The Bee Keeper's Daughter

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The story begins with a young Russian peasant named Maria. Through a series of tragic events, she must travel North on the Volga river to find safety with relatives in a distant city. Along the way she discovers romance, adventure, friendship and the beginnings of her womanhood. 

The world beyond Maria's simple farm life in Rostov is fraught with peril. She must evade determined soldiers, seeking her capture while daring to trust complete strangers for help. Travel with Maria as she uses every skill acquired in her childhood and every lesson learned from her Mother, the town school teacher. Be there when her eyes are opened to the ways of the world, learning everything in a hurried pace of danger, intrigue and excitement. 

The story unfolds within the backdrop of Russian history and folklore. Maria's story will wrap you in a world of sensory imagination that takes you away in the first chapter and holds you till the last word is read. Only to discover the story of Maria is far greater than ever imagined, she is a legend in the making, guided to her destiny. 

The Beekeepers Daughter is volume one of five in the medieval saga, The Kingdom of Meridian.

Romance Addict in Denial

Let me start by saying that I am not a person to read medieval books or novels, but this one captured my attention from the very beginning. The content of the story will keep you reading for hours. In my opinion, it is a well-balanced novel of romance, adventure, history, passion and eroticism. The author has a way of immersing you so deep into the scenes that you’ll feel as if you are there, escaping capture, riding in the ship, and watching those intense encounters. The pace of events is just right, and I love how the author played with my expectations, surprising me with a twist just as I thought I had it all figured out. I also enjoyed how Mr. Serei developed the characters in the story; it was as if I was living their life, seeing through their eyes and feeling their emotions as my own. I would recommend this book to anyone. It will take you away on an amazing adventure and drive your imagination to a far away place and time. I cannot wait for the second book; please write faster!
