About the Book:
A strange, mystical place allows Deborah and Phineas to see themselves and others with new eyes. When Deborah Lantz arrives in Bee County, Texas, she expects to 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.
This is an Amish romance book. A story with a move from Tennessee to Texas. A widow and her children. One really big adventurous move.
This doesn't just center around a romance. There are two unexpected romances that blossom in Texas for this family.
Not just romance but also a different kind of love. A love for God. God and faith in everyday life is mentioned in this book.
This move is hard on the family as Texas is hit not only with a drought but also economical struggles. Compared to Tennessee it is a barren waste land with a climate that is hot and muggy.
Will the move and change be a good one? Or will they regret the move and the lives and loves they left behind?
