I've come to really enjoy this series and have looked forward to the release of each book. Becoming Bea was no exception, I'm just sorry it is the last book in the series.
I enjoyed the characters and loved reading Bea's story, connecting with her since her personality often reminded me much of my own. Of course, her love of books was something I totally understand.
One of the things that impresses me about Leslie Gould's writing is her ability to draw her readers into the story to such an extent that I was completely sympathetic to Molly in Minding Molly and thought Bea was a bit of a flake, but in Becoming Bea I was on Bea's side all the way and was very annoyed by Molly's incessant bossiness.
Any fan of Amish fiction is going to love Bea and Ben's story of finding your place and finding a love worth sacrificing self for. Don't miss Leslie Gould's 21st century Amish retelling of Shakespeare's play Much Ado About Nothing.
