A highly charged tale full of sexual and spiritual desire. Every bit as moving and convincing as The Secret Life of Bees * Mirror * The novel has humour and a profound feeling for its primeval landscape of mud flats and salt creeks... [A] sensitively plotted emotional journey * Time Out * It's hard to put this book down for little things like sleeping and eating * Elle * Compelling reading.... The writing is soulful in its probing of the human heart and family secrets * San Francisco Chronicle * Emotionally rich... full of sultry, magical descriptions of life in the South... sure to be another hit for Kidd * Publishers Weekly * Her writing is so smart and sharp, she gives new life to old midlife crises, and she draws connections from the feminine to the divine to the erotic that a lesser writer wouldn't see, and might not have the guts to follow * Time * Book clubs, start your engines. . . . [The Mermaid Chair] is a tapestry strengthened by bonds between women that bridge pain and loss * USA Today * Sex, an eccentric cast and flashes of the black humour lighten a mid-life meditation on the nature of love, loss and redemption * Scotsman *
