14-years-old Lily Owens tells the story of her life. When she was a little girl she shot her mother to death (accidentally), which subsequently and unavoidably turned her life and that of her father T.Ray into a misery.

With often overbearing harshness Lily is being punished for disobediance and at the same time often regarded with contempt and negligence for...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Life of Bees (Taschenbuch)
I have made it a point of reading inspirational books which can help me have a positive outlook to life. Though it reads like a non-fictional memoir, "The Secret Life of Bees" even though it is fictitious, has been tremendously helpful to me as an inspirational book. It is brilliantly written with amazing details and beautiful settings. It showed the unique creativity of the author. This hard to put down book, is sure to capture your heart with its imagery.
Sue Monk Kidd does a brilliant job of laying out a storyline that is not only believable, but is interesting as well. I could not put this book down. Lily Owens will capture your heart. Despite the abuse from the hands of her father T. Ray, she turned out to be a survivor. Sharing her destiny with the beekeeping sisters, and their Black Madonna honey, she finally attains some emotional security in her life. May, one of the sisters is someone who inspires. This is a novel for young adults and adults, because at 14, Lily fights with the hazy memory of her dead mother whom she misses and longs for in rural South Carolina of 1964, where racial violence is inescapable. She finds solace in her surrogate mother - the family's black servant, Rosaleen, who later becomes a victim of racial hatred. It moved on to the escape of Lily and Rosaleen, the search for the identity of Lily's mother's identity and the quest for a sense of belonging in her life This journey led Lily and Rosaleen into the lives of three strange but alluring beekeepers who set Lily who helped Lily to grow up and be at peace with her family and its history.
The story is told through Lily's eyes, mouth, mind and heart, and as such it is deep, hilarious and inspiring. When we read about the beehive and honey-making, we get the sense that Lily has a deep desire for nurturance, owing to the absence of a mother in her life. The Secret Life of Bees will certainly strike a chord with any family.I recommend : THE USURPER A AND OTHER STORIES, NIGHTMARES ECHO, THE JOY OF MOTHERHOOD, DISCIPLES OF

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE POWER OF THE SISTERHOOD OF WOMEN..., 5. März 2006
Von 
This New York Times best selling novel is a beautifully written, coming of age story, set in rural South Carolina in 1964 against the back drop of the civil rights movement. It is the touching story of a young white girl, fourteen year old Lily Owens, whose mother died in a tragic accident when Lily was about four. Lily lives with her father, a harsh man with whom no love is lost, on a peach farm outside Sylvan, South Carolina. Her mother's death stands between them.
Neglected by her father, Lily is brought up by Rosaleen, a big-hearted black woman, who loves Lily and whom Lily loves. Yet, hers is a lonely existence, compounded by her unquenched thirst for information about her mother, Deborah. All she has left of her mother are some cloudy memories and a box containing a few mementos, among them a picture of a Black Madonna, inscribed with the words, "Tiburon, S.C."
When Rosaleen goes into town to register to vote, she feels empowered by the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and has a run-in with the town's three biggest racists, resulting in Rosaleen being taken into custody. Lily arranges for her to break free. Together, they seek sanctuary in Tiburon, South Carolina, where Lily discovers the mystery of the Black Madonna.
Taken in by a trio of middle-aged black women who are sisters, as well as beekeepers, Lily is introduced to the secret life of bees and begins to learn some important life lessons. She also learns something about her mother and finds love where she least expected.
This is simply a beautifully realized novel, written in a true Southern voice by a wonderful writer with a story to tell. It is little wonder that this compelling book has received so many accolades. It is a stunning fiction debut by the author.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Life of Bees (Taschenbuch)
Was soll es, daß die Gefühlsdrüsen so ganz offensichtlich angetriggert werden. Was macht es, daß der böse Vater so ganz der Böse ist und daß die tote Mutter so sehr verklärt wird. Ist doch egal, daß das Rassenklischee so sehr leicht überwunden wird. Macht doch nichts, daß die heile Welt so ganz und gar heile ist. So wünschen wir uns doch manchmal alle unsere Welt. Klare Rollen, klares Gut und Böse, ein befreites Lachen nach den bitteren Tränen...

Das Buch liest sich einfach schön und ist so ganz das Wahre für einsame und ruhige Stunden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Book - Excellent Purchase!, 11. August 2005
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Life of Bees (Taschenbuch)
This is a wonderful, romantic fantasy story. The rich, descriptive language tells a story of the idealism and introspection of a 14-year-old girl in a way no actual 14-year-old girl could express but could certainly feel. Mystical, fantastic, this is not supposed to be a realistic portrayal of a South Carolina town in the 60s and I think those who criticize the book on that basis are missing the entire point of the book. It's been years since I've been as taken with a story as I've been with this one. Lovely book. Two other recent, entertaining purchases I would also recommend are Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" and Perez's "The Losers Club."

14-years-old Lily Owens tells the story of her life. When she was a little girl she shot her mother to death (accidentally), which subsequently and unavoidably turned her life and that of her father T.Ray into a misery.

With often overbearing harshness Lily is being punished for disobediance and at the same time often regarded with contempt and negligence for her needs by her father - which eventually leads to her running away to Tiburon, a town's name written on the back of black madonna once owned by Lily's mother.

The underlying message of the time's civil rights movements is just a passing part of the story, mainly it concentrates on Lily and her effort to get away from her father, find the truth about what T.Ray said about her mother and about her own involvement in her mother's death... finding a new home and a warm welcome with her mother's black nanny...

Read with no expectations and just letting the atmophere soak you up, this is not a bad read - certainly touching, but actually the characters are very black or very white (mainly in terms of character not skin colour)... which is annoying.

Yes, the majority of reviews are overwhelmingly positive - I don't share that sentiment, because at the end of the book I thought "okay, and....?"

nice read to pass the time, nothing more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Powerful coming of age novel, 3. Juli 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Life of Bees (Kindle Edition)
This is a touching novel that immerses the reader in the lives of the characters set against a convincing background. Lily, the main character, has to learn to deal with the personal pain she endures as a result of her complex past and she comes to terms with her suffering as she is embraced by a motherhood of caring women. Highly recommended reading!
