A Honeybee Heart Has Five Openings
Entering her thirties, Helen Jukes feels trapped in an urban grind of office politics and temporary addresses, and realises something must change if she's to create a meaningful life. Then friends give her a colony of honeybees - according to folklore, bees freely given bring luck - and Helen embarks on her first year of beekeeping. But what does it mean to 'keep' wild creatures? In learning about the bees, what can she learn of herself? And can travelling inside the hive free her outside it? Helen finds that the very act of keeping seems to open up new perspectives, deepen friendships, and make her world come alive.
