Kathleen Fuller has done it again! Letters to Katie is a heart touching tale of secrets, unrequited love, family struggles and relationships. This book is part of the Middlefield Family series. We are reacquainted with characters from the previous two books. It was nice to see them again. Here’s what the publisher says about it:
“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.”
Of course, as with most romance novels, we always have a happy ending, so this one was no surprise. But the journey to get there was very engaging. Actually, there could have been a couple of endings that would have still qualified as happy, so we aren’t really sure which is going to come about. I liked the dialog between Katherine and Johnny. The tension between Sawyer and his englisher grandmother was portrayed in a very respectful manner. Will they learn to accept each other?
Fuller also gives a glimpse of how some unscrupulous people try to take advantage of the Amish, who they perceive as uneducated and easily fooled.
You’ll have to read it to find out how the letters fit in to the story. But I will tell you it is very sweet.
