Letters to Katie by Kathlee Fuller

From the publisher: "Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullet since the two were children, but he’s never returned her affections.
Now Johnny is trying to forge a new life for himself by purchasing a farm and building a business of his own. But times are tough, and he soon learns that he can’t take anything for granted—especially Katherine.
Before Johnny has the opportunity to tell Katherine his true feelings, she’s struck by a serious illness. While Katherine struggles to recall recent memories of Johnny, a surprise visitor comes back into her life, claiming that his letters speak of a history and a future for the two of them.
With the two men vying for her attention and her memory still elusive, Katherine has never felt so torn. But will the solutions to both Johnny’s and Katherine’s problems lie in places neither one has ever considered?"

This book is a Middlefield family novel and there are two other books in this series as well as other books that talk about Middlefield.  I have not read anything else by Kathleen Fuller.  That being said some of the story lines seemed confusing.  There were a lot of characters and dynamics happening in the book.  If a reader had read other Middlefield books this might have been interesting and fun to read about--however, to only read this book, it made it a bit confusing.  Also, the story about Katherine and Johnny felt like 1/3 of the story instead of being the main story told.  

I appreciated the idea that both of Johnny and Katherine had to let go of their own ways and let God lead.  That is something we can all learn from.

I found it a bit hard to believe that the other two men who showed interest in Katherine were the leering, angry type and only Johnny was good.  That being said, I was rooting for Johnny.

If you want a light-hearted read this could be a good book for you.  And if you have read the other Middlefield family books and enjoyed them then this would be a good book to pick up.

I received this book free from Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.
