The Murmur of Bees - Sofia Segovia - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Murmur of Bees:

Simonopio's story of saving the son of Morales.

My favorite Sofia Segovia quote from the book:

"Life waits for none and death takes us all."

Questions to ponder while reading The Murmur of Bees:

Do you need to speak?

What is nobility?

My review of the book:

A strangely compelling story.

Beautiful imagery.

A peek into the lives affected by the Mexican Revolution.
