About the book!

The Secret Life of Bees is a popular book among book clubs and English classes for the themes of motherhood, spirituality, and racial tension during the civil war time. I suggest this book to people who have a passion for learning about how people dealt with the rough times throughout their lives.

Comments about the book

New York times says that "The film insists so strenuously on its themes of redemption, tolerance, love and healing" and " that it winds up defeating itself, and robbing Ms. Kidd’s already maudlin tale of its melodramatic heat"
