A moving memoir...A fascinating and hopeful book of family, bees, and how 'even when [children] are overwhelmed with despair, nature has special ways to keep them safe.'-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Journalist May, a fifth-generation beekeeper in San Francisco, delivers a powerful account of growing up in 1970s California...May's chronicle of overcoming obstacles and forging ahead is moving and thoughtful.-- "Publishers Weekly"
If Meredith May's book was simply an ethology of bees I would devour every word; her prose is tender, thoughtful and transporting. But The Honey Bus is so much more - a memoir of aching loneliness, reckoning and redemption. Beautiful and brave.-- "Domenica Ruta, New York Times bestselling author" --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

The more time she spends with the bees, the more she learns of their roles and their family dynamics; and whilst she’s not experiencing it at home, she sees the stability, support and strength that a family should have. Her grandpa uses the bees as a medium, to discuss family issues, allowing Meredith to understand and cope with her mum.
After finishing this memoir, it’s fair to say I clearly knew very little about honey bees before I started it!
I was absolutely fascinated by how these bees ‘work a hive’; it’s a very sophisticated mini-metropolis with every bee having a role to play in their society, their dedication to everything they do is both enthralling to watch and incredibly humbling. We could learn a lot from bees.
This is a beautiful, moving and powerful read that will make any reader reflect on themselves and the relationships surrounding them. It’ll make you feel grateful for the stability you may have overlooked, and remind you to pay attention to those chores/jobs that people around you do, without you even appreciating how it keeps your home/your work/your life moving smoothly.
But the most important message is to understand how much we need bees, which is starting to be well heard thanks to the campaigns, however I’ve never before appreciated the severity and the detailed reasons of why the bees are in decline.
I adore books like this, there is nothing more satisfying than reading and learning at the same time. My heart grew from reading of Meredith’s childhood, and my brain stored even more compelling facts.
I have enjoyed it so much.
Waited for few days for it to-be published on Kindle and was not disappointed. I have always shied away when I saw bees but knew not to panic when I see one because it will makes it panic too.
Today while picking my herbs in the garden, I finally had the courage to looked at nectar bees and saw different sizes of them and kept staring to find out more. Made me emotional when I got to the end. Inspiring book and life of writer, looking fwd to her next one.
My dad woke up in the middle of the night to hear an interview on the World Service with the author - hearing this interview he knew it would be a book I'd really relate to and bought it as a gift.
I'm a beekeeper myself, who had an unconventional upbringing and not always the easiest starts in life. There was a lot in this book I could really relate to as the bees really did save her life and teach her about love. Its beautifully written and for anyone reading they'll learn some valueable lessons about the amazing life of bees. Her Grandad is identically described as my own! Its a lovely read.
