Product Description

Zook only wants to devote herself to God, but struggles with patience toward others. Her sister's challenge that she can't serve God if she isn't willing to serve His people finally opens her eyes and she soon finds herself helping a family overwhelmed by triplets. Much to her surprise, she has a knack with the babies, and her confidence in dealing with others, both young and old, grows.

One person she'll never be able to find peace with, though, is Ben Rupp. They've known each other forever, and Ben understands precisely how to antagonize her. What neither she nor Ben realize is that beneath all their bickering awaits an attraction neither will admit. When their friends decide to try and bring the couple together, will the pair be able to find true love? Or damage their relationship beyond repair?

    When Bea's family takes a trip to Montana, Bea gets a job to justify not going with

    them. Staying with another family in the district, Bea becomes better acquainted

    with people her age she's shied away from. And, she renews a relationship with her

    school rival, Ben, thanks to their friends. They put a plan in motion to bring Bea and Ben

    together, but the plan is complicated and thwarted by a newcomer to the community.

    Leslie's depth of character development and interesting plot points keep the reader turning

    pages. I wonder... will Edna court Hope's Dat? What's next for Pete and Cate? What happens

    with the bookstore? Readers don't have to love Shakespeare or Amish

    stories to enjoy Leslie Gould's Courtships of Lancaster County series.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the previous three books in Leslie's series, The Courtships of Lancaster County, "Courting Cate". "Adoring Addie" and "Minding Molly" and this new addition, "Becoming Bea' was no disappointment. It was every bit as interesting and captivating as the others. The characters are well developed and very realistic. They are every day people with every day problems. To judge a book on its worth, I find that I must be able to identify with at least one or more of the characters in the story. This was easily done . Bea became part of me. I felt her frustrations, confusion, disappointments and yes, finally her joy! There were times that I wished that I could put my arms around her and just sooth her troubles away. The somewhat quirky characters in this book, also brought forth some giggles as they endured their daily lives full of challenges. The outcome of their actions were not always what I expected but did keep me guessing as to what would happen next.

    The plot moves quickly while being interesting , with a few surprises thrown in , just enough to keep you guessing as to the next twist that the characters will have to stumble their way through. Damaged relationships are dealt with in a sensitive manner, as the romance tends to be somewhat challenging for the couple who bicker and continually antagonize each other. Will this pair ever be able to find true love??? God can find a way, however can Bea and Ben come to an understanding allowing Him to work out His plan????

    It is definitely an entertaining, somewhat light read! A great story with a great plot line and excellent character development! For what more could I ask!!

    I highly recommend this to all Christian fiction lovers!!

    Can Bea and Ben turn rivalry into R-O-M-A-N-C-E?

    For Beatrice Zook it has always been about who will have the last W-O-R-D. To stay that her and Ben Rupp are competitive would be a sheer understatement. For as long as they were in school, the annual spelling bee determined who was the winner. At first it was all about studying definitions, spellings, and root meanings, but for as long as either of them could remember it was about so much more. Until the Amish district decided that there was too much pride in winning the spelling bees, and they were banned.

    Last time Bea could remember, she was the final winner, but after all those competitions between her and Ben, it was tied. Since the Amish graduate at the 8th grade, that was where it ended. In a tie. Bea at one time had hoped for something more between her and Ben, but an argument between them ended things before they ever got started. And now, every time, they see one another, it's a contest of wits, words and emotions.

    Bea believes her life is content keeping people at arms length and sees no reason to step outside her comfort zone to make friends, find a suitable husband or even venture outside her home. Between her books and taking care of her Mamm who survived surgery to remove a brain tumor, she believes her life is complete. Until her sister Molly arrives home from church and announces they are all planning a trip to Montana to visit her husband's family and to give the family a much needed vacation. That is the last thing Bea wants and the only way out of it, is to find a job before the start of the trip.

    Lucky for her, Nan and Bob Miller have been looking for someone to help with the care of triplet preemies, as well as taking care of the house, cooking and anything else Bea can help with. Nan is still recovering from their birth and to say that taking care of three infants is more than a handful, would be an understatement. Not only that but Bob's business in cabinet making is taking on more business than he can handle and he's hired a few of the local boys to help out. One of them just happens to be Ben Rupp. But will Bea have the last word this T-I-M-E?

    I received Becoming Bea by Leslie Gould compliments of Bethany House Publishers and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. I absolutely LOVED this novel. I'd read Courting Cate quite some time ago and was anxious to get back to Lancaster County to see how things were going. I love that Bea and Ben still have that competitive edge and I found myself relating quite a bit to Bea because all through high school, I was what some would call a loner. So to see her trying to find her way in the world, while her sister believes she has Bea's best interests in mind was something I could relate to. It's a great reminder of just how the Amish community works together to help one another out when they truly have a need and families are always looked after. This one easily rates a 5 out of 5 stars in my O-P-I-N-I-O-N! This is the fourth novel in the Courtships of Lancaster Series!
