Book - The Love Letters
Author - Beverly Lewis
Publisher - Bethany House
Paperback, 345 pages.
Beverly does a marvelous job creating a story that encourages peacefulness. An Amish young woman, Marlena, has to leave her parent's home to spend time with her Mennonite grandmother. Grandma needs help caring for her home and doing chores. We get to know the neighbors and what the chores are like. There is a young boy next door who is struggling to help with the work, but his father won't take the time to encourage him. In the boy's wandering (as he plays in the community) he finds an old letter and meets a stranger. There are a few different subplots that keep the story interesting. Marlena's sister gets in an accident and her baby is sent to Grandmother's house for Marlena to tend. Overall, it is an interesting story with genuine Amish - style dialogue that will entertain.
