Jennifer Beckstrand writes Amish fiction with such a deft hand that she can pull unexpected emotions from the reader. This is the final entry in her Honeybee Sisters series with the final sister finding a beau.
Josiah Yoder has loved Rose Christner for so many years, but she has been targeted by someone vandalizing the sisters farm and it has caused a tremendous fear to take up residence in her heart.
The story is about Josiah and Rose, how they manage their friendship, how they fall in love, and how they solve the mystery of the vandalism. Rose seems to take the blame for everything that has happened and considers herself a burden to her family. Her Aunt Bitsy and Josiah come together to help Rose overcome her fears and face life head-on. While Rose wants to be no one's project, she appreciates Josiah's and Bitsy's help.
There were several times I was in tears over this book, several times where I laughed, and a few times I got downright angry. Like a Bee to Honey is a five star, two thumbs up, and a quart of honey book.
My thanks to Kensington Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.
