Book Description

 ‘A great book. Painstakingly researched, but humorous, sensitive and full of wisdom.' Chris Stewart, author of driving over lemons 'beekeeping builds from Lark to revelation in this carefully observed story of midlife friendship. Filled with humour and surprising insight, liquid gold is as richly rewarding as its namesake. Highly recommended.' - Thor Hanson, author of buzz: the nature and necessity of bees after a chance meeting in the pub, Roger morgan-grenville and his friend Duncan decide to take up beekeeping. Their enthusiasm matched only by their ignorance, they are bewitched into an arcane world of unexpected challenges. Coping with many setbacks along the way, they manage to create a colony of beehives, finishing two years later with more Honey than anyone knows what to do with. By standing back from their normal lives and working with the cycle of the seasons, they emerge with a new-found understanding of nature and a respect for the Honeybee and the threats it faces. Wryly humorous and surprisingly moving, liquid gold is the story of a friendship between two unlikely men at very different stages of their lives. It is also an uplifting account of the authors own midlife journey: coming to terms with an empty nest, getting older, looking for something new.
