Bee season : a novel by Myla Goldberg( Book )

60 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 11 languages and held by 2,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable nine-year-old, expects never to fit into her gifted family: her autodidact father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism; her brother, Aaron, the vessel of his father's spiritual ambitions; and her brilliant but distant lawyer-mom, Miriam. But when Eliza sweeps her school and district spelling bees in quick succession, Saul takes it as a sign that she is destined for greatness. In this altered reality, Saul inducts her into his hallowed study and lavishes upon her the attention previously reserved for Aaron, who in his displacement embarks upon a lone quest for spiritual fulfillment. When Miriam's secret life triggers a familial explosion, it is Eliza who must order the chaos. Myla Goldberg's keen eye for detail brings Eliza's journey to three-dimensional life. As she rises from classroom obscurity to the blinding lights and outsized expectations of the National Bee, Eliza's small pains and large joys are finely wrought and deeply felt

She marries Henry Wickett, a shy medical student and the scion of a Boston Brahmin family. However, soon after their wedding, Henry abruptly quits medical school to create a mail-order patent medicine called Wickett's Remedy, and just as Lydia begins to adjust to her husband's new vocation, the infamous Spanish influenza epidemic of 1918 begins its deadly sweep across the world, irrevocably changing their lives.

Mientras Eliza Naumann se entrena para poner a prueba de forma definitiva su capacidad para deletrear en el exigente Concurso Nacional de Ortografía de Washington D.C., su familia empieza a desmoronarse de forma simultánea. Efectivamente, cuanto más difíciles son las palabras que Eliza aprende a deletrear, más parece deteriorarse la comunicación a su alrededor. Su padre Saúl, un profesor de estudios religiosos, ve algo trascendente en el mágico don de Eliza y empieza a enseñarle los secretos de la Cábala. Se empieza a obsesionar con sus victorias, viendo a través de ella el camino que conduce hacia Dios. Su madre Miriam ve en esa dedicación conjunta de Eliza y Saúl un doloroso recordatorio de la conexión que tuvo en tiempos con su marido y sus propios padres, los cuales fallecieron siendo ella una niña. Mientras tanto, Aaron, el hermano mayor de Eliza, que antes era el favorito de su padre, se revela contra esa falta de cariño, abriéndose a otras religiosas y buscando a la postre una conexión con una hermosa seguidora de los Hare Krishna. Con su familia desintegrándose delante de sus ojos, depende de Eliza, en un desesperado acto de generosidad y de amor, volver a juntar todos los fragmentos de ese mundo que se ha hecho añicos
