The first thing we notice about mother-daughter relationships in The Secret Life of Bees is that they’re incredibly loving and nurturing. This is especially clear in the first chapters of the book, when Kidd contrasts Lily’s relationship with her cruel, mean-spirited father, T. Ray, with Lily’s fond memories of Deborah.   Set in South Carolina in , this is the tale of Lily Owens, a 14 year-old girl who is haunted by the memory of her late mother. To escape her lonely life and troubled relationship with her father T-Ray, Lily flees with Rosaleen, her caregiver and friend, to a South Carolina town that holds the secret to her mother's past/10(K).

When Lily goes to the house to check on Rosaleen's moving, she sees August is reading Jane Eyre, a novel of Charlotte Bronte's that is similar in some respects to Lily's life. The novel's protagonist, Jane, is an orphan who survives a horrible time in a cruel orphanage and rises to become tutor to a rich man's daughter. Australian Poetry Library.

The Secret Life of Bees The Secret Life of Bees Summary Our narrator, Lily Melissa Owens, spends most of the book describing events that took place the summer she turned When the story begins, she's a lonely and unpopular teenager living in Sylvan, South Carolina (it's fictional—put your map away).

August embodies the new, exotic lifestyles and relationships Lily discovers in Tiburon, at the bee farm. Upon first spotting August, Lily compares her to “an African bride,” something that Lily has never seen, of course, but nevertheless something that Lily associates with the far-away, the pure, and the magical.

DK's The Bee Book is a wonderful introduction to the humble honeybee: nature's hardest worker, and much more than just a provider of honey. Bees are incredibly industrious, brilliant at building, super social, and--most importantly--responsible for /5(58).

Lily needed an adult woman who would feel for her, understand, accept, and help her work out some heavy griefs. And it's this aspect of the story-- birth mother, to mothers in spirit, to mother within in Lily's dawning awareness, that for me touchingly dramatizes the inner growth of Lily paralleling the changes in her outer circumstances.

Read this book, The Bees by Laline Paull, her debut novel, for its originality, for the obvious and extremely interesting research she did on bees and their societal ways, their physical structure and biology and even their sexuality, but not necessarily for its plot and story telling/5().

August also shows Lily a book of poetry that belonged to Deborah. Lily notices one poem in the book, William Blake’s “The Sick Rose,” and she decides that Deborah was a sick rose. Lily’s decision to wear the whale pin reflects her attempts to make an uneasy peace with her mother.

The most obvious symbols in The Secret Life of Bees are the bees themselves. Kidd makes it clear from the start that she’s drawing an analogy between the behavior of bees and the behavior of human beings: every chapter begins with an epigraph from a book about bees, and we gradually realize that each one has some thematic significance for the events of that chapter.

"A moving first novel Lily is an authentic and winning character and her story is compellingly told. The bees presage her journey toward self-acceptance, faith /5(K).

For every important action Lily takes in the novel, bees and their products play a role: from realizing she is in love with Zach (when she licks honey off his finger) to realizing she loves August (when she lets the bees rest on her body).

Lily. As we have already noted, the book frequently uses bees or bee imagery to suggest the power of mostly or entirely female groups.

'Egg laying is the main thing, Lily. She's the mother of every bee in the hive, and they all depend on her to keep it going. The best thing to come out of reading this book is finding the following: The Bees is really about a beehive where the bees have been anthropomorphized and talk and shit.

Amazing that that bit of info seems to be a spoiler for some. Heck, that was the whole reason I wanted to read it - an unusual premise is a quick sell for me/5. Inside the jail, the police officers force Lily and Rosaleen to sit in a cell.

Draping the hives is less about the bees and more of a reminder to the living that life leads to death, which gives way to rebirth.

August speaks to Lily of Aristaeus and of the early Christians and their beliefs in rebirth.
