Letters to Katie



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.
I received a complimentary copy of Letter to Katie through the Thomas Nelson Publishing Booksneeze Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review. 
Letters to Katie is the third in a series by Kathleen Fuller, one of the leading Amish Fiction authors in my opinion. I have also reviewed the first two in the series, Treasuring Emma and Faithful to Laura. Letters to Katie is a typical Amish Fiction book, and if you enjoy those you will certainly enjoy this one as well. While there is not as much action in this book as there was in Faithful to Laura, there was more of an emotional journey. This book also ties up loose ends from the second book and is a good parable for God's faithful love and how it feels to live with unrequited love as God does when his children choose not to follow him.
Bottom line, it's a good story with lovable characters. I would recommend reading the first two first to get the most out of the storyline.
