The Beekeeper's Son - A Book Review
Phineas King is a man covered in scars from a horrific accident that also killed his mother when he was eight years old. He has grown accustomed to the looks of shock and pity from everyone he meets. He chooses to keep to himself whenever possible and focuses his time on the bees that his family raises. He is bitter and doesn't think that anyone will ever love him or even want to look at him. When Deborah meets Phineas her first reaction is shock, but she looks past his scars and sees the man inside. She tries her best to try to get to know him, but Phineas is intent on pushing her away. Can they both put aside their disappointments and past hurts to find the joy that God has in store for their future?
I really loved this book! The author Kelly Irvin has a great writing style that pulled me right into the story! My heart broke for Phineas at the pain he has felt in his lifetime. I enjoyed Deborah's boldness and spirited personality. The story of Phineas and Deborah was great, but I also enjoyed the other character's and their stories. I would love to read more about Abigail and the new life she is beginning and I hope the author decides to write another book and expand more on her!
