The Secret Life of Bees has a rare wisdom about life--about mothers and daughters and the women in our lives who become our true mothers. A remarkable story about the divine power of women and the transforming power of love, this is a stunning debut whose rich, assured, irresistible voice gathers us up and doesn't let go, not for a moment. It is the kind of novel that women share with each other and that mothers will hand down to their daughters for years to come.
A friend shared this book with me and I read it today during my day of rest. A bit of language but a wonderful story.
My DH made dinner tonight. He made grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. He unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher while I napped.
I married a wonderful man!
