Summary
Living on a peach farm in South Carolina with her harsh, unyielding father, Lily Owens has shaped her entire life around one devastating, blurred memory--her mother's death when Lily was four. Since then, her only real companion has been Rosaleen, a fierce-hearted black woman and "stand-in mother." When Rosaleen insults three town racists, Lily and she take off for Tiburon, a name found on the back of a picture that belonged to Lily's mother. There they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters named May, June, and August. Maternal loss and betrayal, guilt and forgiveness, entwine in a story that leads Lily to the single thing her heart longs for most. Set in the early 1960s
