The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
In South Carolina in 1964, 14-year-old Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around her fuzzy memories of the afternoon her mother was killed, runs away from her abusive father with her "stand-in Mother" Rosaleen. They escape to a town that holds the secret to her mother's past and are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters. Sue Monk Kidd's evocative and moving bestselling debut novel was turned into a movie in 2008
