Written in Love by Kathleen Fuller - Review of the first book in the Amish Letters series




BACK  OF  THE  BOOK  BLURB
"Dear Mr. Chupp"---WITH THOSE THREE WORDS, A PEN-PAL RELATIONSHIP IS IGNITED AND TWO LIVES ARE CHANGED FOREVER.

Jalon Chupp has a past he isn't proud to claim. He's worked hard to overcome his youthful mistakes, and he has recommitted himself to his Amish faith. When he receives a sweet note included in a piece of misdirected mail, he can't help but write back. Soon, the letters he receives from Phoebe are the highlights of his days, and with a hopeful heart, he suggests they meet in person.

phoebe, too, looks forward to every one of Jalon's letters. Living with her overbearing aunt, Phoebe doesn't have much to look forward to. Then Jalon suggests they meet, and she panics---although she has shared some of the deepest longings of her heart with him, she hasn't been entirely truthful about her past. But when Jalon shows up at her aunt's doorstep, everything is revealed. And she can only pray he'll forgive her for holding back the truth.

In order to reach beyond the errors of their pasts, both Phoebe and Jalon must put their faith in something---or Someone---bigger than either of them could ever pen.


MY  REVIEW
What a great way to start a new series, with a wonderful story about changing your life around and having the faith to live that life, learning to share your deepest regrets and leaning on someone else by sharing those past mistakes. Oh YES, I will be watching for the second book to come out! Oh no, I just looked and that won't be until AUGUST!!!! Come on Kathleen, that long, lol, that is a long wait, but I know it will be worth it.



BookLook Bloggers sent me this book in return for my honest review, which I have given.
