Lily has grown up believing she accidentally killed her mother when she was just four years old. Now, at fourteen, she yearns for forgiveness and a mother's love. Living on a peach farm in South Carolina with her harsh and unyielding father, she has only one friend, Rosaleen, a black servant.

When racial tension explodes one summer afternoon, and Rosaleen is arrested and beaten, Lily is compelled to act. Fugitives from justice, the pair follow a trail left by the woman who died ten years before. Finding sanctuary in the home of three beekeeping sisters, Lily starts a journey as much about her understanding of the world, as about the mystery surrounding her mother.


Picked up from a charity shop in Broomhill. Knew this book was on the BC most registered list, so thought I'd give it a try.

This was sweet, atmospheric, very human and very real. Recommended.

Thanks ever so to Neverbelilith what a truly lovely story! I read this over the week-end when I needed a lift, and this was just the ticket.
