Part memoir, part nature journal. This is a lovely blend of personal narrative, research into the history of beekeeping, and dedicated observation. Jukes has just moved to Oxford and a new job, and there are many parallels and observations of community, through the coming together of a new hive, and those of the human experience. As she takes us through a year of her hive, we witness her growing confidence as a beekeeper, but also as a part of her new environment. It’s an excellent exploration of relationships, especially those between humans and the wild, and I loved it. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
