The Love Letters Book Review by Beverly Lewis



Cover Art
Marlena needed time to let things sink in. It was beyond her how all this could possibly work out--adding the care of an infant to her daily routine. Fortunately, it would just be until Luella returned home from the hospital and was stronger.
No more than a couple weeks, surely.

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 Thoughts:

This is another hearth warming novel by Beverly Lewis. This story had a unique message throughout the pages of lose and sacrificing oneself own life to help another person. How do you come to terms with “what ifs” in life and those regrets that you thought you still had time to redeem? It is also a love story but, not your typical boy meets girl.

There are so many interesting characters in this story that I can’t honestly say whom I liked the best. Usually, one character stands out to me but, not within these pages.

Marlene was searching for what she really believed about God and whether she could have an intimate relationship with the One Creator. It would go against everything she knows about the Ordnung. Her doing so could bring an end to her relationship with her beau back home. Marlene dedication to her family and her sisters small infant is heartfelt.

Then you have Small Jay in which was a big heart tug for me as I have a 12 year old daughter like him. He had a heart of gold and looked at everything in a different childlike way. He has a pure heart and relationship with the Lord that we can’t begin to understand.

Boston was also an intriguing character a man who doesn’t know how he got to where he is. The only thing he has is a bag of love letters and his faithful dog. Yet, he is a man of much wisdom despite his lack of memories. He brings healing to a family that needs to come together. A father that needed to see and except that God gave him something more precious in Small Jay.

So many other characters that just melted my heart in this story and the plot was interesting from the first page. This is a stand-alone story that you don’t need to read the books just like all of Beverly Lewis books.

Thank you for another wonderful story. This story ended with a wonderful conclusion. I look forward Beverly Lewis’s next book.

Bethany House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. In no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
