Happy Fourth of July/ Happy Birthday to Lily from The Secret Life of Bees

Hello everyone! I hope your Fourth of July is wonderful. But, if your not from America and don’t celebrate the Fourth of July then happy Saturday. I also wanted to say happy birthday to Lily from the Secret Life of Bees. If you don’t know what the Secret Life of Bees is about then keep reading for a summary.

The Secret Life of Bees is about a girl named Lily, who lives in South Carolina in the 1960’s. So theres a lot of segregation at this point. Lily’s mother died ten years ago when Lily was four. This left Lily to live with an abusive father on a peach farm were Lily sells her fathers peaches. Lily has always wanted to know about her mother but her father (who she calls T. Ray) refuses to tell her anything. One time Lily found some of her mothers things in the attic, and since then she has held on to them dearly without T.Ray knowing. Along with her mothers things Lily found a picture of a black Mary, and on the back of the picture said Tibourn S,C. So Lily sets out to Tibourn after everything hits the fan, and is determined to learn about her mother.


Hows life?
