Product Description

Julia Lapp has planned on marrying Paul Fisher since she was a girl. Now twenty-one, she looks forward to their wedding with giddy anticipation. When Paul tells her he wants to postpone the wedding--again--she knows who is to blame. Perpetual bachelor and spreader of cold feet, Roman Troyer, the Bee Man.

Roamin' Roman travels through the Amish communities of Ohio and Pennsylvania with his hives full of bees, renting them out to farmers in need of pollinators. He relishes his nomadic life, which keeps him from thinking about all he has lost. He especially enjoys bringing his bees to Stoney Ridge each year. But with Julia on a mission to punish him for inspiring Paul's cold feet, the Lapp farm is looking decidedly less pleasant. Can Julia secure the future she's always dreamed of? Or does God have something else in mind?

    Man calls it coincidence, God calls it a miracle

    This review was written for The Keeper, Stoney Ridge Seasons Series #1.
    Julia Lapp is the oldest child of widower Amos Lapp and she is in love with Paul Fisher, she's known she would marry him since she was a young girl. Paul loves Julia too, he just isn't sure he wants to marry her at the young age of 21. He has just 'postponed' their wedding for a second time. When M.K., short for Mary Kate, starts telling about all of the other boys that have called off their 'courtin' it dawns on Julia, the Bee Man is back in town!

    Amos is a sick man, he needs a heart transplant and can't keep up with the work so his uncle Hank helps out a little. Uncle Hank is always the talk of the community and writes for The Budget. When Fern Graber reads about the Lapp family in Stoney Creek she writes to Hank and volunteers her services to help the family out. Without asking Amos, Hank accepts her offer.

    Fern is a strict no nonsense kind of woman, she knows there are four kids, Amos and Uncle Hank but she thinks she's coming to cook and clean for Amos. I don't know how she thought the kids would live in the house and eat when she won't allow anyone in her kitchen or even so much as get in the refrigerator for a glass of milk. Julia finally gives her an ultimatum to either cook for all of them or leave. She is so strict that M.K. is quickly up to rule 436 and counting.

    What a wonderful story about how a man who is about to lose his life and won't accept a heart transplant. A young woman who is in love with someone and even after he 'postpones' the wedding twice still has faith that he will marry her. A story of how you can dislike someone and find out they aren't at all what they seem. What an encouragement to become an organ donor, as Amos always says, "What man calls Coincidences, God would call a miracle."

    This book had my attention, and kept it, from the first page. It was a perfect blend of humor, romance, and touching moments. I fell in love with all of the characters and I didn't want the book to end! This is one of the few books that made me cry. A truly inspirational read, I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    Most books, after a couple of chapters, you know how it is going to end. Not this one! I was really surprised on more than one front!

    I got it as an ebook, for free! Which is a great price! I really enjoy the availability of free books. Cash is tight sometimes. Thank you CBD for this opportunity!

    What a really cool story! I loved the element of the bees and all of the talk of beekeeping. I thought the characters were great and have a special affection for Rome.

    The way that this story wrapped itself up gave me goosebumps. It actually snuck up on me. I had given thought to what might happen to Poppa Lapp early on in the book but didn't see the ending coming at all.

    This was a great story and I enjoyed reading it a lot. Well done Ms. Woods-Fisher! I highly recommend it!
