THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES by Sue Monk Kidd, read by Jenna Lamia
With release of the film, we'd like to remind you of this great audiobook. Fourteen-year-old Lily Owens explains: her mother is dead, her father hates her, and the popular girls in school laugh at her. It's 1964, and she takes off with her black caretaker and finds refuge at the Black Madonna Honey farm. The novel is funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting all at once. Jenna Lamia delivers a tour de force narration. Reviewed by Leslie Fine.
