Ever since Anna Mae’s childhood friend Jeremiah left their Amish community, she’s questioned her own place in the Amish world. The Amish life feels as if it’s closing in on her, and with her mother trying to set her up with potential suitors, Anna Mae feels trapped in... Read More
When Jeremiah suddenly reappears in Middlefield to help his mentor, Yankee veterinarian Dr. Miller, new questions surface for Anna Mae, along with feelings she’d never fully acknowledged before.
As Anna Mae and Jeremiah rekindle their friendship, old feelings take on new meaning. Yet the question still lingers: What is God’s plan for her life? Should she stay, keeping loyal to her Amish family, or does God have a bigger plan—one that provides more freedom than she could imagine? The answers do not come easily, and the answer to God’s call may lie in different directions . . . for both of them.

A Faith of Her Own by Kathleen Fuller, © 2015
A Middlefield Amish Novel
Thomas Nelson Publisher
Includes Reading Group Guide
This is my first Middlefield visit. WoW. So enjoyed meeting these families and the trials and hardships that came their way covered by caring and faith ~ in each other and in God.
In A Faith of Her Own, Anna Mae discovers it is God she is following beyond a creed taken up. How important this is for each of us; to make Him our own. I am looking forward to the next Middlefield story and hope it continues glimpses of these families.
I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
So important to find the calling and giftings God has treasured each of us with in His own time. In each of their searchings, God revealed Truth. Longings that are filled with trust and dependence shine forth in their day-to-day lives. These are the characters in A Faith of Her Own, those who have read previous Middlefield stories will recognize: Anna Mae Shetler and her parents; David Mullet and sons Jeremiah and Amos; Bekah Yoder; Johnny and Katherine (Katie) Mullet; Caleb Mullet; Doc and Amy Miller; and Judith Hostetler, new next-door neighbor to David and Amos Mullet.
I liked how each family's struggles are revealed and the growth through the difficulties they face from the past is redeemed in their lives. Communication becomes vital after being separate and held back from each other. Choosing to be open and vulnerable brings healing in their relationships as honesty stems forth. Especially, when David Mullet breaks his silence about his feelings and he is able to move forward. So much we hold back causes others to be held captive too. A beautiful story of grace and forgiveness. Very well-written with strong characters available to be touched with love and gratitude.
Kathleen Fuller is the author of several bestselling novels, including A Man of His Word and Treasuring Emma, as well as a middle-grade Amish series, The Mysteries of Middlefield. Visit the author: Website Twitter Facebook

- Back In Middlefield by Maureen on 3/20/2015
We are back in Middlefield and in the lives of teenage friends who are now adults. There are at least three romances going on here, and one of them is having a love hate one.
Bekah and Caleb were friends as growing up, but the usual stunts and pranks of teenagers. When the book opens they appear to really dislike one another, Caleb busy on his horse farm, and Bekah helping her sister, she is married to Caleb’s brother.
Then we have Judith, a widow, and David an Amish man whose wife left him, and seems to always be in a bad mood. He is the father of Jeremiah, a former Amish and now a new Veterinary. Before he left he had been in a relationship with Anna Mae, but left her with out so much as a goodbye.
You are in for an in-depth look at the lives of these people, their ups and downs and a few really good laughs. Some very serious situations arise and the call to help goes out, will this bring everyone closer, or drive the final nail?
Will Bekah and Caleb see what is right before their eyes, or continue their hurtful journey against one another? Will Jeremiah stay in Middlefield, and become an item with Anna Mae, or at least become friends again? Also will David finally forgive his wife, and maybe welcome a new relationship with Judith?
Another great read from Kathleen Fuller and a return to Middlefield where her series the Secrets of Middlefield series was set, and a visit with some of our old friends.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
