Hour Of The Bees by Lindsay Eagar . Review

When 12 year old Carol is told she is spending her summer holidays at her grandpa's ranch in the middle of the Mexican desert she was more then a little unhappy with the arrangement. While there the weather is incredibly hot, her grandpa incredibly prickly and there is very little to do except babysit this man she has never met before as he is sick and whether he likes it or not he will have to leave here . During their time together they begin to form a bond mostly thanks to his love of telling stories about bees and if they came back so would the water that this area badly needed. Thought provoking and heartbreaking we learn about Serge's past and how much his home and roots meant to him .
