Letters to Katie
By Kathleen Fuller
Published by Thomas Nelson
This is the third book in the Middlefield Family series. The first two are: Treasuring Emma, Faithful to Laura. I didn't know this when I decided to read it. It is a very well written story but I wish I had read the first two so I could understand this one better then I did. I did still enjoy it and would recommend to to those who like reading Amish, but I think you should read the first two before this one.
Katherine is in Love with Johnny who to her doesn't seem to return her feelings. She asks God to help her move on or for Johnny to love her, but it doesn't seem to help either. Issac shows interest in her and Johnny now must hope he isn't too late.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
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.
