A mother and daugther write separately about trips they take together, beginning with a trip to Greece as the daughter struggles to figure out what to do with her life and her mother struggles with the onset of menopause. I really enjoyed Sue's early chapters because they thoughtfully explored the topic of growing older as a woman, which is still a relatively rare topic in either fiction or nonfiction. After that it was too much Black Madonna this, grey-eyed Athena that, Joan of Arc blahdity blah blah. All in all, too much navel-gazing and earnest musings about female archetypes for my taste. I like my tales of spirtual journeys to have a more acerbic or self-depricating bite to them.
