The Promise of a Letter (Amish Letter #2) by: Kathleen Fuller

The Promise of a Letter by Kathleen Fuller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Always remember this, God loves you, and I love you. No matter your path in life, those things will always be true. Even as a young boy you were your own person. Smart, stubborn, always trying to find ways to make things better. Easier. But God never promised us an easy life. Struggle and pain is what makes us grow, and it also shows how we need the Lord in our lives. Escaping isn’t the answer. Facing things is. You can be the person God created you to be and still be part of the community and family that loves. It breaks my heart that you have isolated yourself from us.

A grandmother’s letter to her grandson is full of promise and love. A sweet continuation of the first book that brought Jalon Chupp and Phoebe now brings an unlikely pair together Jalon’s sister Leanna and Roman. Leanna is not your typical young Amish woman waiting to be married. She lives on her brother’s farm in the grandparents home and works for an Amish machine shop owned by Daniel, the eldest brother of Roman. Leanna loves her job and the family she works for, however, when Amish gossip makes the round, Leanna must learn what it means to turn the other cheek.

The brother’s are estranged but with their grandmother’s letter of promise, they are brought together when they need each other the most. Both brothers are fighting the need however, with circumstances and the support of strong Amish women, they fulfill the promise of a grandmother’s love for her grandsons.

With the walls that Roman has built around his heart, Leanna heals her own heart with the loss of her job as she finds purpose and with patience and love.

I truly love the characters that Fuller brings to life in this Amish Community. She deals with alcoholism and other issues that each family encounters. The prideful heart and the heart that yearns for acceptance. There is real connection with these characters that had me in tears and whooping for joy when the heart was open to love. Loved it!

A Special Thank You to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
