The story was beautiful, I just thought it was a very slow start. I really enjoyed the information about the bees and bee keeping in general- it was fascinating.

But it took me forever to get through the first half, and I personally need a really captivating beginning to stop me from turning to my phone to doom scroll. ( )

I am impressed with Eileen Garvin and her debut novel, "The Music of Bees". I knew she had to be a beekeeper to be able to put such depth, understanding, and respect for the honeybees in her story. I learned so much about beekeeping, the hives, the jobs of the different bees; I felt like I was there with Alice as she was talking to Jake. The whole story is an allegory for life. Flawed people can shine when in an environment of love and mutual respect. We must all work together and hold each other up. Progress is made when we realize what we want out of life and who we need to be to accomplish our goals. This book is truly inspirational and a great world-builder. Although God is not mentioned in the book, those with a Christian worldview can see His hand at work. I am looking forward to the next book by this new author! ( )

Three strangers who need a new start in life are brought together through a bee farm. Alice is an older woman who has become a loner after the death of her husband and a series of heartbreaks. Harry is a young man with social anxiety who has made some very wrong decisions in his short life. Jake is a teen who life was upended when he became a paraplegic through a tragic accident.
I absolutely adored this book I found the gradual build up of the characters interesting and was fascinated by the amount of detail about the business of keeping bees. This is one of those books that are in turn fascinating, touching, and definitely gets you emotionally involved in the story. ( )

I was enthralled with this book. Not only is it a great, heartwarming story with wonderful characters, but I learned about honeybees and their remarkable contribution to our world's plants, flowers and trees. The book is about a 40 something widow who happens to be a beekeeper. Alice had lost her husband a few years before this book opened. She lives on a little piece of land in rural Oregon. Her family and ancestors had been orchardists until her father sold their orchard when Alice was a teenager. She has a full time job with the County, but her passion is bees. Alice isn't doing very well mentally after her husband's death and has become a bit of a recluse. She finds she needs help to run her aviary, so puts an ad in the local paper for a part-time handyman. Due to an unfortunate accident that Alice has in her truck, she meets a young man, Jake, who is 18 and is in a wheelchair after he had an accident a year ago. They form a friendship, and Jake moves in with Alice "for a time" until he gets himself sorted and it gives him a chance to get away from his unhappy home life. The pair gains another misfit when Harry Stokes applies for the part-time worker position. Harry has had many problems in his life, and he is just trying to make a new start in life. He suffers from sever social anxiety and very low self-confidence. It's amazing to watch this motley crew each come out of their shell, and they form a lifetime friendship. Interspersed in all this, we learn a lot about bees and their way of life. I found the whole book a delight, right up to the big blowup with a big chemical company who is trying to get the orchardists in the county to use their chemical for spraying their trees. Alice loses a few hives due to the pesticide, and joins the fight of other environmentalists and beekeepers in the area to try to put a stop to the chemical company being able to get a license for spraying in their county. All turns out great in the end, and this unusual group remain together and become like family to each other. It was a delightful and moving story of grief, love, friendship and bonding and one that I heartily recommend to anyone who enjoys this kind of wholesome fiction. And you might learn some very valuable things about our friends the honeybees. Thank you SweetReads for giving me the opportunity to read this book. ( )
