Her fingertips brushed against something else in the box of doilies. She lifted a bundle of letters, neatly tied with a thin red ribbon . . .
Ivy Yoder hasnt heard from John King in over a year. She knows its time to let go of the idea that they will one day marry, but shes humiliated to be one of the oldest single women in her Amish community of Birch Creek. When quirky Cevilla Schlabach asks her to help clean out an attic, Ivy is grateful for the distraction.
Noah Schlabach isnt from Birch Creek, or even Ohio. His job as an auctioneer takes him around the country and away from a typical Amish life, but he still remains devoted to his family. So when his aging aunt asks him to help clean out her attic, he agrees. Plus, who knows what curious items he might find up there?
As Noah and Ivy work side by side, they come across a different kind of treasure: a packet of letters written during the Korean War. Soon they are swept up in the story of two young people falling in loveeven as they remain determined not to fall in love themselves.
Words from the Heart is a moving story of lost love letters, fragile fears, and the beauty of taking another step forward.

RobbyeFayeAnniston, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Words From the HeartApril 18, 2018RobbyeFayeAnniston, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Cevilla Schlabach, Noah Schlabach (Cevilla's nephew) and Ivy Yoder are the three main characters in Kathleen Fuller's 3rd installment of Amish Letters.
Ivy and Noah had both been hurt in the past and danced around the outskirts of friendship with each other. Cevilla had promised God she wouldn't interfere, but she had a hard time keeping out of their budding friendship. I loved how she would look at the ceiling and sheepishly address God about keeping her nose out of their business.
I really enjoyed Cevilla; she was older, wiser, quirkier and just plain fun to get to know. However, her life had not been easy or without sacrifice. I enjoyed the way Cevilla brought Noah and Ivy together, and even though the story has a lot of depth to it, it was fun to read, too.
As with the other two books, Words from the Heart, can be a stand-alone novel. It was nice though, to be able to catch up with characters from the other two stories, Written in Love and The Promise of a Letter.
Kathleen Fuller's stories all resonate with the love of God, healing, and restoration. She does a wonderful job of character development, leaving you eager to turn the page in order to know more about her endearing characters.
I received this book from the Fiction Guild. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.
MagisterMichiganAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Heartfelt Words Bridge the YearsApril 14, 2018MagisterMichiganAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have loved all Kathleen Fuller's books set in Birch Creek, but this one was the best. I finished it in just one day! It was so easy to care about her main characters Ivy and Noah, two "platonic" friends from different towns who seem to have missed their chance at love and marriage. When they find a bundle of old love letters while cleaning out an attic, they begin to realize that friendship may be the best foundation for romantic love. Just what Noah's elderly Aunt Cevilla had hoped would happen..though she never guessed HER past would be the catalyst to nudge them in that direction (what a spunky old meddler she is!). Then the diagnosis of an incurable disease threatens to obstruct their budding relationship even more than the miles that separate them. I loved to see how a new set of letters comes into play as Noah and Ivy struggle to find and follow God's will for their lives.
I received a copy of this last book in the Amish Letters series from the publisher via The Fiction Guild, and was not required to post a review.
Cynthia5 Stars Out Of 5BeautifulApril 13, 2018CynthiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. I was not required to give a favorable review. This was another wonderful story from Kathleen. This was a way for two people who have had bad endings to past relationships come together as friends to help Noah's aunt go through things from her step-mother during her time as a English person before coming back to her Amish community. Each had helped each other but also let Ivy see that she has a chance for finding love through reading Ceville's letter from a young man prior to her coming back. I loved had the relationship grew through being friends and talking.
Anna MaeAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Words from the Heart by Kathleen FullerApril 12, 2018Anna MaeAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have a number of Kathleen Fuller's books and enjoy her style of writing. This is an interesting Amish tale of a sweet godly little old lady, Cevilla Schlabach, in the role of matchmaker for her great nephew, Noah, and a local Amish lass, Ivy Yoder. They both loved Cevilla dearly and though knowing her intent went along with her attempts to put them together. The twists and turns in the lives of her characters make for a special story.
The story revolves around an attic Cevilla wants them to clear out, full of interesting boxes full of stuff to be gone through. Noah and Ivy had no intention of falling in love as they were quite content with their lives but humored Cevilla.
In going through the dusty old attic, they came across an interesting bundle of old letters dating back to the Korean War.
Enough! Pick up a copy and read it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you Fiction Guild for another great read by Kathleen Fuller.
Cocoroos5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!April 9, 2018CocoroosQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love how old letters in an attic tell the story of love during the Korean war. The characters were interesting and the setting was well described. The Amish Letters series of books never fails to satisfy the reader.
