Book and Film Challenge Update

The seventeenth Book I have completed is The Languages of Bees by Laurie R. King. This Is a book about an older Sherlock Holmes and his mu8ch younger wife Mary Russell. Part of the book involves the destruction of a hive of bees that Holmes keeps. Apparently the hive has gone mad and swarmed and died. The main plot of the story revolves around Holmes son by a former lover that he has recently been reunited with. The son is now married with a wife and child and is active in the Bohemian art movement. The wife is involved in religious movements and is involved with a charlatan religious leader. The wife disappears and is later found dead. Homes and Mary go after this charlatan leader and it is a race to the Oknery Islands to pervent a muder-sacrifice. Seventeen down, 83 to go.


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
