In Let the bees rest, Liz Holland delivers a fresh perspective as she moves through the resistance and ultimate undoing of her religious upbringing. Rich imagery demands that the reader be present to witness the slow decline of her father, wild curiosity in search of the divine, and a deeper understanding of an embattled relationship with her mother. Let the bees rest is an enduring work of art that honors the unseen struggle in embracing queerness and one’s authentic self.
