It’s been more than a decade since the world has come undone, and Sasha Severn has returned to her childhood home with one goal in mind – find the research her father, the infamous Last Beekeeper, hid before he was incarcerated.
There Sasha is confronted with a group of squatters, who have claimed the quiet, idyllic farm as a way to escape the horrific conditions of state housing. While she feels threatened by their presence at first, the friends soon become her newfound family, offering what she hasn’t felt since her father was imprisoned: security and hope.
But just as she begins to find her footing, Sasha witnesses the impossible. She sees a honeybee, presumed extinct, in the wild. Sasha knows that people who claim to have seen a bee are silenced. Will she fight for the truth she has been searching for her whole life, even if it means risking the lives of those she loves?
The Last Beekeeper is a celebration of found family, an exploration of truth versus power, and the triumph of hope in the face of despair. Sasha’s journey is a meditation on forgiveness and redemption and a reminder to cherish the beauty that exists in this fragile world.
