The Secret Life Of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

This novel is set in the tumultuous South of the 1960s and follows the journey of a young girl named Lily Owens, who is haunted by the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. When Lily's life becomes entangled with the Boatwright sisters—three black beekeeping sisters—she is introduced to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna. This is a tale of self-discovery, as Lily navigates through the complexities of racism, love, and the search for a mother's truth. Through her experiences with the Boatwright sisters and their community, Lily uncovers the strength within herself to confront her past and embrace her own power.
