Letters to Katie by Kathleen Fuller
Kathleen “Katie” Yoder loved Johnny Mullet since she was a little girl. Johnny is her best friend’s, Mary Beth, brother. Johnny, however, has never given Katie the time of day. Katie has been waiting for Johnny for years and spending her time working at the local Amish restaurant. One day a young man sits at her table and begins to take interest in her. This young man has to leave town but begins to send letters to Katie. Meanwhile, an event happens to Katie wiping out some of her memory and changing things for Johnny.
This is the third novel in the Middlefield Family series. Although this novel is the third in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Letters to Katie was an enjoyable read and in the same format as most Amish fiction. From the beginning the reader can feel that the character Isaac was introduced to instill jealousy in Johnny. The secondary plot between Cora and Sawyer was just as compelling. Sawyer’s decision to stay in the Amish life even though Cora’s offer could set him up for life while still valuing family over everything.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys Amish novels. While it does not break any molds of the Amish books, it is still an enjoyable read.
Note: I received a copy of this title from publisher, Thomas Nelson through their book sneeze program.
