The Beekeeper’s Promise (by Fiona Valpy)…a story of strength and resilience in difficult times

I absolutely loved this book! I could not put it down…stayed up until 2 am one night and 1 am the next one to finish it. The characters were wonderful. They were well developed and the story was one that flowed easily. Sometimes books that go back and forth from the present to the past are hard to follow or keep up with which time you’re in. But the author did a fabulous job of making the transition easy. And the connection between the main characters in the two time periods was amazing.

Stories of Hitler’s invasion in France are so moving and this one did a great job of taking you back to that time period and helping you experience the horror, fear, strength, compassion, and need of the people who endured such horrific events. You get a glimpse into how simple people made a difference in the defeat of Germany. Very inspirational and encouraging.

I would definitely recommend this book! It is a journey through time and how the characters learn that they are strong and resilient…despite their trials.

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
