The Promise of a Letter (An Amish Letters Novel) by Kathleen Fuller

Book Description:  Roman is on the verge of leaving the Amish ways. Feeling confined by the strict rules, he longs to do something more with his life. But when things don’t go as planned, Roman’s prospects outside of the community dwindle. Upon learning that his beloved grandmother has died and left a letter urging him to reconcile with his brother in Birch Creek, Roman decides to return home. But he doesn’t plan to stay for long.
Leanna Chupp has always made her own way in her small community of Birch Creek. Though some may call her unconventional—strange, even—Leanna is happy. Her unique outlook on life has meant she’s never had many suitors pursuing courtship, which Leanna doesn’t mind. She is content being single.
But when Roman and Leanna find themselves working together again, everything changes. Though neither fit squarely within the strictures of the Amish faith, their differences could be the very thing to help them form a deeper connection to their community and to each other. The question remains: will this strengthening bond be enough to make Roman stay for good?

My Thoughts:  Ahhh!  What better way to end summer vacation than reading a book authored by Kathleen Fuller.  
this is the second book in the Amish Letters.  
I love when an author continues with the same people that were in the previous book.  It makes the story seem so real.  But this can be read as a stand alone since the story is different than the first.
Two awkward adults, Roman and Leanna seem to be world's apart at times but, yet, they are attracted to each other.  And, of course, living in the same area, Birch Creek, they bump into each other.
With quite a few issues going on in their lives and their families lives one begins to wonder if they will ever proclaim their love for each other.
I loved the story.  But then again I love Kathleen Fuller's stories!
