THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES, Sue Monk Kidd - A friend from work loaned me this book and I have to admit; I wasn't as taken with this book as everyone else seems to be. It was a "sweet" read. Nothing more, nothing less. (Umm...I think I just channeled the Ivory soap jingle) Set in South Carolina in 1964, we find the story of Lily Owens, whose life is shaped and scarred by the memory of her mother's accidental death. Lily escapes, with her, for lack of a better term, Mammy (Rosaleen) to Tiburon, S. Carolina after Rosaleen insults three white men. A big No, No in the 1960's south. They are taken in by three bee-keeping sisters who help Lily confront her past and learn what it means to be part of a family. I can totally picture Bees as a movie which is great because the movie adaptation of Bees will be in theaters this Friday, October 17. There are some heavy hitters in this film - Queen Latifah (me loves her!!), Jennifer Hudson, Dakota Fanning, Sophie Okonedo, Alicia Keys and Paul Nettany. I will have to talk someone into viewing this movie with me!
