Das Sigh (again)

I went into The Secret Life of Bees thinking that I would hate it. Stories about mother-daughter relationships are not exactly my favorite...however, even half-way through, I am incredibly intrigued and in love with this book.

I am at a part, where Lily falls in love with what she refers to as: impossibility. It's as if Sue Monk Kidd is writing about every single person I have ever fallen in love with. And then we reach the part where he tells her that he loves her too. Except, he is black, she is white, and it is 1964.

If even one of the two people that I currently want to spend the rest of my life with would just show the slightest return of feelings, I could probably move on. But right now the whole situation is just suck.
