Overview

Sometimes it takes a barren landscape to see the beauty of God's creation.

Phineas King knows better than to expect anything but shock and pity wherever he shows his face. Horribly scarred from the tragic accident that claimed his mother's life, he chooses to keep his distance from everyone, focusing his time and energy on the bees his family raises. If no one sees him, no one can judge him. So why does he start finding excuses to seek out Deborah Lantz, the beautiful new arrival in town?

Deborah can't get out of Bee County, Texas, soon enough. Once her mother and younger siblings are settled, she is on the first bus out of this dusty town. She is only waiting on the letter from Aaron, asking her to return to lush Tennessee to be his fraa. But that letter never comes. As she spends time getting to know Phineas--hoping to uncover the man beneath the scars--she begins to realize that she no longer minds that Aaron hasn't sent for her.

As both Deborah and Phineas try to come to terms with lives that haven't turned out the way they imagined, they discover that perhaps Gott's plans for them are more extraordinary than they could have dreamed. But they need to let go of their own past sorrows and disappointments to find the joy and beauty that lies just ahead for them both.

Timeless stories of love and loss reach across two generations in this romantic opening to Irvin’s (A Plain Love Song) Amish of Bee County trilogy. Young Deborah Lantz must make the difficult journey from her home in Tennessee to the heat of south Texas with her widowed mother, Abigail, and her younger siblings. Deborah vows to do her duty and help her mother get settled with an old suitor before she makes haste to return to the life, and love, she left behind. Gott (God, however, has other plans for her. One of the first people she encounters in Texas is an emotionally and physically scarred Phineas King, son of the local beekeeper. His pain calls to hers and vice versa, something they both try to deny. The awesome power of faith and family over personal desire dominates this beautifully woven masterpiece. Agent: Mary Sue Seymour, Seymour Agency. (Jan.)
