They end up living with a family who make and sell honey with a black holy Mary as there symbol on their honey pots. Lily recognises this from one of her mother's possessions and forms new identities for her and Rosaleen, her housekeeper.
It is set in the 60s in America where racism is a huge factor as black people begin to register to vote.
The descriptions, characters and plot make this book a honey sweet reading treat! ( see what I did there!)
It is a compelling story full of mystery, longing and love.
I found it easy to read with it being so sincere and honest. Maybe a little unrealistic but all the same a brilliant book.
I entirely recommend reading it.
