All Is Revealed
Like A Bee To Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand is the third and final book in the Honeybee Sisters series. It has been a fabulous trilogy and I am sad to see the end of it. Once again it can be read as a stand-alone but it is far better to read the books in order.
The exploits of the Honeybee sisters, their unconventional Aunt B and the cats – Farrah Fawcett, Billy Idol and Leonard Nimoy – delight the readers once more.
This novel focuses on Rose, the youngest and quietest sister. Rose is carrying a heavy burden. It’s a burden that she refuses to share and it’s root is in the past but it is affecting her present and has the potential to ruin her future. “No amount of wishing or even praying would change the past.” Rose needs to hand her burden over to God and remember that Jesus has already gone to the cross for all our sins.
Blueberry Cupcake Mystery by Naomi Miller is a delightful Amish novella and just perfect for an evening’s read.
Inspite of being short it is packed full of godly themes and lives out taking care of widows and orphans.
Linked in to that theme is the theme of helping your neighbour. Jesus said that whenever we feed/clothe someone, it is as if we are feeding and clothing Him. This novella certainly encapsulates that.
No matter what happens in life, God is in control. He can use bad situations and turn them round for good.
Worth Fighting For
A Bee In Her Bonnet by Jennifer Beckstrand is book two in the Honeybee Sisters series and I absolutely adored it. It can be read as a stand-alone but for maximum enjoyment, I recommend reading the books in order.
Jennifer Beckstrand has created an absolutely delightful Amish series that I just cannot get enough of. It is wonderful to continue the story of the three Honeybee Sisters, their unconventional Aunt B and their two cats – Farrah Fawcett and Billy Idol.
This novel focuses on the feisty Poppy. She is a fabulous character – a complex mixture of strong and vulnerable. She faces life as a battle and a challenge. She never has to look far for mishaps as mishaps seem to be attracted to her!
Trampling The Dandelions
Sweet As Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand is a delightful Amish novel and the first book in the Honeybee Sisters series. I loved it. The minute I began reading, I just knew that Sweet As Honey was speaking straight to my heart.
The characters were all wonderful – from the three Honeybee sisters to the handsome Dan to the feisty Aunt B and even the cat Farrah Fawcett. There is an energy in the novel and it’s humour is infectious. As the reader I really felt that I was witnessing the story unfold rather than just reading a tale.
There is an overwhelming sense of love and family in the novel. The characters live out 1 Corinthians: 13 – their love is inclusive. Everything they do is motivated by love.
