The History of Bees - Maja Lunde

Product Description(
This dazzling and ambitious literary debut follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees—and to their children and one another—against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis.
England, 1852. William is a biologist and seed merchant, who sets out to build a new type of beehive—one that will give both him and his children honor and fame.
United States, 2007. George is a beekeeper fighting 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, she sets out on a grueling journey to find out what happened to him.

MY THOUGHTS:  I don't usually like books written this way.  With three different stories.  But this one hooked me on the first page.  These stories with  history, agony, and heartbreaking are stories that  combine to make a statement about what's going to happen, starting with the past, going to the present and then to the future.  It's actually a really scary thought if you think about it.  These tiny creatures that fly around collecting pollen so they can make honey to feed their young, we all depend on them to keep the world going!  I give  this book 5......
