This is a story about love – romantic love between two young adults; the love mothers have for their children and the lengths they will go to to protect them; love of the great outdoors as well as love, more specifically, of bees! It’s also a story about the difference between secrets and privacy. About what we really know about our children and what they know about us. What we chose to share and what we chose to keep to ourselves. There’s a tragedy, there’s a court room battle and in true Jodi Picoult style, there’s a controversial twist which will challenge any preconceived ideas you may have on gender and identity…plus you’ll learn a lot about bees!

Olivia fled her abusive marriage to return to her hometown and take over the family beekeeping business when her son Asher was six. Now, impossibly, her baby is six feet tall and in his last year of high school, a kind, good-looking, popular ice hockey star with a tiny sprite of a new girlfriend.
Lily also knows what it feels like to start over – when she and her mother relocated to New Hampshire it was all about a fresh start. She and Asher couldn’t help falling for each other, and Lily feels happy for the first time. But can she trust him completely?
Then Olivia gets a phone call – Lily is dead, and Asher is arrested on a charge of murder. As the case against him unfolds, she realises he has hidden more than he’s shared with her. And Olivia knows firsthand that the secrets we keep reflect the past we want to leave behind – and that we rarely know the people we love well as we think we do.
Heart-pounding and heartbreaking. This collaboration between two best-selling authors seamlessly weaves together Olivia and Lily’s journeys, creating a provocative exploration of the strength that love and acceptance require – The Washington Post
Jodi Picoult is that rare, one-in-a-million writer whose books both squeeze your heart and expand your mind. – Emily Henry
