A secret love which has a whole town talking ... and a small boy very worried. Lydia Weekes is distraught at the break-up of her marriage. When her young son, Charlie, makes friends with the local doctor, Jean Markham, her life is turned upside down. Charlie tells his secrets to no one but the bees, but even he can't keep his mother's friendship to himself. The locals don't like things done differently. As Lydia and the doctor become closer, the rumours start to fly and threaten to shatter Charlie's world.

"Emotionally charged and compelling, Tell it to the Bees draws you into its world, a rich world of secrets and passion ... Fiona Shaw creates brilliant characters who stay with you long after the book is finished ... liberating and uplifting" -Jackie Kay "Shaw's writing is lovely: elegant, subtle and haunting" - The Times "Powerfully exposes the wrenches of prejudice. It is a tender and unlikely page-turner" - Financial Times "A memorable evocation of an era when homosexuality was a crime and abortion illegal ... a committed and thoughtful writer intent on using her gifts" - TLS
