The Mermaid Chair

Not such a great book, but I so loved the movie ... it was filmed just a few miles up the road from where I'm living now ... Cowichan Bay on Vancouver Island ... gorgeous scenery and a young monk who was very nice to look at. There's a great line at the monastery - "the monks shuffled off in various degrees of huff."

I enjoyed her other book, The Secret Life of Bees. and hope to see a movie soon from this one ... just recently heard that it's in the making

Hello! I wandered in here via Stuck in a Book. Am just bowled over by the beauty of your art-work. What a wonderful thing to do to remember the books you've read or the films you've seen!

I was reading your post about Newfoundland from Nov. On our way to the USA from the UK we flew over Newfoundland and were lucky enough to have a cloudless sky. The landscape was so amazing that I now have a wish to visit that province. One day, hopefully.

I have The Mermaid Chair on my tbr pile so I must get that soon. I didn't know there was a movie.

Hi again,

I agree with Cath, your artwork is so beautiful!

I also agree with your review: this book was a bit disappointing after The Secret Life of Bees (although I loved the prologue). I had no idea it was made into a movie.
