THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES, Sue Monk Kidd Since I'm done with FRENCH WOMEN DON'T GET FAT, I'm already starting on a new book. (Since one of my '06 resolutions is to read more books.) I saw the review of this novel in a magazine last year, and the writer said it's quite a good read. About a motherless girl who finds the true meaning of family, and finds love in the most unexpected places. I've gotten through the first few chapters, and I don't think this book will disappoint.
