August stops all beekeeping as she and June continue to mourn. Rosaleen cooks all of the meals. Lily is now ready to talk to August, but she forbears because of August’s grief. Lily occupies her time by writing in her notebook, and before long she fills up all of the pages. She walks in the woods and wonders about her mother. She considers where she and Rosaleen might go next. Often, Lily does not want to get out of bed at all. June has begun taking long car rides with Neil.
