Perhaps it's a timing thing, but this book was an amazing read for me. Like the author, I am going through a bit of a funk in midlife so her stories and insights resonated with me. Perhaps I would not enjoy it at another stage in life but right now it was the book I needed to read.

This is an excellent source text for those who are on a personal spiritual journey or are leading a spiritual retreat. Sue Monk Kidd encountering a mid-life crisis writes of her transformation of the spirit to become more what God would have us evolve into.
