by Sue Monk Kidd. NOTHING to do with bees! I've just searched the archives and have found very little posts on this wonderful, wonderful, book. For those of you looking for a holiday read (I've already started - Scotand!) I would thouroughly recommend this novel. From the very start you feel like Lily, the main character, is part of your life and you are urging her on from the first sentence. It's one of those books where you speak of the main character as if she were a friend. I was so diasppointed when I got to the end as I felt that my relationship with Lily was over...(sad, I know!!!).
