Review: Written in Love

Written in Love


When a postal error creates pen pals of two young Amish people, can they put behind their past mistakes to see the bright future God has written for them?

Jalon Chupp has a past he isn’t proud to claim. He’s worked hard to overcome his youthful mistakes, and he has recommitted himself to his faith. When he receives a sweet note included in a piece of misdirected mail, he can’t help but write back. Soon, the letters he receives from Phoebe are the highlights of his days, and with a hopeful heart, he suggests they meet in person.

Phoebe, too, looks forward to every single one of Jalon’s letters. Living with her overbearing aunt, Phoebe doesn’t have too much to look forward to. But when Jalon suggests they meet, she panics—although she has shared some of the deepest longings of her heart with him, she hasn’t been entirely truthful about her past. But when Jalon shows up at her aunt’s doorstep, everything is revealed. And she can only pray he’ll forgive her for holding back the truth.

In order to reach beyond the errors of their pasts, both Phoebe and Jalon must put their faith in something—or Someone—bigger than either of them could pen.

Rating: 5 stars


Written in Love, by Kathleen Fuller, is a sweet yet heartfelt story. The characters are easy to relate to, and the plot is engaging. Kathleen Fuller is a talented writer. She clearly knows how to enchant her readers like myself into her books. Having read previous books by her, I still can’t decide which one is my favorite. I would have to choose them all.

Written in Love is about two young Amish people who write to one another. Pen pals who soon fall in love…But as with life, there are things they both hide from each other. Jalcon Chupp hides his past and Phoebe isn’t very truthful to Jalcon when she wrote him. Soon, their secrets are out and fate intervenes. Both will have to rely on their faith for guidance and strength. I loved following along. These characters felt real. Their problems were easy to understand. Overall, I highly recommend Written in Love, by Kathleen Fuller, to all.
