Set in the gorgeous, sprawling countryside of the Pacific Northwest, Eileen Garvin's THE MUSIC OF BEES is about finding friendship in the most unlikely of places, and the families we choose for ourselves. Heartwarming, inspirational and redemptive, it is perfect for fans of THE L...ANGUAGE OF FLOWERS and Rachel Joyce. After the sudden death of her husband, Alice Holtzman finds herself a social pariah. Unfashionable, middle-aged, childless, and with only 120,000 honeybees for company. On the other side of town, Jake Stevenson and his enormous blue mohawk had a bright future in front of them studying music, all until an accident at a high school party leaves him with a broken spine. But when Alice crashes her pick-up truck, packed with thousands of restless honeybees, into Jake, knocking him from his wheelchair, it is the start of an unlikely of friendship that will pull both of them through the darkest stages of their grief. As these new friends begin to heal one another, Alice realises that Jake has a gift - not only is he a natural with her bees, but he can hear their buzzing as a form of music. . . All seems right with their world - until the buzzing stops. With a pesticide company threatening the local honeybee population, and everything Alice and Jake have worked for, these friends must unite to defend their bees.
