Book Review - "Letters to Katie"

"Letters to Katie," A Middlefield Family novel,  is the latest Amish novel written by Kathleen Fuller and this book in a winner! 

Book Description from the publisher:

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.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book as it is filled with characters who the reader can easily relate to and Kare good lessons throughout as well as a sweet romance.  Katherine and Johnny have been focused on what they want in life and have lost focus of having God as the number one in their life and looking to Him to guide them.  I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop in the midst of distractions and miscommunications.  This is a touching Amish romance that will encourage you to make sure your priorities and focus are right in your own lives and leaving you happy for the characters at the end of the story.
