Just finished reading a great book called "The secret life of bees" by Sue Monk Kidd. Every beekeeper should try and read this book. It is about a young girl who is trying to find the answers to her past, ends up running away from home and gets taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters. Takes place in South Carolina in 1964.
"The little girl is introduced to the mesmerizing world of bees and honey and more importantly, the tale is about what family really means and the strange and wondrous places we find love".(quote from the book)
I just enjoyed this story so much and all the wonderful references to beekeeping.
