Tell it to the bees by Fiona Shaw( Book )

"Lydia Weekes is a beautiful young woman, although she hardly knows it. Her volatile husband all but ignores her and then he is gone completely, leaving her to support their son Charlie on her own with longer shifts at the local factory. A secretive schoolboy, Charlie is increasingly left to his own rich imagination - until he meets the town's new female GP, who encourages his interest in her beehives. This is the 1950s: when patients sit in front of a doctor's home fire in a carpeted waiting room, abortion is illegal and sexual freedom a source of scandal. When a wary friendship between Charlie's mother and Dr Jean Markham becomes a startling and renewing love affair, their secret passion invites suspicion from Lydia's vindictive sister-in-law, Pam, threatening the safety of her son."--Www.amazon.co.uk

What if following your heart takes you somewhere you just cannot bear to go? You must choose how you live your life. And as you are my son, William, I tell you that you, and you alone, must do the choosing. Like everyone, Meg has made choices over the course of her life; for the most part, she is proud of the decisions she made, but that does not mean she is not without regrets, not haunted by questions of what might have been -- What if her older brother had not gone missing when she was just a child? What if she had married for love, rather than duty? What if she told her son why it matters so much that he, unlike her, listens to his heart? Set in England and Africa, and opening during World War Two, this is a novel about family, about love, about duty; it is about the people we miss and the secrets we keep. Above all though, it is about the choices we make -- and those we do not make
