When the wind starts howling and the snow starts blowing there is nothing I like better than to curl up with a good Amish book. I loved this book. This is book #4 in The Courtships Of Lancaster County. I am an Amish book lover so I have read all the books. This one is as good as all the others. I love Leslie Gould's style~ she grabs your attention from the first line.
Beatrice Zook and Ben Rupp have known each other for a lifetime. And they have never gotten along all those years. He has a way of driving her mad. And he seems to do it on purpose. In fact ~they have been great rivals. I found him rather charming so I am not real sure why Bea had such a hard time liking poor Ben.
However~ Beatrice is not a real patient person. She has been learning patience in dealing with others as she is helping take care of triplets.
Will she and Ben stop fighting long enough to understand just what is the underneath this rivalry?
