Following encouraging words from “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd are so accurate: “You have to find a mother inside yourself. We all do. Even if we already have a mother, we still have to find this part of ourselves inside.” That’s insightful.
This is a very sweet story about a 14 year old Lily Owens. I admired the character of August Boatwright as she is intelligent and full of wisdom. Also, I learnt a lot about bees. While reading this novel I had a craving for honey. So, I recommend buying a bottle of honey before you start reading this novel.
