I wish you Good Reading.
In Praise of the Bees by Kristin Gleeson
It takes a special talent to sweep a reader comfortably into an era of which they have little, if any knowledge. Kristin Gleeson possesses this talent in her novel set in 590 A.D. in Ireland. Full of rich characters, the setting settles in around a story that could be of any time and place, but is all the better for being where it is. The Irish Gaelic words scattered throughout the text bring the reader further and further into the story. And finally, the author’s few words of explanation at the end make you wish to visit Ireland and see the wonders for yourself.
