It is so easy to get stuck on rules and appearances that you miss finding grace.
Such a sweet story of grace in the midst of turmoil. The narration begins with a letter that was sent in error to Phoebe’s aunt house. Phoebe in a letter returns the letter to Jalon and with a sweet letter, a relationship begins. Each of them hiding in pain of shame and regret. The letters turn into something more when they both realize how important these letters are to them. Jalon takes the plunge and expresses his feelings in a letter hoping that those feelings will be returned. However, when Phoebe does not respond, Jalon with the encouragement of a friend, goes to Phoebe’s aunt to check on her. This meeting starts a friendship of learning to trust in love and the love of God.
Each of them dealing with past sins and hurt to move forward to love again. A real do over! The relationships were tender and raw has Phoebe and Jalon walk in faith. It was easy to fall in love with the characters as they struggle with faith and fear. Loved this one!
