About this deal

La hija del apicultor es un libro que nos mete entonces en tres historias de amor: Por un lado están la de Grace y Rufus y a su vez Grace y Freddie (guiño) ambos personajes masculinos son hermosos y bueno, no diré a quién queria yo al final, pero, también tenemos la historia de Trixie y Jasper y tuve que aceptar el destino que le dio la autora (es final es re feliz aclaro) Con Grace aprenderemos cómo se puede partir un corazón haciendo posible que palpite a dos ritmos diferentes, y que estos ritmos estén marcados a su vez por dos corazones diferentes. Y si, algunas lagrimaras derramé con ésta mujer. Now as Grace looked inside the hive, the bees were settling in for the night. The temperature had dropped and they were sleepy. She smiled fondly and allowed her memories to ebb and flow like a vast sea of images and emotions. Time with her bees was time to be herself again, and time to remember. She is caught between what she should do and where her heart is leading her. It won't be an easy road ahead. Burgess kindly set aside some time in her busy schedule to chat with us about how she’s carrying on her family’s work and helping to bring a better honey to the people of Pennsylvania. PA Eats: There is a strong link from The Beekeeper’s Daughter to your family’s honey business, right? How did you decide to branch out on your own?

What do you make of Big and her friendship with Grace? Does Big give Grace good advice? Discuss Big’s role in the lives of the Valentines. Recently she had begun to sink more often into her former life. It was as if with the passing of the years her regrets grew stronger and her attachment to her memories more desperate. For the last twenty-odd years she had thrown herself into motherhood, but Trixie was growing up and soon she would move away, and Grace would be left alone with Freddie and the fragile remains of their marriage. Well, I’m surprised,” said Belle quietly. “Though I know Grace has a difficult time with Trixie. But I really don’t believe Trixie would have disappeared for three days without telling her mother. Besides, Freddie would never have allowed it.” Or anyone of any importance at all? He claims to know everybody. He’s an old boaster, that’s all,” said Blythe. Weighed down by memories, unaware of the secrets that bind them, both mother and daughter are searching for lost love. To find what they are longing for they must confront the past, and unravel the lies told long ago. ( From the publisher.)This was a sweet "comfort" zone read for me. Love story, England, gardens, bees, blah, blah, blah. All the stuff that makes me happy. And it did make me happy except I didn't buy the ending. The author tried to sell us on the idea that Grace loved Freddie her whole life when clearly that wasn't the case. If she really did, why would she hold onto all those old letters from Rufus? and hide them so she could reread them in private?? It made no sense. Plus the sobbing when she discovered who Jasper was?? Definitely not an over & done with fling! 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. Only because she was spotted by Lucy. I’m sure she wouldn’t have told you if she thought she had got away with it. I’m afraid she’s a disgrace, my dear, and you should ground her for the rest of the holidays. In my day I would have been beaten for less.”

years after, Gracie’s daughter Trixie Valentine is also in love with a man but unexpected events split them apart.It was a lovely story about love, family and relationships, but it's also a bit of a tired cliche to put the poor worker with the rich aristocrat and moan about duty and class. I enjoyed the interactions between Grace and Rufus, but I wanted more depth. Grace writes to Freddie and Rufus while they are away during the Second World War.

This reading group guide for The Beekeeper’s Daughter includes an introduction, discussion questions, ideas for enhancing your book club, and a Q&A with author Santa Montefiore. The suggested questions are intended to help your reading group find new and interesting angles and topics for your discussion. We hope that these ideas will enrich your conversation and increase your enjoyment of the book. Reachable only by small plane or boat, the island of Tekanasset is cut off from the rest of the country, so that while the Industrial Revolution changed the face of America, it missed Tekanasset altogether, leaving the quaint, Quaker-­inspired buildings and cobbled streets as they had always been, and allowing the island to settle into a sleepy, wistful rhythm where old-fashioned values blended harmoniously with the traditional architecture.
