Publisher's Description

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

    This review gives more insight than just "it was/wasn't a good book" or "this is/isn't a must read". While I try not to give too much away, sometimes it's difficult to write about the story and have it not be revealing.

    Katherine (Katie) Yoder has been trying to get her affections and thoughts away from Johnny Mullet for years. It has caused her nothing but heartache since he has never returned the same feelings towards her. When the story begins she finally decides that she has to move on and away from Johnny.

    Meanwhile, Johnny has been trying to prove that he can get along on his own. He has bought a house and plans on running a horse farm on the property. He also has something very special in mind. Everything seems to be going as planned until Katherine gets very ill and develops short term memory loss. Both Katherine and Johnny's worlds begin to fall apart. But they soon discover that God's plans for their lives are far better than their own.

    In another storyline in the book, Cora Easley is trying to convince her grandson Sawyer to take over her prosperous business. Sawyer lives in the same town as Katherine and Johnny. His adoptive parents are Amish and he plans and joining the church himself. Cora is uppity and very pushy and she is hiding a secret. I didn't read the other books in the series so I didn't know who Cora was at first. As I read more I was filled in on what went on with the characters in the previous books. But I think it would be better to have read the previous books to enjoy the story more.

    It is very touching how Cora sees Sawyer's Amish family lives out their faith. She is welcomed in their house and treated like one of the family. She is very difficult to be around until God sends so much care and love from others her way she can't help but change, even if it's only a little.

    I thought Katherine should have moved on from longing for Johnny years ago. She wasted seven years of her life on someone who didn't care for her in a romantic way.

    Katherine, Johnny, and Cora were going on with their lives without letting God be in the control. It wasn't until they put God in the equation that they understood how they should have been handling situations in their lives. But God couldn't lead them until they let him guide their steps.

    The storyline of Cora and Sawyer's relationship was better than Katie and Johnny's. I thought it was more interesting. Cora kept everyone on their toes with her rude and snobby ways. Even so, they kept loving her as God would.

    I liked reading this book enough but I think Kathleen Fuller's novellas are better reads. A few of these short stories that I enjoyed are in An Amish Wedding and An Amish Christmas.

    I received a free copy of this book from The Christian Manifesto and Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

    Have you ever had a time when you thought you knew exactly how things were going to play out in your life—but things didn't go according to your plan? Has serious illness ever changed your perspective on things? Have you ever found your answers in the most unexpected places? Then you will enjoy Letters to Katie.

    Katherine had thought since childhood that Johnny Mullet would learn to love her—but what about this handsome Isaac who has his eye on her? Johnny buys an old run down horse farm that he plans to fix up, but how will he do it without an interested investor? Katherine is sure she's found an entrance into Johnny's heart--but what happens when company shows up? Johnny finds the perfect time to tell Katherine what is on his mind, but what impact will her serious illness have on his plan?

    Too often, we try to figure it all out for ourselves. We plan, and we scheme, and we dream without regard for God's plan for our lives. "I've always put you first in my life, in my thoughts, in my heart. It's time for me to do that with God." (page 259) One of my favorite verses says it best—"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 NIV. God has a plan for our lives, and it is always in our best interest. God is on your side! A life partner, a business venture, making a large purchase, a job—God has a plan—but are we willing to pray and search out what His will is before jumping into our own plans? When we give it to God, and we let Him lead us to our decisions, sometimes He gives us the very thing we wanted all along. It is just in His timing and His way rather than our own. Sometimes it is remembering who we are in Christ that teaches us how to move forward in our own lives. Kathleen Fuller does a stellar job of unfolding this truth within the story. The story is so believable and real, that it draws you in, revealing a storyline that plays out this scriptural concept in a simple, yet profound way. This story is filled with beautiful romance, unexpected suspense, a little bit of attitude, and Godly truth.

    This story is set in the heart of Middlefield, Ohio's Amish community.

    Letters to Kate

    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.

    Did like the fact that this story was unpredictable. Katie fawns over a man who has never returned her affections. Then, when he does, it seems it might be too late. I enjoyed the fact that Katie turns to God instead of pining away after different men.

    Katherine Yoder fell love with Johnny Mullet when he gave her a push on a tire swing & brushed a leaf off of her shoulder. When she is grown she still feels love for him but he never seemed to notice her. When she becomes ill and forgets about three weeks of time (during which time Johnny had hurt her without meaning too). The doctor says she may never remember that time. Then she receives letters from another young man that she doesn't remember at all. Since he's from another town no one knows who he is and who the letters are from. Katie learns to lean on God and trust him to guide her. She refuses to see or talk to Johnny for awhile but then he sends her a letter. Can't tell you anymore or I would ruin the book. I started this book on the morning of July 4th and finished it about lunch time on July 5th. We had the cookout and family at our house on the 4th so didn't get to finish this delightful book the same day.

    This is the third in a series and there is some updates from the characters in the other two books. You can read this as a stand alone but I do recommend the other two as well. Kathleen Fuller is a well written author, her characters come alive and she shows how each grows through their faith, the help of families and friends. I think you will truly enjoy this book.

    Letters to Katie is the third book in the series and the main characters, Johnny and Katherine (Katie), explore what God really wants for them in their lives. Katie has spent years yearning for Johnny's love, and not receiving it. When Katie has health issues and ends up in the hospital with memory loss as a result, will she be able to accept Johnny's claims that he cares for her or will her heart be won by another? The author also continues Laura and Sawyer's story from the second novel and ties up that story nicely. This story confronts the issues of following your own will instead of following God's guidance. Johnny and Katie, as well as Sawyer's grandmother are prime examples of this. Letters to Katie is a good addition to the Middlefield Family Novels. I received a copy of this book free from the publisher, Thomas Nelson, through NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
