Publisher's Description

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 hasn’t heard from John King in over a year. She knows it’s time to let go of the idea that they will one day marry, but she’s 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 isn’t 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 love—even 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.

    Words from the Heart by Kathleen Fuller is the third An Amish Letters Novel. Ivy Yoder has not heard from John King in a year. She received one letter from him written right after she returned home. He broke his promise and her heart. Ivy must now move forward with her life and needs a something to occupy her mind. Ivy arrives home from visiting with friends to find Noah Schlabach on her doorstep. Noah is an auctioneer and antique specialist. His great aunt, Cevilla Schlabach has asked that Noah and Ivy clean out her attic. She insists that they do it together. Noah knows Cevilla is up to something, but he is eager to see what is in the boxes. You never know what treasure they will find. The pair slowly go through the boxes and get to know each other during the sorting process (finding numerous doilies and old magazines). One of the last boxes they explore contains some damaged doilies and a packet of letters written during the Korean War. Noah and Ivy get drawn into the story of two people (Bunny and CJ) in love. Ivy develops feelings for Noah, but she is afraid of getting her heart broken again. Noah used to be satisfied with his work, but now he feels that something is missing. Cevilla is certain that Noah and Ivy are meant for each other. She has arranged for them to spend time together, but the rest is up to these two very stubborn individuals. Will they learn from the past and embrace life? Can Ivy move forward and find love with Noah? Will Noah give up his roaming way to settle down in Birch Creek?

    Words from the Heart is a touching romantic story and my favorite book in this series. I find it refreshing to read stories that have little to no violence, intimate scenes (just kissing), and no foul language. I found the book to contain good writing and a nice flow which made Words from the Heart was easy to read and enjoy. Words From the Heart can be read alone, but I suggest reading all the book in An Amish Letters series. It will familiarize you with the characters from the previous books which are present in Words from the Heart. I appreciate the author updating readers on what has happened to the people from Written in Love and The Promise of a Letter. I like the characters in this story especially Cevilla Schlabach. She is a delightful older woman that is happy with her life and the choices she has made (spunky, quirky). Many of her scenes have me smiling and chuckling (especially when she decides to attend the school board meeting of which she is not a member). The author provides the right amount of background and detail on the main characters along with supporting cast. Ms. Fuller even brought CJ, one of the letter writers, alive with her words. The Christian elements are present throughout and it enhances the story. Prayer, forgiveness, trusting God and faith are a few of the Christian themes in the book. While the romance element is predictable, it is sweet and heartfelt. It was lovely to watch their (Noah and Ivy) feelings grow for each other over the course of the book (while they each tried to resist). The additional elements that Kathleen Fuller added to the story gave it depth and complexity (upcycling, items they found in the boxes, Noahs symptoms for example). These items made for a richer story. Reading Words from the Heart is a satisfying way to idle away a Saturday afternoon.

    Words from the Heart takes us back to Birch Creek just in time for Valentines Day! No, I dont mean that this book is about Valentines Day. It would make a sweet romantic read in honor of the holiday.

    This was my favorite book out of the series and its largely because this one included a genealogical mystery! Noah and Ivy have discovered love letters written during the Korean Waran era that I admit I dont know much about. But, I loved the letters and wanted to know where they came from!

    Noah and Ivy were both enjoyable, albeit sometimes stubborn characters that I couldnt help but love. Their difference in stature made them seem incompatible and yet I was rooting for them from the very first chapter. But it was Aenti Cevilla who stole my heart. That little old woman was quirky and quite the little Amish firecracker. I loved her!

    This book was a feel-good romancea quick, lighthearted read that I really needed.

    One interesting concept about this book is that Noah suffers from Menieres Disease, a condition that I didnt know much about until my doctor mentioned that she suspects that I suffer from it. It was so interesting to me to read about a character with a chronic illness and it made me feel connected to him. Perhaps that is silly but its nice to be able to relate to someone.

    Im super excited to read more from this author and Im pleased to know that members of the Birch Creek community will be revisited in Kathleens new series titled, The Amish Brides.

    This book was provided to me by the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. All opinions are my own.

    This was a captivating novel! It is the third in the Amish Letters series, but can be read as a stand alone novel, too. I could not turn the pages quickly enough to find out what happened with these two characters! Their romance definitely bloomed toward the second half of the story, and not in the typical way. There was some great romantic tension between Noah and Ivy, as well as other issues they had to overcome.

    I really enjoyed they way letters played a part in this story, as they did in the other books of the series as well. I liked getting to know more about Cevilla and seeing how she and Ivy and Noah interacted throughout the book. This has been a very enjoyable series, which I definitely recommend. It is also connected to the Amish of Birch Creek series, another set of books that was extremely enjoyable.

    (4.5 stars)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    WORDS FROM THE HEART by Kathleen Fuller. Book 3 "Amish Letters"

    Having read the first two was delighted there was another in this great series. Letters when written held so much for a person, not just in communication, also of hopes and dreams. When Ivy finds the letters,

    it fills her of what another person and that love was written about. Though cleaning out the attic may have been a scheme to match make these two, will it come about. These were a delightful, enjoyable, heart warmer stories . Of forgiveness, not losing hope when dreams are disappointed. Given ARC by Net Galley for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

    In this novel, the author has us reading past and present letters, and they sure are from the heart. The title of this series is Amish Letters, and as weve seen in the previous two books there is a bit of romance in the words.

    Surprises sure abound in this third book in this series, and I was quickly page turning, from Ivy never receiving promised letters to the old letters found in the attic, and then the passive friendly letters she and Noah start to share after their attic cleaning.

    We are also reunited with other dear friends from the past books, and yes this one can be read alone, but youll soon want more, and these are the perfect choice.

    Wait until you meet Aunt Civilla, and watch her make her way to the school board meeting, how who would turn her away. Made me smile, and think with age comes wisdom, at least as far as she is concerned.

    Wonderful character and a great story you dont want to miss!

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
