Whenever I get asked which is your favourite book of all time. One book always comes to mind and that book is ‘ The secret life of the bees’ by Sue Monk Kidd. Years have passed from the time I read this book and to be honest I am scared to re-read it just because I fear I won’t feel the same emotions that I connect with this story. The book was written around the time when white people couldn’t mix together. Every chapter had a piece of poetry on the upcoming chapter and that poetry was more powerful than some of the chapters. One of the characters had a serious mental illness that I think it’s the thing that made me relate more to the book because I myself was passing through a hard time.
