Dorset, 1933:Grace Hamblin is growing up on a beautiful rural estate. The only child of the beekeeper, she knows her place and her future - until her father dies unexpectedly and leaves her bereft and alone. Alone, that is, except for the man she loves, whom she knows she can never have. Hannah Burgess: The Beekeeper’s Daughter started in 2010 when I saw high demand for local raw honey. We always sold our honey wholesale to other companies for them to bottle or use for baked products, but we never had our own private label. After many years of watching other companies bottle our product, I thought it would be a good idea to start our own brand. We have a farm with a honey house, and we produce a lot of honey; we’re the biggest commercial beekeeper in the state of PA, if not PA and NY. Producing the honey is all that that side of the business can handle. Bottling, labeling and marketing is a whole other side of the business. In the year 1933, Grace Hamblin is leading a blissful life among bees and nature in a rural estate with her only relation, her father. As the daughter of the beekeeper, she was pretty sure what she wanted to be in life until she fell in love with a man whom she can never have. Flowers often make appearances in your books. In The Beekeeper’s Daughter, Grace is an acclaimed landscape gardener. Are you? Do you enjoy gardens? Fast forward to 1973 and we meet Trixie, Grace's daughter. She meets a boy in a band and they fall in love, they are promising each other to be together forever.

Grace and Rufus’s affair doesn’t have a resolution. If Rufus could have one more chance to see Grace, what do you think he would say to her? Then the characters are introduced—each is singularly and fully developed along the way. Each characterization brings the reader deeper into the setting and the tale being told. The main characters, Anabel and Jevan, grow up together but grow apart then together again. Big wriggled in her chair like the nesting hen of her own description. “You go home now and have stern words with Trixie. Tell her she’s not to deceive you like that again. It’s important that you know where she is and who she’s with, for her safety as well as your peace of mind. You also tell her that she’s not to leave the island again for the rest of the summer and it’s nonnegotiable. You have to make it very clear, Grace. Can you do that?”


Evelyn scowled irritably. “No one is questioning her talent, Belle. It’s her mothering which is open to debate. Now, come on, who dealt?”

In The Beekeeper's Daughter, there were a number of major characters that Santa introduced to me. Even though the author switched the narrative between certain characters, I felt like Grace was the main character within this story. When Grace was first introduced to me, it was in the present day, and she entered the Crab Cove Golf Club with her good friend Big, and strolled past a bunch of gossiping, wealthy women. My first impressions of Grace were all made due to this sentence. We learn that Grace is dying from an inoperable brain tumor. Is the author drawing a connection between one’s health and avoiding the past? Is there a theme to each part of the book? Was this an effective way to tell the story? Why or why not? I like a little romance in a novel but cringe often in pure romance fiction. Cliches and instA-love stories make me nauseous and bore me to death. The BeeKeepers Daughter is refreshing and one of those very rare books that I may read again. When Grace is tending to her bees she often feels a presence. On her wedding day, Grace thinks she sees her mother. Where else do ghosts or spirits make an appearance in the novel? Discuss the importance of spirits in the novel.Oh, she’s a wonderful gardener,” Belle added emphatically. “The gardens of Tekanasset were all very ordinary before she arrived from England and transformed them with her wonderful taste and expertise.” Absolutely. It’s fun writing about women with character; after all, character is what drives my books. Characters have to be interesting, entertaining, and complex. The reader has to believe in them and they have to evolve throughout the story. Grace and Trixie gave me such pleasure. Readers, I would recommend this to you if you love it when authors cause the past and the present to collide, if you love hard-hitting powerful romances that make you bite your lip in frustration, if you love history and beautiful settings and scenery, if you love watching the worlds of separated societies come together because two people just can't help themselves... She is caught between what she should do and where her heart is leading her. It won't be an easy road ahead. She was educated at the Hanford School from the age of eight to twelve and then at the Sherborne School for Girls in Dorset where, in the sixth form, she became Head of her house (a role of responsibility similar to a prefect). She attended Exeter University where she read Spanish and Italian.
