About the Book:
Julia Lapp has planned on marrying Paul Fisher since she was a girl. Now twenty-one, she looks forward to their wedding with giddy anticipation. When Paul tells her he wants to postpone the wedding–again–she knows who is to blame. Perpetual bachelor and spreader of cold feet, Roman Troyer, the Bee Man.
About the Author:
Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. She has many, many Plain relatives living in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and travels back to Pennsylvania, as well as to Ohio, a couple of times each year for research.
This is a sweet tale of learning that what you think you want is not always what is best for you. Julia has been in love with Paul for as long as she can remember. She thought they were going to be married but Paul kept coming up with reasons to delay. She thought it was everyone’s fault but his. When the Bee Man came back and Paul delayed the ceremony yet again she was, well madder than a bee.
What she came to learn was that she and Roman, that same Bee Man that drove her to distraction had more in common than she wanted to believe. As their friendship deepened she learns that perhaps the path she was on had a fork in it for a very good reason.
Ms. Woods Fisher writes a lovely story about learning to accept what is given to you and perhaps stretch your thinking to expand beliefs you might have had from birth. The strength of family is very very important in dealing with whatever is thrown your way and if you keep the faith things will work out…my mother always said that things will work out for the best and as I looked back she was right. This book proves her axiom. It’s well written with well developed characters and the peak into the Amish way of life is always a delight.
