New York Times-bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank returns to the American South in this latest novel about friendship and love that is full of heart, humor, and rich description.
A woman wounded by her past comes to Sullivan's Island, South Carolina to find new meaning in life and to find herself. As she takes up a new hobby of beekeeping, she begins to come into her own and rebuild her life. When a new friend comes in and she finally allows for something more than just "friendship", everyone will realize that life could use a little taste of sweetness.
In what is sure to be another classic, Dorothea Benton Frank weaves a fun tale of self-discovery, love, and friendship with her signature charming wit, indelible poignancy, and hallmark themes.
This is one of my all time favorite authors, I read this book twice that is how much I loved the story, the quirky but lovable characters and the bees. I actually learned so much about bees in this book, what a bonus! Holly is the main character, while Leslie, Holly’s sister is a secondary character but has the most interesting tale to tell about her marriage. Then there is the Queen Bee herself their mother who is undeniably a force of nature and evolves so much in this book that I came to love her most of all. Then the neighbor, handsome, self centered and uses Holly to help him with his motherless boys Holly of course is blind to his using ways because she is hopelessly in love with him.
I loved the way that the story and characters evolved, while lighthearted this tale was thought provoking and covered a few important issues one being acceptance of each other. This story and characters will stay with me for a long time to come.
