Synopsis:

After her "stand-in mother," a bold black woman named Rosaleen, insults the three biggest racists in town, Lily Owens, whose life has been defined by the tragic death of her mother, joins Rosaleen on a journey to Tiburon, South Carolina, where they are taken in by three black, bee-keeping sisters who show them the true meaning of love and family. Reprint.


Review:

"A wonderfully written debut that rather scants its subject of loss and discovery...in favor of a feminist fable celebrating the company of women....Despite some dark moments, more honey than vinegar."

Kirkus, 10/15/2001

Review:

"[W]ell-intentioned, big-hearted, and sometimes as syrupy-sweet as the honey for which the industrious insects in the title are known. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but be warned....The good guys are flawless in this morality tale, the villains are wholly without decency....Nevertheless, despite its occasionally ham-handed symbolism, THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES can be rather touching."

Chris Bohjalian, Washington Post Book World, 01/13/2002

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1st New edition. 198 x 128 mm. Brand New Book. The multimillion-copy-bestselling first novel by the author of The Invention of Wings, coming from Viking in January 2014 The Secret Life of Bees was a New York Times bestseller for more than two and a half years, a Good Morning America Read This Book Club pick and was made into an award-winning film starring Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, and Alicia Keys. A coming of age tale set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees will appeal to fans of Kathryn Stockett s The Help and Beth Hoffman s Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, and tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. When Lily s fierce-hearted black stand-in mother, Rosaleen, insults three of the town s most vicious racists, Lily decides they should both escape to Tiburon, South Carolina--a town that holds the secret to her mother s past. There they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters who introduce Lily to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna who presides over their household. This is a remarkable story about divine female power and the transforming power of love--a story that women will continue to share and pass on to their daughters for years to come.
