Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hubbell is a slight woman, fiftyish, a former librarian, and now a beekeeper, living alone on a 100-acre farm in the Missouri Ozarks. With an unsatisfactory marriage behind her, she is determined to be independent, even to the extent of keeping her old trucks in running order and felling trees in her woodlot. In a series of perceptive essays, she describes the world around her with a fresh and discerning eye, reveling in the natural beauty of her mountain home and its wildlife. With her active and inquiring mind she is constantly asking questions: Why do the sawfly caterpillers follow the leader? How do opposums learn to play possum? Her delightful, witty book will appeal to all those who are intrigued by the natural world. Evelyn G. Callaway, California Native Plant Soc., Ridgecrest

Ruth Rendell never disappoints. Her writing is exquisite, filled with literary references that make me want to read everything she mentions. The entire Wexford series is literate, warm, and thought provoking. A detective with a brilliant mind and a healthy appetite.

And red herrings and no wheres and too long interviews and questioning and teen angst and silly clubs. We just had two preteens12 13 yr attempted stabbing arrested as adults now in children court but the leader already unfit/ insane to stand trial. this should have been a short story at best theme is being overworked and wexford has lost it in formatic plots
