The Secret Life of Bees
2 journalers for this copy...
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.
