The Mermaid Chair - Sue Monk Kidd
This is my first book for the Summer Reading Challenge, and I did enjoy it. I didn't enjoy it as much as "The Secret Life of Bees" by the same author, but it was still a fast read and kept my interest. I'm sure there is lots of symbolism with the ocean and mermaids, etc., but I am frankly not in the mood for deep analysis. I liked the characters, the premise was interesting, and it held my interest for a few bus rides. That's all I'm asking for my summer reading, and this one sufficed.
