  Dead Bees and Dragonflies , 03/09/2005
Reviewer: Sheila
This haunting tale at times borders on the dark side. The father's anguish and the mother's weakness dramatically impacts the lives of their children. Interestingly, it is through the mother's love that she becomes strong. Are the children rescued? Is the evil overturned? You will have to decide. I did connect with the characters as they walked their paths and missed them when the story concluded.
