Mia West has her entire life planned out: a cottage in Seattle, baking at The Butter Emporium, and her boyfriend Ethan by her side. Alone and adrift when her plans crumble, she decides to find new meaning in her life by helping those in need. Guided by recurring dreams about honeybees, Mia joins her housemate Rosie on an around-the-world humanitarian trip funded by a reclusive billionaire, Lars Lindstrom. As an eclectic group embarks on the trip from the slums of Mumbai to a Hungarian border camp during the refugee crisis, Mia's idealistic vision is challenged and circumstances force her to choose between the life she thought she wanted and the life she has built. -- adapted from back cover

The story was reminiscent of a Harlequin romance with a female heroin who tries to do good in a refugee camp while escaping a failed romantic relationship. She quickly becomes involved with a new guy in a chaotic environment. The ending seems a bit too predictable. A light summer read.

A wonderful summer read that touches on some universal truths. It is hard to know how to use our gifts and make a difference in the world. Aristotle once said, " Where your talents and the needs of the world cross, there lies your vocation." As Mia pursues her dream of making a changing the world, she discovers much about herself and looks firsthand on the pain and suffering in India slums and a Hungarian refugee camp. The work Mia does on her humanitarian trip causes us all of us to reflect on how we are pursuing charity and whether we are contributing in a meaningful way. The bee motif and guidance Mia receives are most surely a reminder of God's faithfulness. This book really encouraged me!
