Publisher's Summary

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.

Unusual cadence

The reader had a very unusual cadence. For example she paused in unusual places and emphasized phrases in an atypical way . For example when saying school board she emphasized the word board instead of the word school as is typical. I found this distracting.
