The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

Cover via Goodreads

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.

I liked this book a lot. I liked the authentic voice, southern setting, and complex characters. I didn’t love anything about it – maybe because I read it during a busy time, maybe because some of the aspects of the story were difficult to get into, like the Black Madonna. Sue Monk Kidd handled the race issue well though, which ultimately led me to liking the book more than disliking it.

Recommended for those who like female power stories (feminism in general, I guess) and books written with a strong southern voice.
