I read a lot of books, and there are some that stick with you and some that you just don’t mind never hearing about again.
Sarah Crossan’s book, Here Is The Beehive, was just released last week and I am just about 75 pages into it, but it’s really good.
And someone that we all love from Outlander, Caitriona Balfe, has optioned the book. It’s an adaptation for her to star in as well.
Caitriona told Deadline, “I am beyond thrilled that Sarah agreed to collaborate with me to bring her exciting and compelling novel to life for the screen. I was particularly drawn to her portrayal of a flawed, complex and wounded woman, navigating a tragic circumstance somewhat of her own creation.”
The narrative centers around Ana and Connor, who have been having an affair for three years. In hotel rooms and coffee shops, swiftly deleted texts and secretly captured weekends, they have built an insular world focused on one another. Peeling away the layers of two overlapping marriages, the book is a devastating excavation about risk, obsession and loss.
“I am delighted Caitriona Balfe has acquired the film rights to Here Is the Beehive,” said the author, Sarah Crossan. “Her vision is ambitious and daring as well as sensitive to the original text. I am excited to be working with her and her team over the coming months and years.”
