The Beehive Cluster

beehive cover kiindle announcement

For a magical experience, read Rosemary Pavey's most recent novel.

On a fragile planet with few choices left, technology promises magic solutions, but if reality can be re-mastered at the touch of a button, how can one know what is actually true? And what place is left for the magic of the imagination?

These are questions at the heart of this tale of our time. For the young rebel, Trudi Larsson, they become a battle between the mythic world of her half-Sami grandfather and the machinations of a plot to steal the blueprint of life.

Bees, stars and spindle whorls... From Inca legend to Arctic snow, the story takes a roller-coaster ride, charting landscapes invisible to the ordinary eye.

Here you will find humour, adventure, skulduggery and the breathtaking patterns of the cosmos..

Welcome to the world of The Beehive Cluster.

Hold tight, for things are not quite what they seem!

A new series of paintings exploring the landscape of Mountains.

Ever suffer from mountain-sickness - the longing to take off into wild and inaccessible places?

300 miles from the nearest peak, Rosemary finds a cure by swapping boots for brushes and takes a walk in paint through the wilderness landscapes of her mind.

Exhibition open throughout weekends in May and at other times when possible. Please see opening times for daily information.
