Series: Amish of Jamesport
Rachel Miller dreams of traveling beyond her mundane existence in Jamesport, Missouri. To satisfy her wanderlust, she sends letters to people she reads about in the Budget, the Amish newspaper, and asks that they consider mailing her a simple postcard in return. Her collection of correspondence from various Amish communities isnt as exciting as traveling, but it keeps her occupied. One of her regular communicants is David Lapp, of Seymour, Missouri, and she soon feels as if he knows her better than her own beau, Obadiah. Too bad she is already promised to marry him.Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, David Lapp moved to Seymour, Missouri, as part of a "man swap." The transition was going fine until a serious buggy accident landed him in the hospital, where he nearly died following surgery on his broken leg. After extensive therapy, he has lingering mobility problems and is still struggling to find his place in the world. When he realizes that his spirited pen pal, Rachel Miller, lives in a community where closed buggies are used, he decides on a whim to move there, hopeful for a fresh start.
Rachel never expected to meet David Lapp in person. Even less did she anticipate that his intentions would be to court her. As their friendship moves from the written page to in-person encounters, they discover that the chemistry in their correspondence was real. But what will this mean for the future? Following their heartsand Gods leadingwill require no small amount of sacrifice and significant life changes.
