The Secret Life of Bees Overview

Sue Monk Kidd’s first novel, The Secret Life of Bees, became an award winning best-seller and was adapted into a hit movie. The story takes place in the 1960s in South Carolina at the time when the Civil Rights Act was passed by then President Johnson. Racism was still quite common in the South at that time, so the relationship between Lily and the other characters is seen as very unusual.
