Product Description

WWhen Deborah Lantz arrives in Bee County, Texas, she expectsto find a great oasis of citrus groves and olive trees. Instead, she finds a tiny Amish district struggling to make ends meet on a barren, drought-stricken land.

Deborah longs to go home to the lush, green countryside of Tennessee, but she wants her mother, a widow with six children, to be happy again. Even if that means accepting Stephen as her future stepfather. She can't believe God created such an ugly place filled with strange animals, twisted, stunted trees, and not a drop of rain for months.

Then she meets the beekeeper's son. Phineas King's face is disfigured by scars from an accident that killed his mother and destroyed his trust in God. Through their encounters both begin to realize the beauty in all of God's creation. Deborah walks through the strange land of figs, Mexican squash, and wild cucumbers to see Phineas, who finds solace in his work keeping the bee hives and harvesting honey for his father. Both are rarely alone, but always lonely. Deborah begins to see Bee County through Phineas's eyes and Phineas learns to see himself through hers.

Publisher's Description

Sometimes it takes a barren landscape to see the beauty of God’s creation.

Phineas King knows better than to expect anything but shock and pity wherever he shows his face. Horribly scarred from the tragic accident that claimed his mother’s life, he chooses to keep his distance from everyone, focusing his time and energy on the bees his family raises. If no one sees him, no one can judge him. So why does he start finding excuses to seek out Deborah Lantz, the beautiful new arrival in town?

Deborah can’t get out of Bee County, Texas, soon enough. Once her mother and younger siblings are settled, she is on the first bus out of this dusty town. She is only waiting on the letter from Aaron, asking her to return to lush Tennessee to be his fraa. But that letter never comes. As she spends time getting to know Phineas—hoping to uncover the man beneath the scars—she begins to realize that she no longer minds that Aaron hasn’t sent for her.

As both Deborah and Phineas try to come to terms with lives that haven’t turned out the way they imagined, they discover that perhaps Gott’s plans for them are more extraordinary than they could have dreamed. But they need to let go of their own past sorrows and disappointments to find the joy and beauty that lies just ahead for them both.

    Texas is a long way from Tennessee and it is quite a different climate and terrain. Abigail and her family moved here for her to remarry after their daed's death to Abigail's first love. Her oldest daughter, Deborah, is not pleased as she left her boyfriend behind in Tennessee. But along comes Phineas who was badly scarred in a car accident that took his mother's life. He blames himself and he is sure that no girl will ever be able to look past his scars to love him. Deborah argues with Phineas often and they have heated discussions but she is eager to learn about keeping bees and bird watching from him. And Stephen, the man her mom may marry, is awfully bossy and rough on the children. Can they all look past these things and survive? Deborah reminds Phineas that the Amish do not worry about what is on the outside of a person, but can he believe that?

    I found this to be a refreshingly different Amish fiction book. I lived in Texas myself for three years while my husband attended seminary so I do recall some of the feelings expressed. I missed the change of seasons. I longed for the change of colors in the fall and I really missed snow! We had air-conditioning to combat the heat but the Amish in the story do not have that luxury nor do they desire it. Many people say that they only look on the inner beauty of a person but we all know that in our world that is not often true. Can Deborah convince Phineas that she really does care for him? And what will Abigail do about her relationship with Stephen? Can she overlook his attitude and marry for convenience? Can she learn to love this man or will history repeat itself and she will marry another man again?

    I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers. Kelly Irvin has written a real page-turner.

    I received a free pdf copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
