Editorial Reviews


‘Liquid Gold is a book that ignites joy and warmth through a layered and honest appraisal of bee-keeping. Roger Morgan-Grenville deftly brings to the fore the fascinating life of bees but he also presents in touching and amusing anecdotes the mind-bending complexities and frustrations of getting honey from them. But like any well-told story from time immemorial, he weaves throughout a silken thread, a personal narrative that is at once self-effacing, honest and very human. In this book you will not only meet the wonder of bees but the human behind the words.’ -- Mary Colwell, Mary Colwell, author of Curlew Moon

'Beekeeping builds from lark to revelation in this carefully observed story of midlife friendship. Filled with humor and surprising insight, Liquid Gold is as richly rewarding as its namesake. Highly recommended.' -- Thor Hanson, author of Buzz, Thor Hanson, author of Buzz

'[B]oth humorous and emotionally affecting... Morgan-Grenville’s wry and thoughtful tale demonstrates why an item many take for granted should, in fact, be regarded as liquid gold.' -- Publishers Weekly, Publishers Weekly

Roger Morgan-Grenville was a soldier in the British Army Royal Green Jackets from 1978 to 1986. After leaving the army he ran a small company importing kitchenware. In 2007–08, he helped to set up the charity Help for Heroes.
