Roman thought he would be very content once he left the Amish community behind, what he did not count on was that the English world was not quite the world he thought it would be either, now he is lost, should he stay or should he go back?
Now Leanna and Roman are working together again and things have changed, neither one knowing how or why, Roman has never had a friend and although he wants to make things right he has no idea how to go about it. Leanna has never thought about having a Mann in her life so this is new territory for her, but she thinks she could get use to it.
Kathleen Fuller has done a fantastic job this book shows unconditional love and true faith that if you believe and take the first step you will be meet on the other side. A simple gift of a letter can change the course of your life if you take the time to write it or read it. Take the time to read this book and book 1 Written in Love and keep watching for book 3 Words from the Heart, which will be out in February 2018
Leanna and Roman are both odd ducks. Leanna is a bit of a tomboy and is not good at what women in Amish society are expected to do (i.e., cooking). She works for Daniel, who (if I recall correctly) is a carpenter, and a couple of busy-bodies are spreading rumors that she and Daniel are having an affair. Daniel fires her, and she initially thinks it was because she read a note that she was not supposed to read.
Roman is a creative person, one who excels at coming up with ideas and drawing technical designs. He does not have a whole lot of discipline with hands-on work, though. Years before, he left the community. His dream is to get a degree at a college, and he wrote the college a letter. Because he left, he and Daniel are estranged from each other. When he learns that his grandmother has died, he returns home, as his grandmother encouraged him to become reconciled with his brother. We learn in the course of the book that their parents were rather cold and did not show affection.
Other things happen in the course of the book. Daniel is injured. Barbara is pregnant and loses the baby. Karen and Adam are each waiting for the other to make the first move.
I read this book over the course of two months, a little each day. It was an enjoyable book. Roman does a lot of growing up, and Leanna gets to observe this because she was acquainted with him before he left. Roman and Leanna were also characters for whom I wanted to root, as they were underdogs, in a sense. The book had enough going on that it was not boring. And its ending set the stage for the next book of the series.
