Review: The Promise of a Letter by:Kathleen Fuller

 The Promise of a Letter (Amish Letter #2)
About the Book:
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?


My Review:
 I don't care what anyone says, Amish Fiction is where its at. You wouldn't think that they would have very good stories but they really do. I love this genre and it offers us up some really good stories.

 Roman is about to return home to his old Amish community that he left so many years ago to reconcile with his breather. He loves his family but doesn't plan on staying their past the reconciliation. Its like I tell my kiddos, death trumps everything. No matter what situations are going on with your family, death should be a reason that you reconcile and that is what Roman plans to do with his brother, Daniel.

 Leanna is very different from a typical Amish woman. I think that is the thing you will notice the most about this story. Leanna is taller than most women and not only that she works in the men's arena.

 When Roman comes back to the small community of Birch Creek, things seems to change between him and Leanna. Roman seemed a bit troubled when he left the Amish community but after his return things are different. read along to find out what the future holds for Roman and Leanna.

 A great read any time of the day or night!
