Описание

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 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 single one of Jalon's letters. Living with her overbearing aunt, Phoebe doesn't have too much to look forward to. But when Jalon suggests they meet, 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 pen.

    I am so excited about this new series, and about returning to Birch Creek! I think this is her best book yet, and can't wait for book two.

    I can remember when I was younger , I had a pen pal who lived in Scotland. I looked forward to his letters and read them over and over. It was like having a friend you hoped to see one day but until then you got to hear about their country. Phoebe is a sweet and kind woman. Something has happened to make Phoebe and her son Malachi come to live with her overbearing aunt. Oh I didn't like the aunt at all and wanted Phoebe to leave her as soon as she could. When the mail is delivered one day, Phoebe notices that she has gotten mail not belonging to her. She writes to the gentleman named Jason . Now I don't believe in coincidences so I believe Phoebe was suppose to get that letter. They soon start writing to each other, but there are secrets between them. I loved how the author slowly developed their friendship . Will it turn into something stronger? I cheered when Jalon decided to go see why Phoebe had stopped writing so suddenly. It made me think of a knight in shining armor. Phoebe sure could use one in her life. I loved how Jalon stood up to Phoebe's crabby old aunt when he saw how Phoebe was being treated by her. With nowhere else to go, Jalon takes Phoebe and her son to his farm. It's funny how their letter writing had turned into perhaps something more. It must have felt uncomfortable for Phoebe to go to someone's house she didn't really know well. What would you do if you needed to escape from a bad situation? I was quite surprised at the anger that Jalon showed when Malachi had disobeyed and put himself in danger. Was he angry at Malachi for not listening? Did he blame Phoebe for not watching her child better? Or was his anger directed at something else going on in his life? Phoebe and Jalon have done things they regret and they have let themselves feel ashamed and not knowing how to forgive themselves. It seems it is easier to forgive others than it is to forgive ourselves. Do you think it is our pride that won't let us forgive ourselves? I loved when the author talked about worry. I'm so guilty of worrying about everything. Jolen and Phoebe are struggling with the same thing. "Worry was about living in the future and not the present. If we're focused on each day and not fretting about tomorrow, we won't worry." I have fallen in with Malachi. He is a dear boy who is looking for acceptance and someone to tell him how important he is. Have you ever felt that you couldn't do anything right? The author has created characters that are easy to relate to. Their story is emotional and it shows that we all make mistakes, but we can't let the enemy use it to beat us up. I have enjoyed this story so much and have fallen in love with the characters. Wouldn't it be nice to see letter writing become something we do again? You never know when you may find a new friend. I'm looking forward to the next book in this enchanting story. I'm hoping to learn more about Karen and Adam. I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.

    Written in Love by Kathleen Fuller is An Amish Letters Novel. One day Phoebe Bontrager picks up the mail and there is a misdirected letter. She sends the letter back to the sender with a note. Soon Phoebe receives a thank you reply from Jalon Chupp. This is the beginning of their correspondence. Phoebe is staying with her Aunt Bertha in Dover. Aunt Bertha is very stern and strict, and Jalon’s letters are a welcome respite. Jalon lives in Birch Creek and Phoebe’s letters are the high spot of his day. An accident in his youth has clouded his life and led to many poor choices. He is now working a construction job, and it actually thinking about the future. Over the next few months, their letters continue and get longer in length. Both of them, though, have secrets that they have yet to reveal. Phoebe has made sure to get the mail each day before her aunt. But then one day, Aunt Bertha comes in with the mail in her hand. She has opened Jalon’s latest letter to Phoebe. Aunt Bertha forbids Phoebe from having any more contact with him and destroys the letter. After three weeks with no letters from Phoebe, Jalon heads to Dover. Jalon is shocked at how Phoebe is being treated by her aunt and stands up to Aunt Bertha. This leads to Phoebe being ushered out of the woman’s home (I am putting it nicely). Jalon suggests that Phoebe come home with him to Birch Creek (properly chaperoned, of course). These two will need to overcome their pasts in order to have a future together. Their faith and love will be tested. Is there a chance for Jalon and Phoebe to be together?Written in Love is a sweet Amish novel. It is nicely written and has some good characters. I only told you about three characters in my summary. My favorite character was Jalon’s sister, Leanna who is an unusual Amish woman. Leanna is a mechanic and likes to travel. She has a strong personality yet she is friendly. I am hoping the author will give Leanna her own book. The religious aspect is light. I am glad it is not overwhelming (the author gave it just the right touch). I give Written in Love 4 out of 5 stars. I wish the author had not taken so long to reveal the characters’ secrets. By the time, they are disclosed, the reader has already guessed (quite accurately) what the characters were determined to keep hidden. I was frustrated at times by Phoebe and Jalon’s lack of communication. Phoebe was particularly vexing, but she has a reason behind her reticence. I liked the basic premise of the misdirected letter. It is an old-fashioned idea in these modern times. I am curious to see what will occur in the next book in Kathleen Fuller’s An Amish Letters Novel.

    Ok, I just finished this book, and I am sad that it is over, yes, it is one of those books you never want to end, and will linger with you.The thought of mail going to the wrong person, is perfect, and that it goes to another Amish person, is wild, but what a great premise for a story, and it is and thus begins a letter writing courtship, without the participants even realizing they are doing so. The letter writers are both holding secrets, ones that may make the other not want to be with them, but they do withhold them at first.We see with some other characters in this book that try to live their faith at the detriment of others, and they don’t seem to care how much they hurt others, which will make you rather sad and angry.This is one book you don’t want to miss, and by the sounds of it there may be more in this same line of topic, I sure hope so.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Sunday, December 17, 2017Written in Love by Kathleen Fuller, © 2017Amish Letters series, Book 1~* in the heart of Ohio Amish country *~A mistaken address begins correspondence between Jalon Chupp and Phoebe Bontrager, so far unknown to each other ~ that is, until Phoebe returns his letter, explaining it came to the wrong address. Or did it? Phoebe continues to answer Jalon's letters until they are unsure who actually began their pen pal journey. Their letters become frequent, though short, and they learn fun things about each other's lives and an exercise in sharing self they would not likely do in person ~ such as their fears and hopes. I am wondering how Phoebe's mail is not intercepted as she lives with an older family member. When an envelope comes addressed to you stops time in your daily life, to have a bright exchange for a moment of refreshment.Jalon, too, comes to expect Phoebe's letters. Wanting to know her face-to-face, he takes a challenge to go to meet her. A knock at the door brings revealed life to the forefront.I like how these characters learn to look to God for their completeness. Against all odds, they are determined to respect the path opened before them.For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11His ways are best. I am glad that Truth is discovered, examined, and found by them!***Thank you to author Kathleen Fuller and to Fiction Guild for a copy of Written in Love. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation was received.***
