The Honey Farm

Plagues. Harriet Alida Lye’s debut novel is titled, The Honey Farm. Things are not as they appear on the farm where protagonist Silvia arrives to spend the summer doing manual labor in exchange for room, board and a chance to write. Lye’s finely written prose will delight those readers who enjoy literary fiction. Close readers will revel in the many levels of meaning involving themes of faith, nature, power and control. Silvia seems to have arrived on the set of a bible scene when a series of plagues hit the farm: drought, frogs, lice, water turning red. Silvia finds all kinds of coming of age experiences on the farm, and Lye slowly unveils a story that falls hard by the end. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Honey Farm from amazon.com.
