Fourteen-year-old Lily Owens lost her beloved mother when she was only four under tragic circumstances clouded by time and secrecy. Later, she found a fiercely protective surrogate in her abusive father's outspoken housekeeper, Rosaleen. Ignoring differences in age and color as well as the racial hatred that seethed during the summer of 1964 in rural South Carolina, these two unlikely companions set off on a seemingly aimless pilgrimage
The secret life of bees by Sue Monk Kidd( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Set in South Carolina in 1964, [this book] tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. 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.-Back cover
