Yesterday I read “The Secret Life of Bees” in its entirety. I recommend the book to anyone without reservation. It’s a great love story. My daughter had given me a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas. On my way home from Mt. Saviour on Friday afternoon I stopped at the Barnes & Noble in Elmira. Having just read Sue Monk Kidd’s, When the Heart Waits, I was eager to read more by the same author. I was a bit unsure because the Secret Life of Bees seemed to be a book that might appeal more to women. Since it was a New York Times bestseller, I thought “what the heck.” I wasn’t at all unhappy. I couldn’t put the book down. It was riveting.
Now I’m going to read one of Sue’s other books, “Dance of the Dissident Daughter”.
