Overview

When a postal error creates pen pals of two young Amish people, can they put behind their past mistakes to see the bright future God has written for them?

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 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. But when Jalon suggests they meet, 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.

Fuller (A Love Made New) steps away from the traditionally idealized life of the Amish to focus more on the ideas of redemption and grace as they pertain to flawed yet loving individuals in her latest inspirational romance. Phoebe Bontrager is a young Amish woman with secrets. She and four-year-old Malachi are staying with her Aunt Bertha for a time when a letter from Jalon Chupp finds its way to Phoebes hands. Thus begins an epistolary relationship between two people filled with desperate loneliness. Jalon, who lives in Birch Creek, Ohio, has been suffering from guilt for years over an accident that gravely injured his cousin. Then he and Phoebe begin their correspondence. The connection they forge simply reinforces his faith in God and the knowledge that Gods plan is in play. Yet the secrets both have had to keep in order to protect others may be the very things that tear them apart. Fullers refreshing portrayal of the Amish as complex, flawed children of God adds deeper dimension to a plot already filled with lovable characters and an artfully crafted world that draws readers in and invites them to stay. Passion and joy for God and the written word are evident throughout the book, woven into a heartwarming invitation to share the love. Agent: Tamela Hancock Murray, Steve Laube Agency. (Mar.)
