While I was on our wonderful vacation, I was able to read one entire book. I haven't read a book that quickly in years, although I used to do so quite frequently. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, titled "The Secret Life of Bees". I have heard of this book before, and am wondering if anyone else had read it. I found it easy reading, and while certainly sad, the book touched upon the Big Question - Am I Loved? It was hopeful, loving, and uplifting, despite the tragic circumstances that occur in the story. It addresses Mary the Mother of God in some rather unusual, but not disrespectful, ways. Truly, this was a book I was sad to finish, and definately worth the time invested in reading it.
