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

ruby haze, January 2, 2010

The story is glorious, but what I love most was the author's use of words all the way through. She paints a picture selecting prose which enables the reader to almost 'be' in the story itself. Each word was like a charm on a bracelet to examine closely and admire. I actually read, then re-read paragraphs over and over to make the book last longer!

Fantastic, mesmerizing, spiritually uplifting.
