Haunted, Celia worships the dead and neglects the living until Brigit’s bees deliver atonement’s nectar and sting

Bee Candy

Author: Shullamuth Smith

Publisher: Shullamuth Smith

Category: Fiction: witch protagonist, pagan themes   Level: All

Adrian McKinty on BeeCandy
“…a gorgeous, heartfelt, bittersweet novel of love and grief and the possibility of redemption.”

Another Reviewer said:
"Somehow, someway, this book found its way to me just when I needed it. A close relative is going through a similar health issue to a character in the book, and while it doesn't really give tips or information on how to deal with it, it left me with a feeling of "this can be dealt with."
When I was writing this review, words like "strength, " "joy, " "grief, " "balance, " "peace, " "laughter, " "love, " and above all, "hope" came to my mind."

About Bee Candy
Mothers are supposed to protect their children; children are supposed to live forever, and when you suspect that your sister committed the most unthinkable act, the police are supposed to bring her to justice…

But when the autopsy declares natural causes, no one wants to accuse a grieving mother just because a couple of facts don’t add up.

How do you live with the suspicion? How do you live with the guilt?

Thirty-eight year old Celia, teacher and mean street escapee, manages by drowning herself in isolating routine. Each week she tends neglected graves at a local cemetery. While performing this ritual, Celia is caught by a sudden winter storm. She’s not the only one. Trish, a pregnant woman fleeing her own fears, lost and laboring, stumbles into Celia.

As the two women struggle through the wind and cold, the ghost of Celia’s niece—who has spent her restless death painting Trish’s toenails and ignoring the bees trying to guide her soul to the Otherworld—materializes in the swirling snow.

Fred, the cemetery’s sexton, scatters the ghost’s image before either woman is sure it was there, but that catalyst moment of recognition transforms them. Trish gives birth but struggles to be a mother; the ghost plays tricks both dangerous and fun, and Fred tempts Celia to swim in newer, sweeter pools.

Can Celia really float on friendship and desire, or will they just become new currents in the undertow of old grief and unanswered questions, dragging her down?

Author's Notes: About the Author

First novels always carry a bit of the author's heart, and Bee Candy certainly does mine. This is my paean to understanding death and dying, so that we may live out the fullest expression of ourselves.

My current projects include a nonfiction book about Angus Mohr and the community that feeds and thrives on local music, a horror story about mind controlling mushrooms, and a grown up retelling of Oisin's myth that takes place in a Boston bar. I grew up in Denver, and when I'm not tormenting students, I'm either hiking in the mountains, or at a show in some downtown dive.
