From the New York Times bestselling author of THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES and THE INVENTION OF WINGS and her daughter comes a touching and perceptive memoir about mothers and daughters that will resonate with women of all ages. Sue Monk Kidd and her daughter Ann chronicle their travels together at a time when each had reached an important turning point in her life. What emerged was a quest for Ann and Sue to redefine themselves and also rediscover one other. Against the backdrop of the sacred sites of Greece, Turkey and France, Sue grapples with the problem of how to expand her vision of swarming bees into the novel that she feels compelled to write, whilst newly-graduated Ann ponders the classic question of what to do with her life.

Review quote

'Thoughtful, honest and uplifting...' Los Angeles Times 'As the writers sightsee, they connect to and challenge each other in ways that make you want to hit the road with the important women in your life, even if the corner Starbucks is the only realistic destination for now' Redbook 'Any mother or daughter would enjoy and relate to the touching struggle of developing a close relationship as adult women... Fans of The Secret Life of Bees will enjoy this retelling of the period in Kidd's life when she was conceiving and creating the novel' Coralie Carlson, Associated Press 'Richly layered... An eye-opening, consciousness-raising approach to travelling, packed with insights and examples that teach us how we might better interpret the small miracles on our own itinerary--whether it takes us around the world, or just around the block' Atlanta Journal Constitution 'When [Sue Monk Kidd] teamed up with her daughter... we knew to expect a great read. Traveling with Pomegranates was just that: a travelogue describing the duo's journeys through France, Greece, and Turkey, as well as their personal journeys to discover their separate feminine identities after quarter- and mid-life crises' Charleston City Paper
