A New Amish Series

I haven't seen any books by Kelly Irvin until seeing this book; I can tell you that I will be on the lookout for more of her books.  Here is the synopsis from the back cover:
"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."
It was an intriguing story, focusing on looking beyond outward appearances to  the inner heart.  I was somewhat surprised at part of the story line, but loved the rich characters and settings.  I would rate this book 5 star for the twist on the lifestyles of the Amish.
I also finished another book last night, so now I'll be back to a more normal routine of stitching and blogging.  Our weather is incredible and will stay warm for the rest of the week.  Hubby is loving it and playing golf tomorrow.  Walking is so nice when it is mild outside.  
Hoping you get to get out and about today.
Sunshine & smiles to you.
