Letters to Katie

Book description:  "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."

My review:  Another great book to read!  I enjoyed following the lives of both characters.  Johnny's thought processes were not unusual, and Katherine's responses were typical.  I think that is what made this book so real.  As I read, I almost felt as though this were a true story, but the amnesia and the man named Isaac kept it from truly feeling that way.  I do think that both of those parts added to the story though without seeming like  they didn't belong.  The ending was a bit unusual but very appropriate!  I thought it was a perfect ending to a wonderful story.  This book also continued the story of Laura and Sawyer, who were the main characters of a previous book by this author.  I enjoyed catching up on their story as well.  If you enjoy reading about the Amish, this is one you will want to read.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
