Fourteen-year-old Lily is on the run with her servant, Rosaleen, from her abusive father. Lily is haunted by her memories of her mother's death in a gun accident ten years earlier. They find their way to Tiburon, S.C., the headquarters of the Black Madonna Honey company, headed by three middle-aged black sisters, August, May, and June.
