I am on constant look out for books by Suzanne Woods Fisher, I absolutely love the Amish books she writes and search them out whenever I'm in the book stores! Like most of Suzanne Woods Fisher, this book was through provoking and faith filled. Its characters weren't without their own conflicts or turmoil, but still handled their problems with a good measure of grace and faith.
The story focuses on Julia Lapp, her father has had heart problems and is facing certain death unless there is an intervention (from either God or him changing his mind). Julia worries about keeping the family farm and taking care of her siblings, but feels that her problems are not too big since she's engaged and supposed to be marrying Paul Fisher. However after Paul's talk with the enigmatic "Bee Man" he once again postpones the wedding. With Julia's world in turmoil, she finds herself "accidentally" befriending the Bee Man, and becomes more and more interested in him. I have to say, this is one of Suzanne Woods Fisher's best books (in my opinion), its filled with both joy and unbelievable heartache, yet is still such a strong encouragement to the reader! I highly recommend this book!
