From the bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees and the new novel The Invention of Wings (Viking, January 2014) comes a thoughtful, revelatory book of writings on self and spirit

Before she won an international readership with her novels, Sue Monk Kidd was best known for her smart, passionate spiritual writings. Now many of those early stories and essays (most of which first appeared in Guideposts) are collected in one volume, organized around thirteen spiritual motifs. In Firstlight, Kidd charts her emergence as a writer and seeker; reflects on her roles as wife, mother, daughter, nurse, and artist; and assesses what she has learned in settings as far-flung as Africa and her own home. The result is an intimate, uplifting book, filled with moments of recognition and discovery.

About the Author:

SUE MONK KIDD is the author of the novels, The Secret Life of Bees and The Mermaid Chair, and the memoirs, The Dance of the Dissident Daughter, When the Heart Waits, and Firstlight, a collection of early writings. The Secret Life of Bees has spent more than 125 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and was adapted into an award-winning movie. The Mermaid Chair, a #1 New York Times bestseller, was adapted into a television movie. Each of her novels has been translated into more than 24 languages. The recipient of numerous literary awards, Sue lives in South Carolina with her husband.

From AudioFile:

Long before THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES and THE MERMAID CHAIR became bestsellers, Sue Monk Kidd's inspirational writings were well known to readers of Norman Vincent Peale's interdenominational GUIDEPOST MAGAZINE. FIRSTLIGHT is a compilation of many of these early essays. Kidd's special gifts are her ability to identify the divine in everyday occurrences and to give the listener a road map for her own spiritual journey. Kate Forbes reads these essays with a confidence in her voice that adds credibility to the spiritual truths Kidd examines. Forbes's delivery is measured and concise, allowing listeners to reflect and experience epiphanies as they use Kidd's spiritual lens to see the divine in their lives.
