"The Promise of a Letter" Book Review


The Promise of a Letter 

(Amish Letters #2)

by Kathleen Fuller

Book Description:

A letter brings him back to his Amish family. It will take someone truly extraordinary to make him stay. 

Roman is on the verge of leaving the Amish ways. Feeling confined by the strict rules, he longs to do something more with his life. But when things don't go as planned, Roman's prospects outside of the community dwindle. Upon learning that his beloved grandmother has died and left a letter urging him to reconcile with his brother in Birch Creek, Roman decides to return home. But he doesn't plan to stay for long.

Leanna Chupp has always made her own way in her small community of Birch Creek. Though some may call her unconventional--strange, even--Leanna is happy. Her unique outlook on life has meant she's never had many suitors pursuing courtship, which Leanna doesn't mind. She is content being single.

But when Roman and Leanna find themselves working together again, everything changes. Though neither fit squarely within the strictures of the Amish faith, their differences could be the very thing to help them form a deeper connection to their community and to each other. The question remains: will this strengthening bond be enough to make Roman stay for good?

My Review:  In today's modern world filled with technology, emails, texts,  and emojis, the art of letter writing seems to be a thing of the past, but the Amish use it still.  The Amish enjoy handwriting letters, folding them into envelopes, carefully placing the stamp in the upper-right corner, & walking to their mailbox and neatly placing it inside and lifting the flag, then excitedly waiting for a reply.  A letter written by Roman's grandmother has him rethinking his plan of leaving the Amish to become English.  
        What is a good Amish story without a little romance?  Readers follow Roman as he works with Leanna and feels the pull of attraction.  Is that feeling going to be enough to keep Roman within the Amish faith and community, or will he decide to leave?  
         I am rating this book 5*****stars.
         I highly recommend it to readers.
         I received a copy of this book in kindle format from netgalley & Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review.   All opinions expressed are my own.  I was not required to post a positive review.
