In the spirit of Station Eleven and Never Let Me Go, this dazzling and ambitious literary debut follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees – and to their children and one another-against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis.

I thought this was a really interesting book, moving between three different times and locations, each centered around the role of bees. Fascinating, and scary at times, as it paints a future without bees. It was also an interesting insight into relationships between generations.
