Product Description

Though from the Beachy Amish herself, Marlena meets Ellie Bitner, an Old Order Amish mother who offers quilting and needlepoint classes. They soon form a bond, and Marlena is drawn into the circle of Ellie's family. Ellie's handsome cousin seems rather taken with Marlena, but after her recent breakup, she is cautious where her feelings are concerned.

But things begin to change when Ellie's young son Jacob discovers an older homeless man camped out in the nearby abandoned mill. Suffering from some cognitive disorder, the man has few prospects and fewer possessions--among them a small clutch of letters apparently from his own courting days. Could these letters be the key to the old man's identity? And can they bring healing and hope to Marlena and Ellie as well?

Publisher's Description

Marlena needed time to let things sink in. It was beyond her how all this could possibly work out--adding the care of an infant to her daily routine. Fortunately, it would just be until Luella returned home from the hospital and was stronger.
No more than a couple weeks, surely.




Marlena Wenger's life takes an unexpected turn on the day she learns she must care for her estranged sister's baby. Spending the summer in Brownstown, Pennsylvania, to assist her Mennonite grandmother, and miles from Marlena's Old Order Amish beau, she feels out of her element in nearly every respect. Yet Marlena determines to do her best and stay focused on her future, even as those hopes become drastically altered.

    This review was written for The Love Letters.
    I've enjoyed reading Amish fiction over the years. This particular genre has become quite popular recently with more and more authors coming onto the scene. Beverly Lewis is the original -- and in my opinion, the best of them all. Her stories are always engaging, inspiring and have an authentic ring to them. When the stress of life wears me down, I love escaping into a Beverly Lewis story where life seems simpler, although not always easier.

    The Love Letters is the story of Marlena, a young Amish woman who is spending the summer helping her widowed Mennonite grandmother. When her estranged sister is suddenly unable to care for her baby daughter, Marlena and her grandmother agree to care for the little girl. They expect her to stay only a few weeks.

    The situation becomes increasingly complicated when the little girl's stay is extended -- and they both grow increasingly attached to baby Angela Rose. Marlena's Old Order Amish beau disapproves of the arrangement and of Marlena's recent participation in church more liberal than his own. She is forced to choose between him and the new life she's found.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. Beverly Lewis always does an excellent job of exploring the tensions between various Amish groups and the relationship of the Amish with non-Amish, also called the English. Marlena is a likable character and it is easy to sympathize with her problems. The story resolved very nicely!

    I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a favorable review but could not help it in this situation!

    Im a huge fan of author Beverly Lewis and have loved reading her Amish fiction books. I really got drawn into this book from page one. However, I felt the ending was rushed. I would have liked for the ending to have been drawn out a little longer.

    This book has a good mixture of Amish and English worlds entwined. The storyline was great. The best I have read in a long time.

    It was interesting to be able to relate to what some of the characters in this book went through and what some of them were feeling. Insecurities, family disapprovals and disappointments, unforgiveness, and feelings of not belonging, to name a few.

    Once again we see how God works things out. Its all about trust, faith, and prayer.

    I won a copy of this book on LibraryThing to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.

    My review: This is another great book by Beverly Lewis! The title of the book is so appropriate. Mrs. Lewis has woven different "love letters" throughout the story. Although the book is mainly about Marlena Wenger, there are other characters with their stories intertwined with Marlena's. With those characters come some very weighty issues, but Mrs. Lewis did a wonderful job handling these delicate topics! Marlena is a wonderful character, who sacrifices a lot to do what is right. She is a marvelous example of placing others needs ahead of your own and gives the reader much to contemplate. Loving all the characters as well as the story, I know fans of Beverly Lewis will not be disappointed with "The Love Letters". I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

    Death, dementia, special needs' children, faith and differences in religious practices and expression....these are all some weighty issues and Beverly Lewis tackles all of them in this book. Marlena and her family and friends stole my heart as I read this book. I could relate to Marlena's falling in love with her sister's precious baby, Angela. Marlena sacrifices for many people in her life and never complains or argues. She willingly goes along with ministering to others as she feels God's direction. I definitely could take some lessons from this loyal and dutiful young woman. She stirred my heart and gave me many things to consider and ponder.

    I honestly felt that this book was one of Beverly's best ever. I appreciated the tender and sensitive way that she dealt with some very touchy issues. I taught special needs' preschoolers for many years and learned so many things from the precious children just as Jake taught so much to those around him as he helped the elderly homeless man. I wished that I could attend the quilting and embroidery classes along with Ellie and her students. It sounded like such fun and I would love to have someone show me how to quilt as I am learning but have to teach myself.

    I rate this exceptional book 5 stars and would love to hear readers' thoughts after they have read it.

    I received a pdf version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
