Review of Kathleen Fuller's Faithful to Laura

Faithful to Laura
Book cover from Booksneeze.  Synopsis from
Laura’s Amish faith requires her to forgive, but she can only think of revenge.
Laura Stutzman leaves her Kentucky community for Middlefield, Ohio, with one purpose: to find Mark King, the man who pledged his love to her, then left. She can’t move on with her life until he explains why.
Sawyer Thompson wasn't born Amish, but has lived in their community for years. Now he must commit to the Amish church or return to the Yankee world. Having suffered loss at a young age, he understands Laura’s anger, but is determined to follow God’s will and forgive. As their friendship grows, Laura begins to let her guard down.
But new information surfaces about Sawyer’s past and threatens the couple’s budding relationship. Both Laura and Sawyer will need to release the anger in their hearts and forgive the people who’ve harmed them. As Laura struggles to trust God, can Sawyer remain faithful to Laura?

My Review:

I liked this book.  It wasn't the best that I had ever read, but the characters were all likable.  I got to know them in the first book in the series Treasuring Emma.  Things finally work out for everyone in this book.  Everyone ties up their loose ends from the first book.  I hope that Kathleen writes another story in this series, I want to know what happens with Laura and Sawyer and would like to know more a Katherine.  She seems to be a likable character.

I like how everyone forgave everyone in this story.  If everyone were more like the Amish in doing this, the world would be a better place.  Also when faced with the possiblity of having lots of money and power at his disposal, Sawyer makes a lifechanging decision and I think he made the right one.  He finds out that his real grandmother is alive and when she finds out about his she wants him back.  He does give her a chance.

I give this book five stars and recommend it.  Kathleen Fuller is an excellent author.

I got my copy from BookSneeze.


  1. Hi Melina,

    I'm following GFC and NetworkedBlogs. I don't see the option to follow you by email? I don't use any RSS reader though.

    Have you read any Francine Rivers's books? I love her!

    Thanks for stopping by :-)


  2. Oh! I forgot, yes you can share the Damien Echols's post here :-)

    They jury was biased, you wear black and kill a cat (which is not right or nice but it happens) and suddenly you fill the profile of a killer. I'm glad the West Memphis Three's case got cleared up. They are in their 30s so at least they still have a whole life ahead of them.

    1. Thank you, I was really interested in that story.
