The Hour of the Bees; Lindsay Eagar

Hour of the BeesHour of the Bees by Lindsay Eagar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What elevated this relatively obvious story about a girl coming to embrace her roots (moving from Carol to Carolina, for example) and develop healthy relationships with her half-sister and grandfather was the myth/story entwined in the everyday plot. At times it's a variation of Everlasting Tuck and at others it's a morality play, but it's always a wonderful insertion.
