"Of Bees and Mists"

The Undercover Page Turners book club met tonight to discuss  the book, "Of Bees and Mists".  It is a fable that chronicles three generations of women under one family tree, a mythical town, spirits and spells, clairvoyance and prophets, witchcraft and demons.
We agreed we would not have picked this book if given a choice, but nonetheless, after you started reading, and put the book down to absorb what you read, there was always the urge to pick up and  read some more.  The author, Erick Setiawan, certainly knows how to spin a tale and keep one's interest. 
We had a lively discussion about life and how these families lived, died and survived.  It was, as the book cover promised, touching, truthful and memorable.
