    Her fingertips brushed against something else in the box of doilies. She lifted a bundle of letters, neatly tied with a thin red ribbon . . . 
    Ivy Yoder hasn’t heard from John King in over a year. She knows it’s time to let go of the idea that they will one day marry, but she’s humiliated to be one of the oldest single women in her Amish community of Birch Creek. When quirky Cevilla Schlabach asks her to help clean out an attic, Ivy is grateful for the distraction. 
    Noah Schlabach isn’t from Birch Creek, or even Ohio. His job as an auctioneer takes him around the country and away from a typical Amish life, but he still remains devoted to his family. So when his aging aunt asks him to help clean out her attic, he agrees. Plus, who knows what curious items he might find up there? 
     As Noah and Ivy work side by side, they come across a different kind of treasure: a packet of letters written during the Korean War. Soon they are swept up in the story of two young people falling in love—even as they remain determined not to fall in love themselves. 
    Words from the Heart is a moving story of lost love letters, fragile fears, and the beauty of taking another step forward.

    THE disciples had been with Christ, and seen Him pray. They had learnt
    to understand something of the connection between His wondrous life in public,
    and His secret life of prayer. They had learnt to believe in Him as a Master in
    the art of prayer—none could pray like Him. And so they came to Him with the
    request, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’ And in after years they would have told us
    that there were few things more wonderful or blessed that He taught them than
    His lessons on prayer.
    
    And now still it
    comes to pass, as He is praying in a, certain place, that disciples who see Him
    thus engaged feel the need of repeating the same request, ‘Lord, teach us to
    pray.’ As we grow in the Christian life, the thought and the faith of the
    Beloved Master in His never-failing intercession becomes evermore precious, and
    the hope of being Like Christ in His
    intercession gains an attractiveness before unknown. And as me see Him pray,
    and remember that there is none who can pray like Him, and none who can teach
    like Him, we feel the petition of the disciples, ‘Lord, teach us to pray,’ is
    just what we need. And as we think how all He is and has, how He Himself is our
    very own, how He is Himself our life, we feel assured that we have but to ask,
    and He will be delighted to take us up into closer fellowship with Himself, and
    teach us to pray even as He prays.

    Sparkling Regency Romance from a Captivating New VoiceLady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Entering her fourth Season and approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother's old school friend, a duke--with no intention of ever sending these private thoughts to a man she's heard stories about but never met. Meanwhile, she also finds herself intrigued by Marlow, her brother's new valet, and although she may wish to break free of the strictures that bind her, falling in love with a servant is more of a rebellion than she planned. When Marlow accidentally discovers and mails one of the letters to her unwitting confidant, Miranda is beyond mortified. And even more shocked when the duke returns her note with one of his own that initiates a courtship-by-mail. Insecurity about her lack of suitors shifts into confusion at her growing feelings for two men--one she's never met but whose words deeply resonate with her heart, and one she has come to depend on but whose behavior is more and more suspicious. When it becomes apparent state secrets are at risk and Marlow is right in the thick of the conflict, one thing is certain: Miranda's heart is far from all that's at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.
