A few times in my lifetime I have encountered a book worth reading, only to find I didn't really read it, I lived it. This book was one of those.
I didn't want to put it down once I started it.
I am telling everyone I know to read "The Secret Life of Bees."

In Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees, Lily Owen, spends half of her time fantasizing about her dead mother. The other half, she spends hating her father, whom she calls T-Ray because he doesn't seem like a Daddy to her. * * *

This is an inspiring book that illustrates the power of sisterhood that exists within women's hearts and souls. The book's message shows how mature women can make a difference in the lives of young girls and young women. I will be sharing this with teachers in my school.

Wonderful novel! Even though I'm not into the Madonna "thing," the creative use of language, the strong characters, the historical accuracies and view points are woven together to create a rich story of love, healing, and coming of age. My favore aspect is the bees - aspects of the bees bring this novel close to magical realism. Nothing short of delightful and moving.
