Bees in the Butterfly Garden by Maureen Lang- This book has it all!
Sometimes the mind speaks for the heart playing and replaying what it must.
Meg Davenport, has a gift for landscape design. A student at Marisse's boarding school Meg was enrolled by her father when she was young to be groomed into a proper young lady. When she learns about the sudden death of her father, whom she has not been afforded the chance to know well, she feels compelled to travel back home.
Ian Maguire, a partner with Meg's father from the time he was but a boy, had become the object of Meg's fathers attention. When Meg sees him for the first time in many years, she remembered his eyes, so different from her own.
Secrets are told and plans are made. Meg's effort to join her father's partners goes terribly wrong leaving danger in its wake.
This novel has all the makings of a great book, greed, heartbreak, deception and romance. My heart went out to Meg from what she had endured. I was drawn easily into the character's lives, their distinct personalities, voice and surroundings. For me this was a quick read that I easily found I could not put down once I connected with the storyline. I was highly entertained by this well written faith challenging book! The twists were a pleasant surprise! I look forward to the next book in the series! 5 Stars!
