    Not your typical Amish story

    I really enjoyed this story! It was different from most Amish fiction stories I've read. The main female character, Leanna, likes working on motors. Clocks, washing machines, engines, anything with running parts can't stump her. She works until she figures out the problem. Her family would rather she be the typical Amish woman and cook, sew and garden but that just wasn't who she was. The main male character, Roman, has left the Amish after a rebellion of sorts on the strict rules his own Amish community follows. He has felt no love from his own parents, only his grandmother. When his English world is falling apart and he hears his beloved grandmother has passed away, he travels back home. Not able to reconcile with his parents he seeks out his brother who lives in a Amish community that has less rigid rules. His grandmother's last request in a letter to him was for him and his brother to get back together. These characters grew on me in a short period of time. I wanted to hug Roman after the way his parents treated him. Leanna had grown up in a loving family, so very different than Roman's upbringing. I also felt heartbreak for Roman's brother Daniel and his wife Barbara. So many disappointments and an accident that started changing things both in the physical realm and the spiritual. A growing and changing among the characters developed over time and some romance started blooming too. This was a sweet story that I would heartily recommend to anyone that enjoys Amish fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book and was not required to write a review. All opinions are strictly my own.

    Crochets

    I enjoy reading books involving the Amish and their religion. They have always intrigued me and this book was very interesting and left me thinking about my own life and having God in it. Forgiveness is not always easy to give but one must give forgiveness in order to be free.

    Second book in An Amish Letters Novel series!

    The Promise of a Letter by Kathleen Fuller is the second An Amish Letters Novel. It is August in Birch Creek, Ohio. Roman Raber left his Amish community of Draperville, but things have not gone as planned. He wishes to go to college to become an engineer, but he cannot get the funding he needs. Roman receives a missive telling him his beloved grandmother has passed away. She left him a letter suggesting that he reconcile with his brother, Daniel. Roman knows it will not be easy, but he does know it is the right decision. Roman knows that Daniel will not make the task easy, but Roman is hoping Daniel will forgive him in time. Leanna Chupp is an unusual Amish woman. She is twenty-four, 6-foot-tall, unmarried and works at Daniel Raber’s small engine repair shop. Leanna enjoys her work (has a knack for it) and is happy with her independence. Shortly after Roman returns to the community and starts working at Raber’s Small Engine Repair, Leanna finds herself out of a job without a warning or a reason. An accident brings Roman and Leanna together to work towards a mutual goal. They slowly get to know each other, and Leann begins to envision a different future for herself. But is Roman ready to commit to the Amish community? Will Daniel be able to forgive his brother? The Promise of a Letter is a well-written, has a steady pace and beautiful setting. I liked the characters especially Leanna Chupp. I found her to be a refreshing change. I appreciated that she had an unusual occupation and that she was not afraid to be herself. It was nice that the pair become friends and get to know each other before the romance develops. The story had good life lessons (giving and accepting forgiveness, power of prayer, holding on to your faith, gossip). My favorite was the harmful effects of rumors/gossip. The Christian element is noticeable, but it was light (handled very well). My rating for The Promise of a Letter is 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). I did feel that the ending was rushed. The Promise of a Letter is a sweet, heartwarming story with good messages. I am looking forward to reading the next book in An Amish Letters series that will contain Ivy’s story.
