Life is good on their Pennsylvania Amish farm for newlyweds Vic and Eleanor Lapp—until the day Vic’s youngest brother drowns in their pond and Vic turns to alcohol to numb the pain. Things get so bad that Vic loses his job and their marriage is coming apart. Eleanor is desperate to help her husband and writes letters to her friend, Doretta, living in Indiana for advice. The trust Eleanor places in her friend and the gentle words she receives in return are a balm for even darker days to come in this first book of The Friendship Letters series by New York Times Bestselling Author Wanda E. Brunstetter.
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.
