Als wäre das nicht stressig genug, will Gretas Freund auch noch unbedingt die bröckelnde Beziehung retten. Als Greta nach einem Unfall plötzlich mit Gedächtnisverlust im Krankenhaus aufwacht, ist das ihre Chance, den Zwängen zu entkommen, die ihr ihre Familie auferlegt. Doch leichter gesagt als getan. Wie soll sie ihre eigenen Träume verwirklichen und gleichzeitig die Probleme ihrer Familie lösen? Greta schmiedet einen riskanten Plan. Sie ahnt nicht, welche Folgen dieser nicht nur für das Honeybee, sondern auch für ihr Herz haben wird ... Meinungen zum Buch: Ein Roman, der sehr tiefgründig und vielschichtig ist, der aber trotz aller Ernsthaftigkeit der Themen seine Leichtigkeit nicht verliert. (Rezensentin auf NetGalley) „Café Honeybee“ hat mich mit einer tiefgründigen und unvorhersehbaren Geschichte überrascht. Die besonderen, und so vielschichtigen Charaktere wuchsen mir ans Herz – und gerade mit den beiden Schwestern fühlte ich mich sehr verbunden. Die Atmosphäre war eher düster und ernst, und doch immer wieder mit Lichtblicken gespickt. Dieses Buch gibt Hoffnung und ein gutes Gefühl. Liebe ist nicht das zentrale Thema, sondern das Leben. (Buchblog iamjane) Café Honeybee ist ein rundum gelungener Roman über das Schicksal einer Familie mit all ihren Höhen und Tiefen und vor allem mit ihrer Art, Dingen aus dem Weg zu gehen, weil sie einfach zu sehr schmerzen. Die Autorin versteht es sehr gut, den Leser miteinzubeziehen und für die Dauer der Lektüre auf eine sehr emotionale Reise zu schicken. Absolute Leseempfehlung!(Rezensentin auf Amazon)

Marina Marchese's inspirational and practical story of learning to raise honeybees and creating a life she loves. "[An] engaging, delightfully informative work." - Publishers Weekly "Marchese has given us a lovely gift. Honeybee is an entertaining and useful primer for the novice and honeybee devotee alike." - Washington Times "Surpassing the predictable "how I changed careers" memoir of finding the good life, Marchese's informative guide is packed with facts about everything from pollination to harvesting, life cycles to historical lore, nutritional benefits to gourmet flavor combinations, medical applications to unusual varieties." - Booklist Marina Marchese fell in love with bees during a tour of a neighbor's honeybee hives. She quit her job, acquired her own bees, built her own hives, harvested honey, earned a certificate in apitherapy, studied wine tasting in order to transfer those skills to honey tasting, and eventually opened her own honey business. Today, Red Bee® Honey sells artisanal honey and honey-related products to shops and restaurants all over the country. More than an inspiring story of one woman's transformative relationship with honeybees (some of nature's most fascinating creatures), Honeybee is also bursting with information about all aspects of bees, beekeeping, and honey?including life inside the hive; the role of the queen, workers, and drones; pollination and its importance to sustaining all life; the culinary pleasures of honey; hiving and keeping honeybees; the ancient practice of apitherapy, or healing with honey, pollen, and bee venom; and much more. Recipes for food and personal care products appear throughout. Also included is an excellent, one-of-a-kind appendix that lists 75 different honey varietals, with information on provenance, tasting notes, and food-and-wine pairings.

Honeybees make decisions collectively--and democratically. Every year, faced with the life-or-death problem of choosing and traveling to a new home, honeybees stake everything on a process that includes collective fact-finding, vigorous debate, and consensus building. In fact, as world-renowned animal behaviorist Thomas Seeley reveals, these incredible insects have much to teach us when it comes to collective wisdom and effective decision making. A remarkable and richly illustrated account of scientific discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings together, for the first time, decades of Seeley's pioneering research to tell the amazing story of house hunting and democratic debate among the honeybees. In the late spring and early summer, as a bee colony becomes overcrowded, a third of the hive stays behind and rears a new queen, while a swarm of thousands departs with the old queen to produce a daughter colony. Seeley describes how these bees evaluate potential nest sites, advertise their discoveries to one another, engage in open deliberation, choose a final site, and navigate together--as a swirling cloud of bees--to their new home. Seeley investigates how evolution has honed the decision-making methods of honeybees over millions of years, and he considers similarities between the ways that bee swarms and primate brains process information. He concludes that what works well for bees can also work well for people: any decision-making group should consist of individuals with shared interests and mutual respect, a leader's influence should be minimized, debate should be relied upon, diverse solutions should be sought, and the majority should be counted on for a dependable resolution. An impressive exploration of animal behavior, Honeybee Democracy shows that decision-making groups, whether honeybee or human, can be smarter than even the smartest individuals in them.
