The author narrates this work in a slow, warm, mellifluous tone that, were this a scientific treatise on the native bees of the British Isles, would be sleep inducing at best. But listeners will quickly discern that this is a love story that begins with bees in the backyard and spreads to a wide array of native fauna and flora. One does not have to be a trained naturalist to appreciate the author's point about the critical need for preserving native species, especially pollinators, which are at the heart of our ecosystem. Her lyrical prose translates well to audio and comes across as more of a freestyle tone poem than a chronicle of her growing awareness of the natural world around her. R.C.G.
