Letters to Katie

Author: Kathleen Fuller
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
May 2013
ISBN: 978-1595547774
Genre: Amish

Everything changed between them the first time he called her Katie.

Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullet since the two were children, but he’s never returned her affections.

Now Johnny is trying to forge a new life for himself by purchasing a farm and building a business of his own. But times are tough, and he soon learns that he can’t take anything for granted—especially Katherine.

Before Johnny has the opportunity to tell Katherine his true feelings, she’s struck by a serious illness. While Katherine struggles to recall recent memories of Johnny, a surprise visitor comes back into her life, claiming that his letters speak of a history and a future for the two of them.

With the two men vying for her attention and her memory still elusive, Katherine has never felt so torn. But will the solutions to both Johnny’s and Katherine’s problems lie in places neither one has ever considered?

LETTERS TO KATIE is part of Ms. Fuller’s Middlefield Family series. There are references that occurred in the first two books, Treasuring Emma and Faithful to Laura, so if readers hadn’t read them, they should pick them up first, or they might be confused.  It had been awhile since I read the first two, but I was able to remember most of the events.

LETTERS TO KATIE is an easy read. I enjoyed getting to know Katie and Johnny, though wondered how she could be attracted to the other two men who are portrayed as more unkind.  The book was kind of slow moving, but it did show how people must let God guide their lives and not try to do it themselves.  If you like Amish fiction, you’ll probably enjoy LETTERS TO KATIE. $15.99. 320 pages. 3. 5 stars, rounded up to 4.
