Jalon is working each and every day to overcome the mistakes of his past. Some days is it easier than others. But he is thankful for his supportive family and friends. But he is lonely.
Phoebe is also thankful for her family and the way they stood by her during the last 4 years. But when the Bishop tells her she must marry a man in her district to cover her sins, she leaves. Her aunt Bertha opens her home, but not her heart to Phoebe an her 4 year old son.
One day the post office brings a miss directed piece of mail to Phoebe and in returning it to the sender, she finds a pen pal. Over the next couple of months, Jalon and Phoebe become friends. When Phoebe suddenly stops replying to his letters, Jalon fears Phoebe is in trouble.
This is a heartwarming story of 2 broken hearted people who find love, forgiveness and acceptance. I enjoyed the story and how both Jason and Phoebe show love for those around them. I was disappointed with the negative way the Amish church leadership was displayed in this book and hope that is if very much a fictional description. This book is part of a series, but stands on its own without any problems.
