What’s with the summary here. This had nothing what to do with this book!

Simple words with huge meaning. The tone of the book is a laid back casual conversations about observing nature. The underlining truth is the story is about a middle age woman who discovers a place in the world where she can be free to be who she wants to be. She is divorced and runs a small business as a beekeeper in the Ozarks. The simple way she examines the insects, wild animals and even human nature takes on the quality of a deep thinker. You become lost in her thoughts of why things happen they way they do. She questions the termites that come up through the floor boards to her neighbor across the river with his turkey call. If you want to read about how life really is in the Ozarks then you will not be disappointed. I too love the Ozarks and feel for those city-dwellers who want "simple-lives". But as Hubbell points out "life is as complicated as the person living it."
