Enter below for a chance to win a copy of Kathleen Fuller’s Words from the Heart!
What was your favorite book as a child?
This won’t surprise anyone—the Little House books, particularly Farmer Boy. I loved the description of farm life in that book. Plus, the food—oh, the food! I also liked that Almanzo was a little rebellious. He was a good boy, but he had trouble following some of the rules (I can relate!). My second favorite in the series was These Happy Golden Years, because that was about Laura and Almanzo’s romance.
What book did you read that made you want to become an author?
There are two—The Last Sin Eater and Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers. I had never heard of Christian fiction before I read those books, and when I did I started reading all the Christian fiction I could find. Redeeming Love is still my favorite book of all time. I can’t remember how many times I’ve read it.
What was the last book you read, just for fun?
Engaged in Trouble, by Jenny B. Jones. She’s a favorite author of mine—I’ve read all her books! She can’t write fast enough for me.
What books are currently on your nightstand?
Okay, I’m going to answer this honestly: Treat Your Own Neck by Robin McKenzie. It’s a great book if you have neck problems like me. Now, on my Kindle I’m currently reading several books: The Case for Creation by Lee Strobel, Hearing God by Dallas Willard, and Now You’re Speaking my Language by Gary Chapman.
What upcoming release are you looking most forward to?
The next Jenny B. Jones book (hint, hint, Jenny!).
More about Words from the Heart
Her fingertips brushed against something else in the box of doilies. She lifted a bundle of letters, neatly tied with a thin red ribbon . . .
Ivy Yoder hasn’t heard from John King in over a year. She knows it’s time to let go of the idea that they will one day marry, but she’s humiliated to be one of the oldest single women in her Amish community of Birch Creek. When quirky Cevilla Schlabach asks her to help clean out an attic, Ivy is grateful for the distraction.
Noah Schlabach isn’t from Birch Creek, or even Ohio. His job as an auctioneer takes him around the country and away from a typical Amish life, but he still remains devoted to his family. So when his aging aunt asks him to help clean out her attic, he agrees. Plus, who knows what curious items he might find up there?
As Noah and Ivy work side by side, they come across a different kind of treasure: a packet of letters written during the Korean War. Soon they are swept up in the story of two young people falling in love—even as they remain determined not to fall in love themselves.
Words from the Heart is a moving story of lost love letters, fragile fears, and the beauty of taking another step forward.
Kathleen Fuller is a best-selling author of Amish fiction. Also a wife, mother, crafter, coffee addict, football fan, and chocolate aficionado.
