The Love Letters

Book description:  "Marlena Wenger's life takes an unexpected turn on the day she learns she must care for her estranged sister's baby. Spending the summer in Brownstown, Pennsylvania, to assist her Mennonite grandmother, and miles from Marlena's Old Order Amish beau, she feels out of her element in nearly every respect. Yet Marlena determines to do her best and stay focused on her future, even as those hopes become drastically altered."

My review:  This is another great book by Beverly Lewis!  The title of the book is so appropriate.  Mrs. Lewis has woven different "love letters" throughout the story.  Although the book is mainly about Marlena Wenger, there are other characters with their stories intertwined  with Marlena's.  With those characters come some very weighty issues, but Mrs. Lewis did a wonderful job handling these delicate topics!  Marlena is a wonderful character, who sacrifices a lot to do what is right.  She is a marvelous example of placing others needs ahead of your own and gives the reader much to contemplate.  Loving all the characters as well as the story, I know fans of Beverly Lewis will not be disappointed with The Love Letters.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
