Written in Love (An Amish Letters Novel) by Kathleen Fuller

Book Description:  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.

My Thoughts:  Kathleen Fuller is one of my favorite authors.  And so I was quite excited to received her newest book, Written in Love.
This story reminds me of what it was like to have a pen pal before computers came into play and when we actually received mail instead of email.  
As luck would have it, Jalon Chupp receives a letter in his mailbox that is not intended for him.  But when he reads the sweet note from Phoebe he is inspired to write back to her. So, he does write her a letter.
Phoebe lives with quite an overbearing (to put it nicely) aunt. Actually her aunt is controlling and mean.  so, Phoebe's life is a bit dull.  
Phoebe begins to look forward to Jalon's letters.  His letters become a lifeline for her.
Then Jalon wants to meet Phoebe.  Whoops!  This is where Jalon shows up, literally, on her aunt's doorstep to meet her.
Phoebe hasn't been quite as honest and up front with Jalon as he expected.
A sweet, witty story of perseverance, love and acceptance.
