      The Secret Life of Bees Sue Monk Kidd's ravishing debut novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.

      The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I was skeptical of this book when I found it on the shelf at Goodwill, but I decided to give it a chance and I loved it! Great study on spirituality, racial stereotypes, and finding one's place in the world.

      Friday Favorites | Quote from The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd “Knowing can be a curse on a person’s life. I’d traded in a pack of lies for a pack of truth, and I didn’t know which one was heavier. Which one took the most strength to carry around? It was a ridiculous question, though, because once you know the truth, you can’t ever go back and pick up your suitcase of lies. Heavier or not, the truth is yours now.”
