The Secret Life of Bees Book

 "Fully imagined...the core of this story is Lily's search for a mother, and she finds one in a place she never expected." —The New York Times Book Review



"The stunning metaphors and realistic characters are so poignant they will bring tears to your eyes." —Library Journal

"A moving first novel...Lily is an authentic and winning character and her story is compellingly told. The bees presage her journey toward self-acceptance, faith and freedom that is at the heart of this novel." —USA Today

"Inspiring. Sue Monk Kidd is a direct literary descendant of Carson McCullers."
—The Baltimore Sun
