Publisher's Description

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 don’t go as planned, Roman’s 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 doesn’t 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 unconventional—strange, even—Leanna is happy. Her unique outlook on life has meant she’s never had many suitors pursuing courtship, which Leanna doesn’t 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?

    In today's modern world filled with technology, emails, texts, and emojis, the art of letter writing seems to be a thing of the past, but the Amish use it still. The Amish enjoy handwriting letters, folding them into envelopes, carefully placing the stamp in the upper-right corner, & walking to their mailbox and neatly placing it inside and lifting the flag, then excitedly waiting for a reply. A letter written by Roman's grandmother has him rethinking his plan of leaving the Amish to become English.

    What is a good Amish story without a little romance? Readers follow Roman as he works with Leanna and feels the pull of attraction. Is that feeling going to be enough to keep Roman within the Amish faith and community, or will he decide to leave?

    I am rating this book 5*****stars.

    I highly recommend it to readers.

    I received a copy of this book in kindle format from netgalley & Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to post a positive review.

    "Roman was a mystery wrapped up in an enigma and tied with a baffling bow." (p 44) And so begins an unusual courtship...well, more like a hesitant alliance that grows into a wary friendship that finally develops into something much more fulfilling.

    I absolutely loved these unorthodox characters. Both way too individual for their Amish roots. Leanna -- tall, athletic and a hopeless cook and housekeeper who has a gift for fixing mechanical things. She works in a repair shop and roller-blades are her chosen mode of transportation. Definitely not your typical Amish heroine!

    Which makes Roman her perfect match because he doesn't fit into the standard Amish hero mode either. He's made mistakes in the past -- chosen to run from them rather than face them head on and the ensuing fallout is substantial. He's questioning his standing in the community and place in his family. Striving to earn the trust of his only brother. What a complicated family! And, honestly, Roman isn't the only one stubbornly clinging to past behaviours! Gah -- these brothers are teeth-grindingly infuriating!

    Fuller weaves a riveting tale of forgiveness and grace. It's tender and funny and exasperating in turn! The kind of read to relish with sublime bibliophile glee.

    The Promise of a Letter by Kathleen Fuller, 2017

    Amish Letters series, Book 2

    ~* in the heart of Ohio Amish country *~

    Birch Creek ~

    I like how mail for Leanna Chupp is left in the mailbox for her to discover for herself. The hidden art of self-expression! Leanna lives in the smaller dawdi haus behind the main house she and her brother, Jalon, had grown up in on the now expanded farm. She shares her Maine Coon cat, Blue, with her nephew's affection. The opening has her on her way home from work ~ upon her roller blades!

    Leanna is content with her life the way it is. Her job, her home life, and her friend, Ivy Yoder, fill her days with expectation. Things are about to change to ruffle her space in Birch Creek. Roman Raber is returning home.

    Roman never thought he would return, but on the bidding of a letter left for him at the passing of his dear grandmother, Roman must respond to her last wishes for him. How long can it take to complete her request?

    Daniel Raber isn't the easiest person to be around; others might concur. Has hurt crept in so deep to foul his ways? The intent of a miserable heart misleads a promise of surrender. Could it really be possible to forgive and relinquish pain?

    New hopes arise as families come together to polish each other by allowing a trust to enter.

    I especially liked this story! Relinquished hearts turn from hiding. Excellent writing of heart desires exposed to self as well.

    The Promise of Letter

    An Amish Letters Novel #2

    By Kathleen Fuller

    Leanna Chupp has no ideas of ever getting married - after all who would want to court a young woman who can't cook and would rather spend her time repairing equipment. Though she doesn't fit the conventional mold of an unmarried Amish woman Leanna is content with her life.

    When Leanna finds the life she has made for herself in jeopardy she is unsure how to fix what has gone wrong especially when her job with Daniel Raber may go to his irresponsible younger brother Roman. But surprisingly Roman doesn't seem to be the same person he was before. But can he be trusted or will he again let everyone down when they most need him?

    When a crisis occurs and Leanna and Roman must work together they just may discover what has been missing in their lives.

    This is the second book in the Amish Letters series and it is again set in Birch Creek and the same characters who were in the first book Written in Love are again in this book. If you are wondering how this book fits in with a series that is about letters it is because both Roman and Daniel have received letters from their grandmother following her death. Letters that ask for one last promise - an attempt to reconcile and bridge the divide of hurt that has divided these two brothers.

    I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the Fiction Guild with no obligation to post a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Unconventional Amish characters make this a delightful read

    I think that the key ingredients to the most enjoyable Amish fiction, for me, are what I perceive as being unconventional or unexpected characters and/or situations for the sub-genre. Kathleen Fuller's second novel in her Amish Letters series certainly fits the bill.

    Leanna Chupp was introduced in book 1, Written in Love, and left me quite curious to learn more about this Amish woman working as a mechanic. Leanna is a delightful character who is happy with her situation in life, with her job and her single status. When Roman Raber returns, it coincides with her having been let go from her job by Roman's brother Daniel with no explanation.

    Beyond learning more about Leanna and about Roman, who has returned to reconcile with Daniel to fulfill the last wishes that his grandmother put in a letter to him, it is watching them each learn to understand Daniel's reasons for his actions, and the discovery of an unexpected friendship and even more unexpected mutual attraction between the two of them that holds the readers interest. This is more than a simple romance between two slightly eccentric characters, it is an exploration of relationships between the various characters. Themes of understanding, hope, forgiveness, and acceptance can be found in this story and I loved that the letters in this second installment were not between the romantic leads but were written to the two estranged brothers by their beloved grandmother.

    If you are a fan of Amish fiction, the Amish Letters series is shaping up to be a wonderful example of the sub-genre. Letters add to the charm of Amish stories, for me, and I am looking forward to continuing this series (and wondering which of several people will have their turn as main characters).

    I voluntarily received a finished copy for review from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan's Fiction Guild. All opinions expressed are my own.
