Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: La historia transcurre en el Sur de Estados Unidos en 1964, año de la lucha por los Derechos Civiles. Aislada en una finca, con un padre frio que no la cuida, Lily Owens, muchacha de catorce años, ha pasado gran parte de su vida echando de menos a su madre Deborah, quien fallecio en misteriosas circunstancias cuando ella tenia cuatro años. Para empeorar la cuestion, su padre T. Ray le dice a Lily que ella mato a su madre sin querer. / Sue Monk Kidd's ravishing debut novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. When Lily's fierce-hearted ""stand-in mother,"" Rosaleen, insults three of the town's fiercest racists, Lily decides they should both escape to Tiburon, South Carolina--a town that holds the secret to her mother's past. There they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters who introduce Lily to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna who presides over their household. This is a remarkable story about divine female power and the transforming power of love--a story that women will share and pass on to their daughters for years to come.
