A Recipe for Bees reminded me a lot of the novel Vinegar Hill. In both stories, a wife is living in a dark, unpleasant home environment. In A Recipe for Bees, Augusta, an older lady, approaching the end of her life, reflects back upon her childhood and her marriage. Her mother dies at a young age, leaving her alone with an unaffectionate father. When she meets Karl and they become married, Augusta moves from one unaffectionate household to another. Living at Karl's father's farm, Augusta is only subject to more withholding of affection and is living a dark and depressing life. The rest of the novel delves into Augusta's search for independence and what she chooses to make of her life. The story takes us down journeys of the ups and downs of marriage, being a misfit in the community, and mother/daughter relationships. The main problem reading it, is that I couldn't find it in me to like the main character, Augusta. I also felt that the story left the reader with a depressed feeling of what marriage is like. The weaving of the "bee" theme added a nice touch to the story, but if you're looking for a great read with a "bee" them, try The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. The writing in A Recipe for Bees was good, but I felt the story was lacking something~

I loved the book. It was a long journey but so worth it. A beaufiful story of complex relationships, touching and tragic. but uplifting as well. Just as we would want life to be. The bonus was learning of the tenacious nature of bees and bee keeping. Of farm life and love. The hardscrabble life of a marriage and how love grows in dedication and acceptance. Tender at it's heart, this is a story you will remember for a long time.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am a fan of transitioning from past to present in a story and this author does a great job. It was one of those books that I wanted to keep reading - but also didn't because I didn't want it to be done. This is one of the few books that I will probably read again.

It started out quite slowly and it was a little confusing at first. A story about a woman and her relationships in the present and the past and reconciliation towards the end of her life.

Wonderful story woven with current happenings and flashbacks. Love and disappointment and acceptance in later life interlaced with beekeeping as a metaphor. Loved it!

I like the book overall; however, it was slow moving at time.....

I simply loved this book. Great story telling! Great characters, descriptive writing. This is one I might have skipped on my own but a friend highly recommended it to me and now I am doing the same.
