Santa Montefiore:The Beekeepers Daughter

Multi-generational feel-good love story
This is multigenerational feel-good love story over two generations. Grace Valentine grows up in England in the late 1930's living on the beautiful estate of the Marquess and Marchioness of Penselwood. She has a crush on the son of the Lord but knows her place in society as the daughter of the Lord's beekeeper. The onset of WWII turns her life around but she never forgets her first love.

Moving forward to the 1970's Grace is living in a small community in the US which is shocked when her daughter Trixie spends a weekend with her aspiring rock-star lover. Grace soon finds that Trixie's situation with an unsuitable man has similarities to her situation at the same age. It is a frequently very touching story of a mother and daughter both searching for love and happiness in a similar way who are unaware of the secrets that bind them. To solve them they must confront the current and the past, and unravel the lies told long ago.

I have always loved Santa Montefiore's easy reading page-turning style, great characters and servings of romance. This is probably her best book which I strongly recommend to anyone who likes these kind of books.

My thanks to The Reading Room and the publisher for a copy of this book.
