Giveaway now closed…. Our winner on August 7 was WANDA!!!!!!
Thanks everyone for playing 😉
It’s Summer. My favorite season! In honor of Summer and all the movies recently that have come from books, I offer this weeks Freebie Friday as:
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Kidd Monk.
Set in South Carolina in 1964, 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, Lily flees with Rosaleen, her caregiver and only friend, to a South Carolina town that holds the secret to her mother’s past. Taken in by the intelligent and independent Boatwright sisters, Lily finds solace in their mesmerizing world of beekeeping.
I recently learned at a festival where they had bees displayed in hives working the honey like nobody’s “beesness” (lol) that a bee in their lifetime will only produce one twelfth of a teaspoon of honey. Not a typo. That’s it.
So now knowing this…. here is how you can enter to win this great book! AND to sweeten the pot (LOL I am on a roll today!) I will add a jar of honey to this giveaway.
