Publisher's Summary

"I was amazed to find that I had no idea how to unfold my spiritual life in a feminine way. I was surprised, and, in fact, a little terrified, when I found myself in the middle of a feminist spiritual reawakening." (Sue Monk Kidd) 
For years, Sue Monk Kidd was a conventionally religious woman. Then, in the late 1980s, she experienced an unexpected awakening, and began a journey toward a feminine spirituality. With the exceptional storytelling skills that have helped make her name, Kidd tells her very personal story of the fear, anger, healing, and freedom she experienced on the path toward the wholeness that many women have lost in the church. 
From a jarring encounter with sexism in a suburban drugstore, to monastery retreats and to rituals in the caves of Crete, she reveals a new level of feminine spiritual consciousness for all women - one that retains a meaningful connection with the "deep song of Christianity", embraces the sacredness of ordinary women's experience, and has the power to transform in the most positive ways every fundamental relationship in a woman's life - her marriage, her career, and her religion.

Not quite what I'd hoped for

SMK's previous title, "When the Heart Waits", is one of my favorite books of all time, a true spiritual classic. This one, not so much. I understand (from personal experience) the journey out of traditional religion and the need to cast off psychologically and spiritually abusive worldviews, so I'm not faulting SMK for taking that road. What this book lacked for me was a sense of universality and true depth -- it read like the travelogue/diary of a very privileged straight white Southern Christian lady who slowly transforms into a very privileged straight white Southern New Age lady. Some interesting insights here and there, to be sure, but overall a bit too narrowly focused and self-indulgent for my taste.

Appetizer for her newer book

Sue Monk Kidd’s spiritual journey is as pertinent today as it was 20 years ago. I am grateful it was reissued. I found it inspirational and affirming of my own journey. However, having read the other reviews, I see now that I need to get her 2018 book, When the Heart Waits.
