The Honey Bus

Meredith May was five years old when her parents divorced and she suddenly found herself in the care of her grandfather, an eccentric beekeeper who made honey in a rusty old military bus in the yard. She was drawn to the art of beekeeping as an escape from her troubled reality. Her mother had receded into a volatile cycle of madness and despair and spent most days locked away in the bedroom. The bees became a guiding force in May’s life, teaching her about family and community, loyalty and survival.
