My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Spring for Susannah” by Catherine Richmond was a refreshing read, and, for this author’s debut read, awesome! Susannah has lost her parents, and has no more home…as a result, she decides to accept a marriage proposal from her pastor’s brother who lives hundreds of miles away from her home. Upon arrival, she’s not sure what to expect, but she soon finds out…her husband, Jesse Mason, is handsome, hard-working and loves God…and, to Susannah’s surprise, head-over-heels for her, and this scares her to pieces because she thinks she’s all wrong, and the way Jesse want her to be – how he wants to be able to talk to her, share opinions want her, and find out what she needs and wants is so against what she was brought up to believe.
Nevertheless, after a while, Jesse is able to break her exterior and get Susannah to lighten up, and, when she does, she finds that not able does she want Jesse Mason, but she needs him…he’s shown her a way of life that she did not believe was possible before, and, through introducing her to God, helped her find herself…a self that she can like and love, and doesn’t believe is so bad.
I thought this book was really good and has so much potential; however, I became confused during the part of the book when Jesse left to find work…I know that this probably had to happen for her to get to her “real” self, but was still a little off from the rest of the story.
Despite this, overall, “Spring for Susannah” was awesome, and I would definitely recommend it to other fans of Christian Romance. I also look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
I give it 4 stars.
