The Georgian Beekeeper
Drawn over the course of a century of traumatic political and social upheavals, The Georgian Beekeeper is a tribute to love, perseverance, and the indomitability of the human spirit. Spanning four generations beginning in Tsarist times, through the turbulent 20th century in which the Georgian people survived two world wars, revolution, political purges, and with the culmination of the 2008 Five-Day War with Russia, this is a story of one Georgian family and how they managed to prosper during these historically challenging times. Seen through the eyes of the family Matriarch, Ksenia Kolumbegovi, The Georgian Beekeeper traces her family's life experiences through this tumultuous period in world history. The story will give you full appreciation of the trials and tribulations of living under Soviet dominance, will provide you with an understanding of the strength and resiliency of the Georgian people, and bring you joy with the illumination of the unconquerable strength of love and human perseverance.
