In a romantic adventure across the globe, The Enlightenment of Bees beautifully explores what it means to find the sweet spot in life where our greatest passions meet the world's greatest need. "I combed through the pages with delight. This book is going to cause a real buzz." --Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author Sometimes a shattered dream leads to an amazing journey.  At twenty-six, apprentice baker Mia West has her entire life planned out: a Craftsman cottage in Seattle, a job baking at The Butter Emporium, and her first love--her boyfriend, Ethan--by her side. But when Ethan declares he "needs some space," Mia's carefully planned future crumbles.  Feeling adrift, Mia joins her vivacious housemate Rosie on a humanitarian trip around the world funded by a reclusive billionaire. Along with a famous grunge rock star, a Rwandan immigrant, and an unsettlingly attractive Hawaiian urban farmer named Kai, Mia and Rosie embark on the adventure of a lifetime. From the slums of Mumbai to a Hungarian border camp during the refugee crisis, Mia's heart is challenged and changed in astonishing ways--ways she never could have imagined. As she grapples with how to make a difference in a complicated world, Mia realizes she must choose between the life she thought she wanted and the life unfolding before her.… (mais)

Hollywood style humanizarian help. The millioner was a bit over the top with his „issue“ ( )

4.5 Stars! I enjoyed so much about this book. I felt connected to the characters, especially Mia, and I loved how it all unfolded. Mia took risks, she grew and changed but most importantly she was honest with herself along the way. ( )

Mia loves baking, but she wants to better the world and help people, and she is sure that she can’t do that by baking. She is also expecting her long-time boyfriend to propose, and when he just can’t bring himself to do that, despite having the ring in his hand, they break up. At loose ends, she joins her best friend on a humanitarian adventure. It’s really more than she bargained for, and now Mia must decide not only what her true passion is, but also what she is able to do. Mia’s character does develop and show growth in this novel, but my goodness, it takes her a long time! The main thrust of the story is not the romance but instead is one of helping those less fortunate. The author is definitely expounding her own beliefs in this tale. ( )

When she loses both her job and her boyfriend of six years, Mia West has to reevaluate what she wants for her future. She has always believed she should do “something more,” so she agrees to join her friend, Rosie, on a humanitarian trip around the world. Only, she has much more to learn about herself and her future than she knew.

Rachel Linden’s The Enlightenment of Bees is much more than its charming cover suggests. Of course, it is charming with its touches of humor, romance, and whimsy, but it also challenges readers to grapple with how to be in the world and if it’s possible to follow passions and make a difference. It’s an excellent story, and I definitely recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )
