    Sue Monk Kidd image from her FB pages The Secret Life of Bees is a lovely tale It tells of Lily, a South Carolina 14 year old She lives, unhappily, with her crusty father T Ray and Rosaleen, the woman who raised her after her mother died when Lily was 4 It is a coming of age tale set against the civil rights issues of the early 60 s It is certainly no coincidence that Lily as in white spends most of th
