Fabulous Listen--Don't Miss This One!
Paul Fisher is not the guy for Julia Lapp, even if they are promised to one another. She's finally woken up and realized his cold feet might mean something. But she's angry. And she targets Roman Troyer, the Bee Man, as the instigator. Roman is far from home with a streak of white hair announcing the trauma he's experienced because if one looks closely they'll see a handsome young man. Only his past has caught up with him in the form of an irascible woman who is not going to let him keep running, if she can help it. Julia's winsome character and strength make her a strong heroine and her sister is a lot of fun, too.
Stoney Ridge is a lovely place but so many changes have happened that the inhabitants of the Lapp farm aren't feeling too secure.
God's will is at play. And it may not be what Julia and Roman think it is. Lovely story, great characterization, and that fabulous Suzanne voice--what more could you ask for?

Beginning Grates . . . Rest Compensates!
I was minutes away from chucking this audio book . . . I couldn't bear the whining and groveling by Julia over Paul's SECOND postponement of their wedding . . . Amish or no . . . it was PLAINLY too much . . . I'm not a big romance listener . . . has to be a lot more to it for it to catch my attention . . . then grumpy, stern Fern comes on the scene, gentle, thoughtful, Menno, wild and wonderful, M.K. root beer popping, Uncle Hank and then FINALLY the Bee Man . . . the Lapp family, barely limping along since their mother passed away, and now their father, Amos has a failing heart, his condition worsening by the day . . . suddenly this was EXACTLY the kind of book that I love to listen to . . . life at Windmill Farm, with its daily struggles and victories . . . brothers and sisters . . . a community pulling together . . . and faith in God, individually and corporately . . . and ultimately a young woman, learning that the stars in her eyes, well, that isn't really the stuff that makes for a lifelong love . . . grieving, giving, letting go, healing . . . I'm on to the next book in the series . . . I won't judge too quickly this time :)
