Leslie Gould in her new book, “Becoming Bea book coverBecoming Bea” Book Four in The Courtships of Lancaster County series published by Bethany House takes us into the life of Beatrice Zook.

From the back cover:  Can Bea and Ben Turn Rivalry Into Romance?

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?

Beatrice Zook is a loner. She seems quite content to keep others at arm’s length, stay at home and help take care of her mother. Until her sister forces her to take drastic action. Now Bea takes a job working for a family that just had triplets, helping take care of them and whatever needs help around the house. Ben Rupp is working for the husband and the two worlds collide once again. What is terrific is watching Bea bloom once she is forced outside her environment and comfort zone. She really is a people person it is just she wanted to hide in her shell. “Becoming Bea” really highlights just how good a story writer Ms. Gould really is.  Leslie Gould has an attention to details that help draw you into the story as well, of course, as her marvelous characters.  Bea and Ben have a firecracker relationship that is presented in such a real manner that you feel as though they are friends of yours and when the book eventually ends you are sorry to see them go.  “Becoming Bea” deals with themes of finding oneself and restoration as only God can produce.  I liked this book a lot.
