I love reading books about people overcoming their obstacles. Even if it's fiction, it makes me take a good, hard look at my life and wonder how I would react in those situations and it helps me put my struggles in perspective, focusing on what really matters. The characters in "The Secret Life of Bees", by Sue Monk Kidd, were more than just survivors. They were conquerors of their circumstances and time (the south in 1964). Lily lost her mother at a young age and her father was not a positive influence in her life. Lily and her black nanny, Rosaleen, ran away to a place that Lily believed would reveal more about her mother and hopefully be a safe place for them to take refuge. They met many women that became their family. Click on the picture below and read more about this book. Check it out today!
