Hi, I just wanted to express my compliment on this book. I loved how you colored everything you saw. The language was so delightful. The story was wonderful. Thank you. And I also learned so much about bees. In fact I had went into the hospital for a precedure for my Heart and in the recovery room which was so much like being in one of the combs, watching the many attendants working so hard to see that all the paients were well cared for and the one queen bee Carol, who was directing all her workers. I sent a thank you and used some of your writings to express my thanks in taking care of me. I can hardly wait to read The Mermaid Chair.
I love that fact that you write books that are spiritual. You are truly a wonderful writer. All The Best, Cherrie Rothenbuhler

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.
