    A Great Start to New Seies

    Published by Janet Putney on Apr 24, 2023

    This is the first book in Wanda Brunstetter 's new series The Friendship Letters. Vic and Eleanor suffered a tragedy and instead of drawing them closer; it instead pulls them apart due to the way they handle it. Vic turned to alcohol to ease his guilt rather then turning to his wife, his family or especially his faith. But after almost losing everything, Vic realizes he has a problem and gets the help he needs. I love the interaction between Eleanor and her friend Dorsett and her mother in law. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    Letters of trust

    Published by Bluegrass Baby on Apr 02, 2023

    Such a heartwarming, touching story filled with compassion by those seeking to help others who are less fortunate. The book is inspiring and shows just how much people may often need help, but the true help comes in having faith and trust in God. Kim Vogel Sawyer did an amazing job with the writing of this book. I highly recommend it. All words and opinions are my own. I was given a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.

    Wonderful Amish Fiction!

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Mar 21, 2023

    Wanda E. Brunstetter is best known for her books about the Amish but this may be one of the most relevant books that she's ever written! Letters of Trust tackles the topics of depression and alcoholism, two subjects that are often unseen in Amish fiction. Eleanor and Vic Lapp find themselves facing overwhelming struggles and Eleanor's comfort comes in the form of the correspondence that she shares with her best friend who lives in another town. She is able to share in her letters the thoughts that she can't tell others, and Doretta Schwartz responds with support, friendship, and prayers. The letters between these two friends truly become letters of trust! Brunstetter shares a moving story that shows how alcoholism affects the whole family. She stresses the need for understanding and compassion and reminds us that faith, prayer, and forgiveness are necessary tools for everyone! Letters of Trust is a beautiful story and a must-read for all who enjoy Amish Christian fiction. I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation or a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

    Letters of Trust

    Published by Karen Marie Hoth on Feb 28, 2023

    My favorite author, Wanda Brunstetter, has written another awesome Amish novel. She has a way in her writing that you can't put the book down until you finish. This novel about alcoholism shows that any family may have to deal with this disease. What led newlyweds Eleanor and Vic to have to deal this disease? When one stops praying and loses faith in God, nothing in life goes well. Can't wait until noon 2, Letters of Comfort, comes out in August 3023.
