Book Review: The Keeper By Suzanne Woods Fisher

About the book (Goodreads):

A family. A farm. A heart. All in need of repair.

Life on Windmill Farm hasn’t been the same since Julia Lapp’s father has had trouble with his heart. But that doesn’t stop Julia from hoping for a bright future. She has planned on marrying Paul Fisher since she was a girl. Now twenty-one, she looks forward to their wedding with giddy anticipation. But when Paul tells her he wants to postpone the wedding–again–she is determined to change his mind. She knows who is to blame for Paul’s sudden reluctance to wed: the Bee Man.

Roman Troyer, the Bee Man, travels through the Amish communities of Ohio and Pennsylvania with his hives full of bees, renting them out to farmers in need of pollinators. A mysterious man who relishes his nomadic life, Roman especially enjoys bringing his bees to Stoney Ridge each year. But with Julia seriously at odds with him, Windmill Farm is looking decidedly less appealing.

My thoughts:
This book is anything but plain Amish.

There is growing up, love loss, finding love again, puppies, rare birds, Uncle Buck.

 

 

 

Heath issues, special child, gambling and good old fashion quilting.

What is there not to love.

 

 

I gave this book 5 stars out of 5 stars.
