United States, 2007. George is a beekeeper and fights an uphill battle against modern farming, but hopes that his son can be their salvation.
China, 2098. Tao hand paints pollen onto the fruit trees now that the bees have long since disappeared. When Tao’s young son is taken away by the authorities after a tragic accident—and is kept in the dark about his whereabouts and condition—she sets out on a grueling journey to find out what happened to him.
Haunting, illuminating and deftly written, the History of Bees joins three very different narratives of three generations of Beekeepers into one gripping and thought provoking story that is just as much about the powerful relationships between children and parents as it is about our very relationship to nature and humanity.

Basically, in this collection of short stories, Miss Marple and her friends were having a gathering of somekind. Each of them shared mysterious stories and the rest tried to guess what happened or who did it. As a reader, it’s just incredibly fun to make my own guess. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want to say that there were interesting dynamics between older and younger generation. And my favourite comment from Miss Marple on this subject is, ‘I hope you dear young people will never realise how very wicked the world is.’
It’s difficult to give 5 stars for a collect of short stories because even though they were generally absolutely entertaining, there were some stories that I liked more that others. But anyways, I’ll definitely recommend you to read if you like or want to get into short stories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
QUESTION. Have you read this? And do you have any recommendations for other short stories for me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
