Lily becomes inculcated with the Boatwrights’ obsession for bee products. She learns songs about bees and honey, she eats honey at every meal, and she uses honey to clean herself. Lily instantly realizes such physical differences in her new honey-filled life. There seems to be parallelism between what honey does for Lily’s body and what beekeeping does for Lily’s soul. Lily’s confidence grows due to her skill in beekeeping, and she is happy with her new life in Tiburon and the pink house.
