Description - Wasp Season - Large Print by Jennifer Scoullar
You'll never see a wasp in the same way again ...
When Beth's marriage ends, she's determined to build a new life in the country for herself and her children. A quiet life lived closer to nature. She thinks she's achieved the impossible - a civilised separation, a happy home and a cordial relationship with her estranged husband, Mark. There's even the promise of new love on the horizon. But when Mark tries to change the rules, Beth's peaceful world is turned upside down.Disturbingly, she also discovers that European wasps have invaded her garden. Beth's obsession with them and their queen holds up a distorted mirror to the human drama. As the chaos in Beth's life gathers momentum, connections between the two worlds come sharply into focus. The lives of Beth and the others are neither separate to, nor safe from, the natural world.
AUTHOR'S NOTEIn this series of Wild Australia Stories I tell tales of the people, wildlife and land that I love. But there is more to wild Australia than brumbies, dingoes, dolphins and the magnificent outback. As a passionate conservationist and amateur naturalist, I'm interested in all aspects of nature. One thing I've learned is that it's not always about the big things. Little creatures have a surprising impact on our lives. If you're squeamish about insects, look away now. If you're fascinated by the Australian bush and the way all creatures great and small are connected, then Beth's story is for you.
