Ambientada en Carolina del Sur en 1964, La vida secreta de las abejas es la historia de Lily Owens, cuya vida ha sido formada alrededor del recuerdo confuso de la tarde en que su madre fue asesinada. Cuando Rosaleen, la bravIa madre postiza negra de Lily, insulta a tres de las personas mAs racistas del pueblo, Lily decide que ambas deben ser libres. Ellas escapan a TiburOn, Carolina del Sur, un pueblo que guarda el secreto del pasado de su madre. Alojadas por un excEntrico trIo de hermanas negras apicultoras, Lily es introducida al fascinante mundo de las abejas y la miel, y a la Virgen Negra. Esta es una novela notable sobre el poder divino femenino, una historia que las mujeres compartirAn y pasarAn a sus hijas por generaciones.
