Of Bees and Mist centers on Meridia, who, at age sixteen, tries to escape her alienating childhood and her mysterious parents by running away to marry a tenderhearted young man, whose family is harboring secrets of their own. There is a grave hidden in the garden. There are two sisters groomed from birth to despise each other. And there is Eva, the formidable matriarch whose grievances swarm the air in an army of bees. Setiawan takes readers through a tumultuous thirty-year journey of hope and heartbreak as Meridia's capacity for love, courage, and sanity is pushed to the brink.
