My Review:  5 Stars again!  Looking for just the right stationary and licking the stamp.....Pen pals are such fun. I had several pen pals when I was a teenager.  We did not have email so snail mail with old fashioned letters was our only form of communication.  We sent pictures and gifts to each other along with long letters of the details of our lives, even writing poems and songs for each other at times.   Annie Yoder is an Amish teenager though and so it is a bit more complicated for her to have an Englisch pen pal.  Her parents do approve of it as long as they are able to read the girls letters to each other.   Annie's pen pal opens up some forbidden things for her and life gets even more troubled for her.   I won't spoil the story for readers, but I love the way this series involves characters from the previous books.   I feel like they are becoming family to me as I read about them and I find I am anxious to hear news of some of the characters in previous books.   Joanna also plays a large part in this book as she also meets an Englisch young person. Courting customs for the Amish are quite different than those for Englisch youngsters, and church services are also very different.   Read and find out how these things effect Annie and Joanna and their families.  I wish these books had been available when my own daughters were teenagers as each book teaches valuable life lessons.
