The Secret Life Of Bees

xlcvivLast year my friend Jenifer Thigpen gave me the book “The Secret Life Of Bees.” She said that it was one of her favorite books ever. I read it right before the movie came out. I hear that author used to be the editor for Guide Post. It was a sad story about a little girl who’s mother died when she was very young. She grew up with an abousive father. Her mother had a picture with a negro Mary (the mother of Jesus) and the town Tiburon, SC written on the back. She runs away with her house keeper to try to find out more about her mother and happens upon a house of three sisters who show her love and teach her how to be a women. And finds the answers that her heart has been longing for. They did a really good job with the movie and it stayed very close to the book. The movie stars Queen Latifah, Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Hudson & Alicia Keys.
I was not able to see the movie in theators because of my travels with Women Of Faith. It was released today on DVD so my roomates rented it. I was so excited to see it. It was so much better then I could have thought it would be. I would recommend the book and the moive to you.
