"The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd. 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. 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.
Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister, Lisa, committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over 20 years later, her father has passed away and she's in New Bern, North Carolina, cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. Lisa is alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now?
