Written in Love
An Amish Letters novel #1
By Kathleen Fuller

A misdirected letter finds Phoebe Bontrager starting an unexpected correspondence with Jalon Chupp. For both this correspondence is one that touches both their hearts. But letters give an anonymity that allows them to keep the secrets of their past.

For Phoebe, Jalon's letters are the highlight of her life. Living with her aunt is a burden that she has to live with. It is the price she must pay for the choices she made. And revealing the truth is something she doesn't want to do as her friendship with Jalon isn't something she is willing to risk. But Jalon wants to meet Phoebe and to share his own past with her and his hopes for the future.

When the truth comes out Phoebe and Jalon must decide how next to proceed especially when Phoebe's aunt discovers this friendship and Phoebe's future is in doubt.

Those who enjoy Amish fiction will enjoy this offering from Kathleen Fuller as she starts a new series with this book. And who doesn't enjoy getting a letter in the mail? I know I've always enjoyed getting news from a friend, the surprise of a letter in the mailbox and the anticipation of revealing what news will be revealed.

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


About the Book:
"Dear Mr. Chupp"–with those three words, 
a pen-pal relationship is ignited and two 
lives are changed forever.

Jalon Chupp has a past he isn’t proud to claim. He’s worked hard to overcome his youthful mistakes, and he has recommitted himself to his Amish faith. When he receives a sweet note included in a piece of misdirected mail, he can’t help but write back. Soon, the letters he receives from Phoebe are the highlights of his days, and with a hopeful heart, he suggests they meet in person.
Phoebe, too, looks forward to every single one of Jalon’s letters. Living with her overbearing aunt, Phoebe doesn’t have too much to look forward to. Then Jalon suggests they meet, and she panics—although she has shared some of the deepest longings of her heart with him, she hasn’t been entirely truthful about her past. But when Jalon shows up at her aunt’s doorstep, everything is revealed. And she can only pray he’ll forgive her for holding back the truth.
In order to reach beyond the errors of their pasts, both Phoebe and Jalon must put their faith in something—or Someone—bigger than either of them could pen.
