The Keeper by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Be sure to read to end of this post there are two giveaways involved here.  
1 for an ipad2 and right here on this blog I'm giving away a copy of this book

Susanne Woods Fisher has done it again.  She's made a honey of story.  This is one that will keep you buzzing the pages.  You don't want to miss what is happening at Stoney Ridge.  Julia Lapp is a spit-fire character. 

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.

Roamin' Roman 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 relishes his nomadic life, which keeps him from thinking about all he has lost. He especially 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 of? Or does God have something else in mind?
About Suzanne:
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.

Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world.  In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don't have to "go Amish" to incorporate many of their principles--simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily-- into your life.

When Suzanne isn't writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grandbaby (!), she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you just can't take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.

Hi Apple Blossom from Lane Hill House. Happy New Year Blessed 2012.
The new thing I found at Suzanne's blog is that she has an on-air program!

Lane Hill House said...

I need to get educated! Will you write to me and tell me how to insert side buttons and Favorite Sites I Visit? That would simplify my life!

I love Suzanne's on-air program. I listen to it whenever I remember it. However, most times I'm not real good at remembering it. I love the fact that you can listen to post programs that you miss.

Thanks for the comment Lane

I will answer your other comment privately as soon as I can maybe this afternoon if possible.
