Spring for Susannah - a LitFuse Review

Spring For Susannah, written by Catherine Richmond, was a precious story. Susannah Underhill, the heroine in the story, finds herself alone after the death of her parents. Susannah had always felt like she wasn't good enough, felt she was plain-looking and undesirable, and she was shy. She finally decides that the only option for her is to become a mail-order bride. So she agrees to marry her pastor's brother Jesse Mason, who happens to live in the Dakota Territory. She boards a train and when she arrives at her destination, she finds that there is nothing there but a train platform. She believes she's there alone, only to find out Jesse has arrived to take her "home".

Throughout Jesse's and Susannah's journey, there's heartbreak and insecurity on Susannah's part, but through it all, she discovers that Jesse is her rock.

This story was so sweet. This is a really great novel, and it happens to be the author's first novel published! What a great first novel. :)

Catherine Richmond was focused on her career as an occupational therapist till a special song planted a story idea in her mind. That idea would ultimately become Spring for Susannah, her first novel. She is also a founder and moderator of Nebraska Novelist critique group and lives in Nebraska with her husband.
