The Secret Life of Bees

(Storpocket)
Beskrivning:

DON'T MISS THE EXTRAORDINARY NEW NOVEL FROM SUE MONK KIDD, THE BOOK OF LONGINGS - PUBLISHED ON 21ST APRIL 2020, AND AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW

The Secret Life of Bees: The multi-million-copy bestselling novel about a young girl's journey towards healing and the transforming power of love, from the award-winning author of The Invention of Wings.

Lily has grown up believing she accidentally killed her mother when she was 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 unforgiving father, she has only one friend, Rosaleen, a black servant.

When racial tension explodes one summer afternoon, and Rosaleen is arrested and beaten, Lily chooses to flee with her. 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.

'A wonderful book, by turns sad, full of incident and shot through with grown-up magic reminiscent of Joanne Harris' Daily Telegraph

'Charming, funny, moving' The Times

'Wonderfully written, powerful, poignant...read it' Joanna Trollope
