    Secret Life of Bees-***Spoiler Warning***

    I know Jean's working on a book section of getcrafty but I am just so anxious to discuss this book I had to start this thread.

    I want to give ample spoiler notice though so posts after this one will have spoiler details about the book.

    So I finished The Secret Life of Bees a few days ago. I feel like it's still sinking in. I took your ladies' advice and read it at a relaxed pace although at times I wanted to read it all night just to get to the end it was so good.

    Did you feel this book affected you? Stories about looking for home and finding it where you least expect it have always gotten to me. And stories about Black Madonnas get to me. I have a fascination with them and their ties to Goddess statues.

    I loved the quotes from bee books at the beginning of every chapter. I was a bit disheartened at the very beginning-I was worried this book would just be about how depressing and abusive her childhood was. But I stuck thru and I was completly wrong.

    I kept thinking her and Zach would get together. But the somewhat open ending was better in a way because it just showed how open the future was for Lily.

    I'm really curious about the purple honey. How common is that?

    I listened to the book on tape almost a year ago and I have found that some of the imagery has stuck with me for so long. It's amazing. Like thinking about when they were rubbing the honey into the statue.

    Also, it got me to try using honey on my skin!

    I love that book! I've been eating more honey than ever. I really like the idea of the wailing wall, (was that what they called it?) even though it was so sad, it really is a nice idea.

    I have not read the book, but it was listed under recommended reading on the shawl ministry website http://www.shawlministry.com/books.htm. Does it have knitting in it specifically, or do you think it was recommended more as a spiritual read? The Red Tent is also on there, for example.

    Hmm...No knitting but there was certainly a DIY atmosphere to the book.

    I'm eating more honey now too and I'm eating locally made honey. I have it in tea and put it in my smoothies.

    Oh! I would love to listen to it on audio book as well! That would rock seriously.

    I just finished it. Am I the only person who didn't like it? It just made me want to read To Kill a Mockingbird.
