads they happen to be at in their lives. Well, let’s just say that one book club member described them as a couple of “cry babies” and we all agreed. So maybe you are tempted to read this one now, just to see why we disliked it or you can just read The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd and forget about this one.

Or try one these recommended titles:

The Red Thread by Ann Hood

Home by Toni Morrison (She was just awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom!)
