Audio Book Review: An Amish Flower Farm by Mindy Steele

Oh my goodness! I enjoyed this story so much! This is the first book that I have read by this author and I definitely look forward to reading more books written by her. For this novel, I actually listened to the audio book version and thoroughly enjoyed the narrator, as well. She did a good job of differentiating voices so that I could tell the differences between who was speaking. She did both the male and female voices very nicely.

This story was beautiful and I loved listening as Belinda began to feel more comfortable around Adam. Her abilities with the bees was something special and I enjoyed the conversations that Adam and Belinda had about flowers and bees.

An Amish Flower Farm touches on self image and the way bullying can affect a person’s self esteem. It also shows the importance of a strong family unit and the benefits of knowing that your family loves you.

It took Adam awhile to realize that he could have a happy and fulfilling life with Belinda, even though his pride had been previously hurt by another woman. And Belinda believed no one would want her as a wife. I enjoyed the emotional journeys that both of these characters were on and watching them discover their happily ever after together.

ABOUT THE BOOK

She grows flowers.
He raises bees for honey.
They help each other out,
because that’s what neighbors do…

Belinda Graber loves growing flowers for her family to sell at the Amish marketplace. Venturing beyond the farm to sell them in town, though, is out of the question. People would stare at the birthmark on her cheek, and she’s dealt with enough teasing in her life.

As a beekeeper, Adam Fisher knows how blessed he is to live next door to the Grabers’ greenhouses and fields. But when his father is injured, Adam has to take a job at the local mill. How will he manage the honey harvest?

Adam and Belinda make a deal: if she tends his hives, he’ll sell her flowers in town.

Belinda’s sure that her growing feelings for Adam could never be returned. Meanwhile, Adam can’t help but notice how his shy neighbor charms the bees…or is he the one being charmed? Because his last courtship ended badly, Adam tells himself this arrangement is strictly business, even if Belinda is sweet as honey.

This uplifting Amish romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe.
