There is something about the Old South....

Having absolutely loved "The Help", I turned to "The Secret Life Of Bees". It was a slow, uncomfortable read at the beginning: I couldn't connect to the heroine, and I positively abhorred her father and the things that happened to her in the past.

What kept me reading was the beauty of the writing style and the clever parallels between the lives of bees and the story line. A few paragraphs were so poetic, I'd like to have the book on my shelf just for the pleasure of leafing through it from time to time.

I'm re-reading "To Kill A Mockingbird" now.....
