The Honey Queen By Cathy Kelly
26th September 2013 |Paperback | £7.99
To discover the sweetest things in life, you sometimes have to lose your way…
It’s easy to fall in love with the beautiful town of Redstone – the locals wave and chat to each other, and the shops and cafés are full of cheerful hustle and bustle. Amidst all this activity, two women tell themselves they are getting on just fine.
Frankie’s boundless energy and optimism usually help her to take everything in her stride, but now she is trying to cope with a husband who has lost his job, a house with an overgrown garden, and the unwelcome arrival of the menopause, which has kicked in – full throttle.
Peggy has always been a restless spirit, but now, focused and approaching thirty, she has opened her own knitting shop on the town’s high street. It is a dream come true, yet she still feels adrift.
When Australian-raised Lillie finally makes it back home to Ireland, she is drawn right into the heart of Redstone’s close-knit community, and all her hard-earned wisdom will soon be called into play as she helps her new-found friends and family navigate unchartered territory...
Claire's Review 4 of 5 Stars
The Honey Queen is a nicely paced read. There are a few different storylines running next to each other that also link in to each other, but its well written so it's not confusing, which at first was a worry for me when i began reading. The characters are wonderful and you really get pulled in to each of their storylines and care for them, they feel very familiar like visiting old friends!
This was a very enjoyable read which tackled some important issues faced in real life. The characters feel real and are not sugar-coated.
