A letter brings him back to his Amish family. It will take someone truly extraordinary to make him stay.
Roman is on the verge of leaving the Amish ways. Feeling confined by the strict rules, he longs to do something more with his life. But when things dont go as planned, Romans prospects outside of the community dwindle. Upon learning that his beloved grandmother has died and left a letter urging him to reconcile with his brother in Birch Creek, Roman decides to return home. But he doesnt plan to stay for long.
Leanna Chupp has always made her own way in her small community of Birch Creek. Though some may call her unconventionalstrange, evenLeanna is happy. Her unique outlook on life has meant shes never had many suitors pursuing courtship, which Leanna doesnt mind. She is content being single.
But when Roman and Leanna find themselves working together again, everything changes. Though neither fit squarely within the strictures of the Amish faith, their differences could be the very thing to help them form a deeper connection to their community and to each other. The question remains: will this strengthening bond be enough to make Roman stay for good?

Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Promise of a LetterAugust 20, 2017Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Promise of a Letter is the fabulous second installment from the Amish Letter series. Roman has left his Amish home and has been thinking about going English. However, he receives word that his grandmother has passed away. She has left him a letter with her dying wish for Roman to come back home to Birch Creek and find a way to reconcile with his brother, Daniel. Reluctantly, he goes and hopes he will not be there for long. Daniel's female employee, Leanna, is not what most would think of when they think of a young Amish woman. She does find herself among the gossip and untrue rumors from the community because of her unconventional ways. When tragedy strikes, Roman and Leanna are forced to work with one another and find themselves at odds. Will this drive Roman further away from his Amish faith or will it keep him in Birch Creek forever?
I loved The Promise of a Letter. I was not sure what I thought of the main characters, Roman and Leanna, at first. Leanna is not the average Amish woman I am used to reading about in Amish Fiction. But I did come to love her and found it to be quite refreshing to find a unique character like her. Roman grew, too, grew on me quickly once I started to get to know him. The two learned important lessons: Forgiveness, Redemption, and Faith. Just a beautiful story with several scenes that brought tears to my eyes. I cannot wait to read the third book in the series.
5 plus stars.
I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
CafinatedReads20095 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful story of God's Grace!August 20, 2017CafinatedReads2009Quality: 5Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0After reading Written In Love, I couldn't wait to get my hands on book 2. I finally did and let me tell you what. I absolutely adored it! Book 2 is wonderfully written and instantly captivating, just like book 1. Ms. Fuller once again takes us to Birch Creek where her readers get to fall in love all over again with past, and new characters.
Roman and Leanna's characters really gripped me! I loved them both for different reasons. Roman's character really pulled at my heart, perhaps because I always felt like I couldn't please anyone know matter what I did. Watching him and seeing how he reacts to the letter from his grandmother, really tugged at my soul. I loved him! And sweet Leanna. Bless her. She's so different from your typical Amish women and I loved that about her! Ms. Fuller truly did a good thing with her character. Seeing Roman and Leanna together, following them through this story, was a wonderful time.
This book is so full of messages of God's understanding and forgiving grace. I loved that. I felt His presence while taking this journey with Leanna and Roman and I couldn't wait to get to the end of the book to see what God's plan was for them. I was not disappointed! Ms. Fuller made it into a 5 star worthy book for sure, and it leaves me wanting book 3! I need more Birch Creek Amish and God's grace in these books. Hats off to a wonderfully talented, truly fantabulous Amish novelist who knows how to throw a curve ball and hook her readers!

MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Can You ReturnAugust 15, 2017MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0his is the second book in The Amish Novels Series, and just as good as the first, in fact the people we learned to love are right here.
I adore it when a book continues with the folks we lived with in the first book, and this one will warm your heart. Phoebe and Jalon are now married and expecting a baby, and Leanna is working for Daniel, fixing motors, she is not a girly girl.
We catch up with Daniel and Barbara, and your heart will break for them. A very sad happening is a catalyst for bringing Roman back to Birch Creek, Ohio, and a reunion with Leanna, and if you are familiar, they were like oil and water.
Be ready to be absorbed into the Amish life in this community, whether you are sitting down for dinner, or playing in the yard with the children, and living their faith. The community has their share of gossips and like everywhere; they spread their damage by words, and we see how all are affected.
We are all called on by our faith to offer forgiveness, and as shown here it is not always easy, but satisfying when offered. Will Leanna and Daniel and Barbara be able to live their faith and forgive Roman?
Once you turn the first page you will be compelled to keep reading, and now I cant wait for the next book in this series, Ivys!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.

Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5The Promise of a letterAugust 6, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 0Meets Expectations: 4THE PROMISE OF A LETTER is the second book in Ms. Fuller's Amish Letters series, but while it contains some of the same characters, it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read the first book in the series to find out more about Phoebe and Jalon--Written in Love.
Roman and his older brother Daniel are estranged, mainly because Daniel is tired of being the responsible one and Roman has left the Amish. But the death of their grandmother changed things. Now the two men need to reconcile to honor their grandmother's wishes, but neither is willing to relax around the other enough to do so.
Leanna is more of a man than a woman, more a child than an adult, and she deals with a lot of judgment in her community. Taller than most men, she also works in a predominately male dominated job and knows nothing about women's work. Odd for an Amish woman. When Leanna and her boss, Daniel, are falsely judged, Daniel overreacts, hurting Leanna and himself in the process. I had to keep reading to see how that situation would be resolved.
There really is no sexual tension between hero and heroine, and the faith message is very light. A pleasant read for fans of Amish fiction.
