About The Book: 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
About The Author: Just the facts(from her website)…I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, grew up
in Little Rock, Arkansas, and now make my home in beautiful Geneva, Ohio. I’ve
been married to James for 15 wonderful years (really, they have been
wonderful!) We have three terrific children, three dogs, and an overwhelmed
cat. We have also raised cattle, pigs, and chickens at various times over the
years. We would have gone into the goat business, but I had to draw the line
somewhere. I started writing in 2000, and published my first short story a year
later. Since then I have authored several short stories, novellas, novels, and
have done a lot of freelance non-fiction work. I have also worked as an editor.
I have a Masters degree in Special Education, emphasis on teaching the blind and
visually impaired, and a Bachelors in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I
have taught all age groups ranging from age 4 to age 18. A few of my favorite
things: my relationship with Christ, chocolate (of course!), autumn, a
satisfying book, good friends, a sense of humor, people who don’t take
themselves seriously, haunting melodies, NFL football, and did I mention
My Thoughts On The Book: This is the third novel in the Middlefield Family series and although this novel is
the third in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Letters to Katie was an
enjoyable read and follows the same format as most Amish fiction. From the beginning
the reader will find jealousy, love, religious struggles, disappointment, and the Amish beliefs all tied up in the plot of the novel. I would recommend
this novel to anyone who enjoys Amish novels. It was an easy read and could be read in one sitting.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Book Sneeze. Thomas Nelson's review program for bloggers, Blogging for Books. I was not required to write a positive review. All they asked for was an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
