DON'T MISS THE EXTRAORDINARY NEW NOVEL FROM SUE MONK KIDD, THE BOOK OF LONGINGS - PUBLISHED ON 21ST APRIL 2020, AND AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW The Secret Life of Bees: The multi-million-copy bestselling novel about a young girl's journey towards healing and the transforming power of love, from the award-winning author of The Invention of Wings. Lily has grown up believing she accidentally killed her mother when she was four years old. Now, at fourteen, she yearns for forgiveness and a mother's love. Living on a peach farm in South Carolina with her harsh and unforgiving father, she has only one friend, Rosaleen, a black servant.
