Caring and good food save a veteran
20 June 2017 | by tabariSee all my reviews

I was raised reading Gene Stratton Porter novels. The Keeper of the Bees was always one of my favorites. So when I was flipping through free movies at Amazon, I had to check this out. The book was written in the early 20s, so the veteran of WWI who thought he only had 6 months to live would have likely been a younger man. I was so young when I first read the book the that major plot twist rather went right over my head. What struck me and has stayed with me is the way a man who languished in a hospital began to thrive when he reached the home of the Beekeeper. The fresh ocean air, the fresh tomatoes and good fresh food and even the orange juice. It was eating clean before that name for healthy eating was coined. I like that this was included in the plotting of the movie. So many books turned into movies lose what I think of as the best parts! And Little Scout was played amazingly in this movie. All in all I was happy to see it. Now if I could just find her book "Freckles" filmed and treated as well!
