letters to katie

Everything changed between them the first time he called her Katie.

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?

My Comments:  Johnny’s feelings somewhat confused me throughout this story.  I didn’t really understand how he was supposed to feel about Katherine.  It came together for me, however, as I continued to read the story.  I never knew before that meningitis could cause irreversible short-term memory loss.  Memory loss is frightening to me and I felt so sorry for Katherine.  I enjoyed this sweet read by Kathleen Fuller as I enjoy all of her Amish stories.  I love how Katherine’s mother is so protective of her, although at times that also frustrated and annoyed me while reading.  I guess you could say I was engaged and interacted with this story while reading.  Thank you NetGalley for another great book to review!
