Letters of Trust
Letters of Trust by Wanda E. Brunstetter is the beginning of The Friendship Letters. Letters of Trust is different from other Amish books that I have read. It delves into the topic of alcolhism and how it affects a person’s life as well as those close to him. I thought the story was well-written with realistic, developed characters. I enjoyed getting to know Eleanor and Vic Lapp as well as their family and friends. I admired Eleanor’s fortitude and her deep faith. She prayed often for assistance in dealing with her troubled, grief-stricken husband. The story is one that will tug at your heartstrings. It is wonderful to see how family and friends come together during the good times and the bad. Eleanor may have been reluctant to air her dirty laundry, but she had people to turn to when she needed guidance.
I enjoyed the correspondence between Eleanor
and her friend, Doretta. I like how
Eleanor created cards. She went out of her way to make them special. It is a shame that letter writing is becoming
a thing of the past. Faith is
beautifully woven into the story.
Eleanor will need her family, friends, and faith to get through this
dark time. We get to see that God is
always with us. We may not understand
His ways nor what He is trying to teach us, but the challenging situations will
make us stronger and wiser. I found
Letters of Trust to be a compelling, emotional tale. I am looking forward to reading the next book
in The Friendship Letters. Letters of Trust is a poignant tale with contented newlyweds, a dynamic dog, a deleterious
driver, a devastating death, destructive deeds, and profound prayers.
