"A moving first novel... Lily is an authentic and winning character and her story compellingly told."-USA Today

Lily Owens, the protagonist or narrator of her story, appeared at first as beaten down and abused from her father, with a blurry image of the accidental death of her mother.But when something goes wrong, she finds herself in Tiburon, South Carolina with her "stand-in-mother" Rosaleen. Lily is taken in by a trio of black sisters who make honey and live in a hot pink house. While she stays there, she encounters the captivating world of bees. This remarkable novel shows female power, irrationality of racism and forgiveness.
