The lost community of Apistown trades honey with the outside world to survive. But its children do not know where the honored honey comes from—nor about the guilt the town must bear

One night, Amelia, Isaac, and Cassie dream of a great tree. Honey seeps through the tree’s fruit and falls to waiting vessels below.

Could this be Apistown’s lifeblood? Is such a tree possible?

The three friends set out to learn the truth. And their parents, guided by three mysterious matrons, must choose: protect their children or keep faith with the community.

The truth will transform them all.
