About book Traveling With Pomegranates: A Mother-Daughter Story (2009)

I loved this book. I didn't expect to. I "had" to read it for my book club at my work, at a Catholic school. I started off as someone educated in the Marian tradition thinking don't let Protestants lecture me on Mary. Well, how wrong was I? I now know more about the Persephone/Demeter Greek myth, and the trinity of maiden, mother and crone. Also, as a mother of a young woman in her first year of work after university, now living away from home and now with an empty nest, I also found a lot to understand in the mother/daughter situation so cleverly portrayed in this book. It was a library book, and I have written right through it (softly in pencil...all the better to rub out)shame on me! Don't tell anyone I have turned down the corners of pages... so much worth noting in this book, maybe I will give the library the money and keep the book! Mothers and daughters, how we change. How close we are. How difficult it is to step back and say "over to you". Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor, I salute you! Traveling with Pomegranates is so emotionally moving! Mother and daughter understand themselves and each other through traveling to sacred places and meditating on myths. I'm fascinated by some of the things they encountered, such as the cave where Persephone is believed to have been reunited with Demeter after her first winter in Hades, and the ancient Black Madonna statues of France. The narrative voice is incredibly well crafted. We experience many trying and growing times in life, and these two writers are open enough with theirs that I took the journey right with them.
