The Postcard
The Amish of Jamesport #2
By Laura V. Hilton

Rachel Miller dreams of traveling outside the Amish community she calls home.  But that seems unlikely especially as the man she is engaged to has no plans to travel once they are married. Obadiah is everything Rachel thought she wanted, until she began corresponding with David Lapp.

Hoping to encourage David as he healed from a buggy accident, Rachel struck up a unique friendship with a person she had never met and never would.  But Rachel's letters offered David more than encouragement.  Her letters offered him a hope of something more.  With nothing more than a few belongings David left behind all that he knew in hopes of winning Rachel's heart.

But he is too late.  Rachel is promised to another, though she is drawn to David even before she knows that this is the man to whom she has been corresponding for more than a year.  When David is offered a teaching position at the school across from her home Rachel's heart is thrown into turmoil.

The path to love is never easy and Rachel has some serious soul searching to do.  But when tragedy strikes the decision may no longer be up to her.

Fans of Amish romance will delight in this book.  This is the second book in the series but if you have not read the first one you won't feel lost, as this book could easily be a stand-alone book.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.
