The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd.
I found this book on the Staff Recommends table at the Central Library. The book jacket summary intrigued me although this is not a book I would normally read. I'm glad I did. The main character, Jessie, simultaneously undergoes four life changing events. Her mother becomes ill, she has an affair with a monk, separates from her husband, and learns the truth about her father's death. I couldn't stop listening to this book as I constantly wondered what choices Jessie would make next. I thoroughly enjoyed Eliza Foss the reader of this book. Check catalog for availability.
