Josephine Moon has cleverly written a timely story that complements the current media hype surrounding that most shocking of crimes; child molestation, concealed beneath the wings of the great Catholic Church, here in Australia.<br>She has added to this a sweet array of characters, all intertwined with their everyday, ordinary lives and she masterfully brings them together in such a way that we feel we are part of them, or they are part of our lives too.<br>”The Beekeeper’s Secret” is easy to read and the characters are real yet all carry their own burden of guilt that they have to contend with and this is reflected in the bee hives and the behavioral antics of the tenant bees; all overseen by Maria, who has her own issues that go back to her days as a nun.<br>But once Maria meets her loving niece Tansy, all family issues come to the fore and are redistributed and shared in a way that only families can do.<br>A shocking and disturbing issue is dealt with through the eyes of loyalty and love and makes this a good, fluid read, while it reminds us that family, truth and love are most sacred.

Hi, I have always loved stories, from Dr Suess to Enid Blyton, to Roald Dahl, as a child and on to Jane Austen as a teen and adult. I love writing stories and poems too. I think writing and reading fantasy is a great way to travel, in your head and visit places you might never otherwise see. they can be as wonderful as you want to make them. I kept writing as a hobby all through my teen years and then as an adult, married with children ,I wrote stories for my family and read them out aloud as we traveled on long car trips in foreign countries. "The Diary of Arnmore" is one of these stories, followed closely by "Hungry Mr Croc." Two very different stories, aimed at completely different age groups, but both definately worth a read!
