THE HONEY HARVEST

Melissa Holt, who is determined to help her father recover his will to live, learns valuable and life-changing lessons as a new beekeeper: she installs package bees, catches a swarm during a thunderstorm, and harvests her first miraculous honey crop. She also learns the bees have their own ways and can’t be controlled. She learns that, whereas she thought she moved home to help her father live, in fact, she is home to help him die. Melissa’s father rests beneath the most beautiful wind-blown white pine in all of Western Wisconsin—and the bees sing.
