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?

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.
Judy K.4 Stars Out Of 5The Love LettersDecember 29, 2015Judy K.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I did like the book and it was different from the usual Amish story.
It was a loving story and stole your heart and yet sad and happy and times...the more you got into the story
I wanted to figure out what would happen to the baby, who Marlena loved, and yet wasn't hers.
There other people you really liked a lot....the old man Boston and Young Small Jay, who helped everyone, and many others who played a part of this Amish novel. You will enjoy this book that Beverly Lewis wrote!!

Beverly writes this book in a style that is very interesting and keeps your attention to the very end. I usually can predict her writings, however, this story was different and kept me reading to find out what was going to happen. As usual settings the book does take place in Amish country of Brownstown, PA in the 1960's era. The book is centered on the main character, Marlene who stays with her grandmother and that is where your reading adventure will begin.
I would recommend this to all of Beverly's fans, those that enjoy Amish stories and anyone that wants to read a book that will touch your heart.
It is a book that will take a few chapters to grab your attention, but once you get going you will want to keep reading. Great read for any age.

This book I had a really hard time getting into and had some mixed emotions about it, but once I did, it was filled w/all kinds of different types of lessons to be learned. The main character, Marlena Wenger, goes to spend time w/her grandmother, who is recently widowed. While there, she is thrown into the 'job' of taking care of her infant niece, because of an accident her estranged sister is involved in, which she hopes is only for a short time.
Marlena has some insecurities of her own, but makes friends w/the neighbors, who have a son w/a disability, named Small Jay. He becomes intertwined w/an older man who has Dementia and can't remember who he is or where he is from. The two hit it off and quickly become good friends, despite the age difference, their disabilities giving them both common ground.
Marlena also takes a quilting class and some unique friendships form there as well.
This book is a bit different from some of the author's other books, but I think you will find it interesting as well.
