After an entrepreneurial memoir and a Faulkner classic I didn’t get into, I enjoyed the powerful story of the Secret Life of Bees, a bestseller recommended to me by my friend Tim Taylor.

Good for anyone who likes a Southern plot amidst racial tensions, mother-daughter-father relations, or yes, bees.
