A to Z Blogging Challenge 2013- K

For this year’s A-Z Challenge, I have chosen to
highlight some of the authors and their books, that
we, in our book club, have either read, as a group,

separately  or have been recommended by someone
in our on-line group.

K is for  Kidd, Sue Monk - The Secret Life of Bees

From Amazon:

Fans of The Help will love Sue Monk Kidd’s Southern coming of age tale. The Secret Life of Bees was a New York Times bestseller for more than 125 weeks, 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. 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 share and pass on to their daughters for years to come.

Sue Monk Kidd, takes us on a journey that's both surprising and haunting. It solidifies the secret bond of sisters and daughters.Thoroughly enjoyable!

    1. I have seen it, but can't recall where. I personally liked the book better, but that's just me. The movie was good, too.

  3. I've really been wanting to read this book. It sounds incredible.

    Happy A to Z blogging.

    1. It is a good book. The pictures in your mind are every bit as good as the ones on the big screen. Thanks for visiting my post.
