Courting Cate Wins My Heart

I read the most delightful book the other day. And in one day, too! Never had I been so thankful to be stuck in a lobby while a mechanic repaired my car. 🙂

Leslie Gould has always been one of my favorite writers, but she’s hit a new stride lately with her Amish novels. I’ve always said I don’t read Amish, but–as I’ve found with all other genres I say I don’t read–what I love is a well-told story. She does it again with her new release, Courting Cate, the first in The Courtships of Lancaster County series.

I have a degree in Literature–and one in Math, though that doesn’t seem too important to mention right now–so I studied almost everything Shakespeare. Knowing this was a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew, I found myself giggling, searching, flipping through pages to find out how Leslie would tie the theme and plot points of such a complicated story into a book about a “simple” people. It was a delightful book in the truest sense of the word–each page, each twist, filled me with delight and put a smile on my face.

Which isn’t to say it was a light or fluffy read. By the end, I had reexamined the way I treat the people I love and vowed to be an even better wife to my wonderful husband. I highly recommend this book. Buy your copy now, as I bet this will go on your keeper shelf!
