Beatrice Zook knows God wants her to learn patience toward others. When assisting a family overwhelmed by triplets proves surprisingly successful, her confidence in dealing with others, both young and old, grows.
One person she’ll never be able to find peace with though is Ben Rupp. They’ve known each other forever, and Ben understands precisely how to antagonize her. What neither she nor Ben will admit is that beneath all their bickering, attraction awaits. When friends decide to try and bring the couple together, will the pair be able to find true love? Or will they damage their relationship beyond repair?
Becoming Bea is probably my favorite out of the Courtshipsof Lancaster County series. I think this author has really found her voice. Don’t get me wrong…all of the books have been really good but I just think each book has been better than the last! This series of books are all Amish renditions of Shakespeare—very loosely based. They are written in first person perspective which I usually don’t enjoy as much but this author does it really well!
In fact—Bea is determined to never marry or have children. When she takes a job as a caregiver for premature triplets, she begins to wonder if her resolve to never be a mother is what she really wants for herself.
Just when things seem to be working out for Bea and Ben, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity causes mistrust between them. With the uncertainty of their future and with Molly (Bea’s older sister) urging the family to move out of state—it seems that things are officially over for Ben and Bea.
