Sweet As Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand

My review today is on Sweet As Honey. This book is the first book in the Honeybee Sisters Series. I don't know about you but I love Jennifer's stories. This book is well written, humorous, and heartwarming. You will love the characters, especially Aunt Bitsy. As an Amish book, it is filled with faith. I love Amish stories but I'm quite thankful I'm not locked into the legalism they have.

Dan Kanagy returns home after living away for two years. His parents sent him to relatives to learn about cattle but really they wanted him to find a wife. Dan only had one woman that interested him and she was living here in his hometown. As a child he was unsure how to get her attention so he would tease her and call her names but in his heart he had loved her. His only desire was to win her heart but now she's dating a man who has always hated him. He stands like a wall between them.

Lily Christner was laughed at and teased by the boys at school. Hurt she turned to the only boy who took her part. Now as an adult he wants to marry her. Lily still believes she is that ugly child and Paul wants to keep it that way. He's doing everything in his power to turn her into a proper humble Amish frau. When Dan came back he reads all about the working of their bees, he's willing to help them harvest the honey, and is always trying to lift Lily up and not put her down. Lily becomes very confused as the men's courting style are so different. Can Lily trust Dan or is he just trying to destroy her in a different way?

A journey of two people trying to survive the trial of everyday life and to figure out what their future is. God has a plan for these two and it is a plan for a hope and a future. God is like that for us too. God never puts people down to make them humble. God wants to lift us up so that we might be used of God. He has a purpose for each of us and it is so much greater than you could ever dream. Give Him a chance to turn your life around.
