We go through so many stages as women: first being a child, dependent on our own mothers for everything; then a teenager, raging with hormones and aching for freedom and independence; as young adults we try to figure ourselves out; then we are young women, perhaps wives; motherhood is a distinct and life-changing phase, but soon our children need us less and less; we adjust to the empty nest phase which brings more hormone fluctuations and is a rebirth and a dying as we ask “What now?”
Fifty-something Sue Monk Kidd and her twenty-something daughter Ann Kidd Taylor explore these stages of a woman’s life in Traveling with Pomegranates.
We have two copies to give away — to anyone. U.S. and International residents welcome!
