The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
The Secret Life of Bees

MM, September 14, 2011

This is a book I find myself returning to time and time again to warm my heart and feed my spirit. The book describes the secret life of bees in rich and mesmerizing detail, but also is about the secret life of women, and the female kinship which transcends ethnicity and age. From the first time I read it I felt myself with old friends, as did my real-life friends, and I strongly believe there is a little of Lily, August, June, and May in each of us.
