Spring for Susannah

Today I’ll be reviewing Spring for Susannah by Catherine Richmond
Susannah is desperate. Her family just died and she has lost all of her stuff because of unpaid devts ger father wracked up unbeknownst to her. So when her vest friend tells her of her brother-in-law, they become pen pals and eventually get married.
There’s just one problem, she’s shy and her husband, Jesse, isn’t. He wants a wife to love and talk to, but what he gets is a shy woman who doesn’t like to talk particually about herself. Now Jesse has to crack the shell that she built around herself before he can have a wife that will fully love him and God.
Catherine Richmond has a gift of making the flatest, yellowest land in the country look beautiful with her words and let me say, living in a soddy has never sounded better. Though, it still doesn’t sound great.
The characters are realistic and deep, and when they suffer or rejoice, you do too.
This is obviously a romance. Most romances I have reviewed I complain that the romance was too soft with no passion, but this book has too much. There’s a specific line in Christian romance that you shouldn’t cross, this book is the closest I’ve seen to that line. The author describes things a little too much and put things in there that would work just fine without it in there.
The Christian aspect in this book is perfect. Not too much and not too little. You see Susannah and some others grow in there faith. You see them trust God when they need it most.
Overall, it’s a good romance, but the romance is too heavy and makes this book something that I wouldn’t recommend for any child or teen. I give it three and a half out of five.
