Sadie is doing the best she can to cook their meals and take care of the house. But she is also shy and jealous of her sisters. Sadie is plump and she eats to take her mind off of things. Menno is seventeen, but he is a special boy - he's a bit slow intellectually, but he is gifted with animals. Then there is Mary Kate, M.K, a rambunctious young girl who just wants everything to be ok and for Jimmy Fisher to leave her alone - a neighbor boy who drives her crazy.
When Roman Troyer, the bee man, arrives, Julia is furious with him, but they need his services and his help. Roman is worried about Amos and a bit besotted with Julia. Then help arrives in the form of Fern, a bossy no nonsense woman, who is doing her duty to help out the family. With not knowing what path God has chosen for each of them, you can be sure that it is filled with love, hope, laughter and tears.
The Keeper is a wonderful read - filled with likable characters and a beautiful setting in Amish country. The troubles the characters go through and how they put their faith in God to help them through it is inspiring. The love triangles, the heartbreak of watching a parent suffer and wanting to help and the love and support of family is what makes this novel shine. I loved it!
