Suzanne Woods Fisher kicks off the brand-new Stoney Ridge Seasons series with The Keeper (Revell Books). Julia Lapp looks forward to her marriage to Paul Fisher with giddy anticipation. But when Paul postpones the wedding—again—she knows who to blame: Perpetual bachelor Roman Troyer, the “Bee Man.” He’s man who travels through the Amish communities of Ohio and Pennsylvania with his hives full of bees, renting them out to farmers in need of pollinators. He usually enjoys bringing his bees to Stoney Ridge each year, but with Julia on a mission to punish him for inspiring Paul’s cold feet, the Lapp farm is looking decidedly less pleasant.
Can Julia secure the future she’s always dreamed? Or does God have something else in mind?
