When Lily's fierce-hearted "stand-in mother", Rosaleen, insults three of the town's fiercest racists, Lily decides they should both escape to Tiburon, South Carolina - a town that holds the secret to her mother's past. There, they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters who introduce Lily to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna who presides over their household.
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.

Yes. Im sure I will. It was a beautiful Story.
When June breaks down crying after the break up.
She was awesome. I cant think of anyone that couldve done better!!!
More than likely June. She reminds me a lot of myself!
Great read!!! I loved the movie but the book was so much better. More detail and everything!!! PERFECTION!!!
This book was so easy to follow. The narrator did a great job at bringing the reader into the story! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a nice southern story.
I highly recommend this book to women of all ages! The narrator is extremely talented and transports us to the exact time and place of the story. This is must hear for all audio lovers.
I was terribly sad for this book to end. To say I had my heart spoken to and cared for is an understatement. I'm looking forward to other books by Sue Monk Kidd - she is a wonderful author.
