About the Book: 

From Tiktok phenomenon Whitney Hanson, a revised edition of her bestselling Home, now with a new introduction and more than a dozen new poems

“the bees aren’t going to go away

but they are going to change with you

sometimes they will be chaotic

sometimes they will rest

sometimes they will give you sweet honey

and sometimes they will remind you

of how much love can sting

but if you can find a home within yourself

and make peace with your bees

you will be alright”

–from Home

Resonant, raw, and vibrant, Home is a lyrical map to navigating heartbreak. Tracing the stages of healing—from the despair that comes with the end of a relationship to the eventual light and liberation that comes with time—the poems in Home provide comfort and solace, while revitalizing your soul—and helping you make peace with your bees.
