My book of the month: December

I enjoy Josephine Moon's stories. They are uplifting and show us that all families have complexities and secrets. The Beekeeper's Secret has an added bonus: the joy of a character's relationship with nature.

The beekeeper character is ex-nun Maria, who has tucked herself away on a secluded mountain to serve what she sees as penance for past events she experienced in the Catholic Church. Her relationship with the bees she cultivates is personal and insightful and I loved the interaction they had.

A happy ending? Of course. That's the pleasure of this novel; it kept me engaged and left me feeling satisfied.
