In The Beekeeper's Daughter, readers time-travel to the late 1860s on the moors of England where Annabel Taylor lives with her father, a beekeeper. Annabel not only helps her father with the bees but is also following in her mother's footsteps Annabel is a witch who is not yet aware of her powers or how to use them!

Jevan Wenham is Annabel's lifelong friend the two of them tolerate no one else in their lives. Circumstances change when Jevan is sent to London to get an education. At that time, a wealthy and powerful landowner's son, Alex, takes a fancy to Annabel and wishes to marry her.

This is where lives really fall apart. Jevan ends up in a dungeon where he is sure to die unless Annabel marries Alex. This is also where Alex's father reveals a closely guarded family secret. The resulting tumult makes for a suspenseful ending.

While I felt that I had read this story before, I realized that was because it more or less followed other similar plots. I have to mention that the proofreading could have been better. It did get to be disconcerting.
