The Love Letters // Book Review
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.
First off, I just have to say that I love the cover of this book! It makes me think of spring and I love that there's a baby on the cover. She's so adorable. :)
The Love Letters isn't my favorite book by Beverly Lewis, but it wasn't bad. The story just wasn't as exiting as some of her other works. Also I don't think that the description of the book and the title go that well together. There was also two different story lines in this book which isn't unusual for Beverly Lewis' books because the two stories always come together, but in this book it didn't really seem that the stories ever really did come together. Even though this isn't a favorite I'll probably end up re-reading it one day when I re-read other books by Beverly Lewis.
I give this book 7.5 R's out of 10
