The title of this novella speaks of the Beekeeper, but the spirit that seeps from these pages is that of labors, of life and of love, where the symbolism of the bee itself speaks starkly. Toggling back and forth between different worlds, the reader will be provoked to examine different realms, both physical and metaphysical, while enlightening one of times and troubles little known to most. The tales plotted within this novella have been woven deliberately to have the reader exploring perseverance through difficulty from more angles than one may have thought possible in 100 pages.
As you delve into the stories of those living through war-torn and politically turbulent times in nations thousands of miles away and decades apart, you’ll develop a sense of being with the characters that you encounter, and in the times that they live. Despite the propensity to convey the downtrodden and defeatist attitudes that could have prevailed through difficult times, the stories that rise from these pages speak to strength in self, in family, and in love, where the proudest displays of character shine brightly. In a world where we are faced with new seemingly unique challenges daily, we’re reminded throughout these pages that our challenges may not be as unusual as they seem, and that our own stories still can be. This read will inspire a renewed sense of conviction to “bee-like" labor for the things and the people that matter at the core, a determination to separate oneself from the ‘extra’ and appreciate the ‘essential’.
