Included are writings about the author's multiple roles as mother, daughter, wife, nurse, and writer. There are recollections about her extensive travels and reflections on her childhood and marriage. And there are musings on a stream of ordinary moments: watching a bird feeder, a homeless man, a golf tournament, all of which added richness and meaning to the author's journey.

"Fans of Joan Bauer and Louise Rennison will flock to this sweet confection of a first novel, as enjoyable as any treat from the real DQ." (School Library Journal)
"This humorous, romantic romp excels at revealing a situation seldom explored in YA novels." (Booklist)
Sue Monk Kidd is one of my favorite authors, so I found it interesting to hear her early thoughts... It wasn't as "schmaltzy" as I expected, and she clearly came out of the box as a pretty polished writer... Don't read expecting a story - it's a series of essays organized by theme. I wish that someone would do an audible version of Dance of the Dissident Daughter.
