The music of bees : a novel / Eileen Garvin.

Garvin, Eileen, (author.).


Alice Holtzman, stuck in a dead-end job, is reeling from the unexpected death of her husband. Even the beloved honeybees she raises in her spare time aren't helping her with the panic attacks she suffers. During one attack she meets Jake-- a troubled, paraplegic teenager with the tallest mohawk in Hood River County. Charmed by Jake's sincere interest in her bees and seeking to rescue him from his toxic home life, Alice surprises herself by inviting Jake to her farm. Then there's Harry, who suffers from debilitating social anxiety and who is desperate for work. As an unexpected friendship blossoms among Alice, Jake, and Harry, a nefarious pesticide company moves to town, threatening the local honeybee population and illuminating deep-seated corruption in the community. -- adapted from jacket
