Library Journal Review

Betrayed by her fiancé, a brokenhearted Ivy Yoder returns home to Birch Creek, OH. Volunteering to help clean out a friend's attic, she discovers a stack of old letters and immerses herself in a romance from long ago. Noah Schlabach, an auctioneer of historical ephemera, is anxious to find anything of value for an upcoming sale, and his interest in the letters starts out as purely financial. But as he begins to read them, he, too, is captivated by the love story they reveal. In this third book in the "Amish Letters" series (after Written in Love and The Promise of a Letter), Fuller crafts another charming tale about a young couple learning to enjoy the present instead of living in the past. VERDICT In a style similar to Amy Clipston's, with the same attention to detail and character development that make both authors fan favorites, Fuller's latest will appeal to fans of Amish fiction with a historical bent. © Copyright 2018.
