THE HONEY BUS / Meredith May

Meredith and Matthew May are normal happy little kids until their parents’ divorce in the 70s. Their distraught mother transports her children and herself across the country and moves in with her mom and stepfather. Once they arrive, their mom, a bitter, depressed and unstable woman, takes to her bed and loses all interest in caring for her children. Their grandma resents having to care for her grandchildren and is often cruel. Fortunately, their step-grandpa is kind and creative. A beekeeper by profession, he helps Meredith survive in a hostile environment by sharing his passion for saving honey bees. A powerful memoir.                Val 11/6/2019
