Book Synopsis

A disillusioned honeybee from the safe, regulated confines of a garden crashlands in the wilderness territory of a brutal dictator - a wolf spider - and has to survive on the ground whilst trying to regain the power of flight.

Two neighbouring spheres of influence - the garden and the wilderness - are populated by invertebrates and flowers. Two themes are explored in this social allegory - conformity at an individual level, and the dynamics of global conflict - both of which impact heavily upon the lives of the protagonists. The story begins in spring with the trials and tribulations of the honeybee, encountering various exotic and ferocious creatures before resolving the affliction which prevents her from flying. In summer, the honeybee becomes involved in global politics as conflict between the garden and the wilderness looms.
