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.
