Friday’s Feature: Sweet as Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand

The Honeybee Sisters

Lily, Poppy, and Rose Christner, known as the Honeybee Sisters in their Amish community, are smart, inseparable, and all grown up. Orphaned when they were very young, the girls were raised by their eccentric Aunt Bitsy, who doesn’t behave like a proper Amish spinster. The Honeybee Sisters have blossomed into rare beauties, and the boys in the community have begun to take notice. But Aunt Bitsy is determined to scare off all comers with her brusque manner and her handy shotgun. None but the most worthy will make it past Bitsy’s defenses. It’s going to be a rowdy and romantic summer—harvesting honey from their many beehives and fighting off the boys right and left.

Though she has blossomed into a beauty, Lily Christner doesn’t really believe it. Deep down, she still feels like a lonely, gawky teenager. Maybe that’s why she’s all but promised herself to Paul Glick, the one boy who never teased her in her awkward girlhood–unlike Dan Kanagy, whose creative name-calling left her in tears many a time. Now he’s back in town after two years away–and being surprisingly sweet, suspiciously attentive–and making Lily unsettlingly yet deliciously nervous. It seems Dan wants Lily’s forgiveness–and her heart. But can he convince her–not to mention her protective schwesters and aendi–that despite the past, her future lies with him? …

  1. I love Jennifer’s books. They are always wholesome and very christian orientated. The “Honey Bee Sisters” were very good and kept my interest, as usual. But, the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill just kept me drooling for more and more. Anna and Feltie became my very favorite seniors. Anna who couldn’t cook well and Feltie who thought he was eating at the Ritz. I just loved them and all their grandchildren. I have enjoyed all of the books you have co-authored also. Thank you for making this senior’s life so much fun and giving me laughter and enjoyment. Now onto the The Petersheim Brothers, Andres, Abraham and Austin, starting in June.
