Consumer Critique: The Beekeeper's Daughter

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

THE BEEKEEPER’S DAUGHTER is a heart wrenching new romance from #1 international bestseller Santa Montefiore – her first set in the United States! This mother-daughter tale spans two continents across four decades, and weaves together parallel love stories and family secrets.

Grace Hamblin is growing up in 1930s England on the beautiful estate of the Marquess and Marchioness of Penselwood. She knows her place as the beekeeper's daughter. When her father dies, she marries her childhood friend Freddie and they take over her father's duties. But there is another man who she just can’t shake from her thoughts.

Forty years later in Massachusetts, Grace’s daughter Trixie Valentine is in love wild and romantic band member Jasper Duncliffe. His brother dies and he returns home to England, promising to come back for Trixie one day, if only she will wait for him. Grace thinks that Trixie is surely abandoned and tries to support her daughter, but Trixie brushes off her mother’s advice and comfort. She is confident that Jasper’s love for her was real.

This was a book that really showcases the parallels that often happen between generations. It was a realistic portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship, with threads that are expertly tied together. It would make a great summer read.
