LETTERS TO KATIE by Kathleen Fuller
Middlefield Family #3
                               



 OVERVIEW: (from Goodreads)
Everything changed between them the first time he called her Katie.
Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullet since they were children, but he never actively returned her affections. Like so many things in their world, he assumes Katherine will always be there. Once his horse farm is a success, then he will court her in earnest.
For several weeks, Katherine has been plagued by severe headaches and dizziness. While resting at home, Johnny unexpectedly visits, but when dizziness strikes, she loses consciousness. She awakens hours later in a hospital bed, unable to remember how she got there.
Seeing Katherine injured and vulnerable stirs something in Johnny, and his guilt compels him to spend time with her while she heals. Soon his heart begins to stir with questions: Does she even remember why he’d come to her house that day?
As Katherine struggles to recall recent memories of Johnny, a surprise visitor arrives in her already unsteady world—a man named Isaac who claims they had been writing letters to each other, even considering marriage, before her illness.
With two men vying for her attention and her memory still elusive, Katherine has never felt so divided. The answer may lie behind a door she never considered opening.(



Meet the Author

Kathleen Fuller is the author of several bestselling novels includingA Man of His Word and Treasuring Emma as well as a middle grade Amish series, The Mysteries of Middlefield.

REVIEW-
 In Ohio we find our friends from Middlefield loved their  old friends and spending time with them.  Even  Grandmother of Sawyer was in Ohio.  She is trying to get Sawyer to leave the Amish and Laura and take over her company in NY.  Will he do this? Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullett since they were children. He would spurn her and make jokes about her.  Is he going to wake up and grow up to realize he may be too late for Katherine Yoder?  Katherine has found a new interest, Isaac. This will make you wonder if Johnny is really too late.   Isaac wants to take her to a singing and when he has to leave town he asks her if it's alright if he writes to her.
 
The author, Kathleen Fuller lets you enjoy these sweet people through their troubles, sorrows and joys,
 I wish the courting of Katherine Yoder and Isaac had been more of a courtship.  It seems that they just meet and he is automatically smitten.  I also wish the letters  that Isaac wrote Katie were brought out a little more.  I'm sure they were private but a little of their content could have been explored. Katie's mother showed her dislike for Johnny.  I don't really know why except he is young and he treated Katie rather foolishly when they were children.  But, some mothers over react when it comes to their children, no matter how old they are.
This is a well written, tender and sweet Amish book.  The author did a good job of writing the book so you could imagine yourself there with the characters.  If you love Amish Reading then don't miss this book  LETTERS TO KATIE by Kathleen Fuller.  I promise you won't be disappointed.
 
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Sneeze on behalf of the author Kathleen Fuller for this unbiased review.
 
I would give this book 5 STARS.
