My original title for this post was Savoir because there are some books that you just savoir; you can't wait to get in bed and read them, yet you don't want to read too fast or too much because you just know that you are going to hate it when it ends. The Secret Life of Bees is such a book. The characters are warm & charming and Lily, the main character, lets you into the depths of her soul, her young but wise old soul. I found myself crawling into this book at night or in the morning before i had to get up. These are characters that you just know and love and thus you never want it to end. Well, it ended for me this morning and predictably, I am sad-No more Lily, no more August, Rosaleen, May, Zach, no more crawling into their remarkable world and friendships at the end of the day. This one is definitely taking a place on my Favorite books of all times list and one i might even have to read again. I loved this book. Kudos Sue Monk Kidd.
