Up to now, the only books of hers that I have read and reviewed have been short novellas inside collaborations/ novella collections and they simply did not prepare me for the awesomeness of her writing!

A Faith of Her Own by Kathleen Fuller was one of the best Amish novels I have read in a while. I loved the sweet story that Kathleen masterly crafted. Jeremiah and Anna Mae were characters that really seemed to come to life for me. I have to admit that until about a year ago Amish stories were not my cup of tea but lately I have been finding several authors who have really got me hooked and Kathleen is now one of them. A Faith of Her Own is a beautifully written story about faith and God's plan. ...more

This is my favorite book I have read from Kathleen so far. I have read most of her books from all her Amish series. After reading Hide and Secret, I wondered if Kathleen would write about what happened with Anna Mae, Jeremiah and Amos. I was intrigued when I read the first chapter and couldn’t stop reading.
I really enjoyed reading this book it's one of the best Amish books I have read I think this one tops them all..It was a joy th read and how God works in mysterious ways.and how Annie Maes and Jeremiah love for each other progressed. And all the characters in this book I could not put this book down I will look forward to reading more Amish books from this author.
