The Secret Life of Bees

Author : Sue Monk Kidd

Genre : Fiction

Isolated on a South Carolina peach farm with a neglectful and abusive father, Lily Owens, age fourteen, has spend the last ten years of her life longing for her mother, Deborah, who died when Lily was four.

Set in The American South in 1964, the year of the Civil Rights Act, and intensifying racial unrest, Sue Monk Kidd’s beautifully written The Secret Life of Bees is a complex coming-of-age story, how the ability to love can transform our lives, and the sometimes unacknowledged longing for the universal feminine divine. Writing about the wounds of loss, betrayal, and the scarcity of love, and eventual forgiveness, Kidd shows the power of women coming together to heal those wounds, to mother each other and themselves, and to create a safe place of true family and home.
