Summary
Colony collapse disorder is overtaking the world, and as the bees disappear, so do the food supplies. In Finland, amateur beekeeper Orvo is hit with dual losses: two of his hives are empty, and his son, the ecoblogger Eero, has died. As Orvo deals with these tragedies, he makes an amazing discovery in his old barn: a doorway into another world. Trying to separate fact from fiction, Orvo learns that bees may be able to travel among universes and are also associated with the afterlife. With the truths about Eero's ecological values revealed and the planet's agricultural disasters looming, could this portal to another reality not only save Orvo but lead to his son's resurrection as well?
