My Review of Sweet As Honey :
The honey is sweet, but the sisters are sweeter. Three girls were taken in by their Aunt after their parents were killed. Now they have been growing up Amish for quite a while. Aunt B isn't your typical Amish woman either, she was an Englisher for a long time until she gave all that up to raise "her girls". Together the four of them run a apiary and live a rather happy lifestyle.
They only problem is, the boys! Aunt B is funny, she knows things like if you feed a boy, he comes back. She should know more about mouse traps, but we can give her and the cat, Farrah Faucet, a pass on that one.
This book focuses on Lily. She has an almost engagement to Paul, a young man who I simply didn't care for at all. She also has a young man who loves her more than he can say, but because of his past, Dan may have lost her before he has even gotten a good change to win her heart.
Overall I really liked this story. I had one aggravation, which is Lily taking so long to make up her mind about some major issues. That drug along pretty badly for me. I was ready to just about scream because she was so slow grasping certain concepts and making certain decisions. Even so, I really enjoyed Sweet As Honey and I'm off to read the next book in the series.
Rose is a darling, she really is. I love how she shows forgiveness, and strength, even when fighting fear and weakness. I did get frustrated that this poor gal has no ability to control her tears, but she is trying. The mystery of who has been causing so much trouble on the farm hasn't been solved yet, but wait till you get to part. I really liked what happened there. I felt that this book was stronger than the second book. Perhaps I just connected more with the story. The cats were again, amazing and very gute, and the roles the cats had in all three of these books made the books even better. I liked the theme of this book, overcoming fears, forgiveness, kindness, bravery, and most of all, God's love.
