Spring for Sasannah by Catherine Richmond

Spring for Susannah by Catherine Richmond


After the death of her parents Susannah travels out of the states and into the territories to Fourth Siding, Dakota to marry a man she’s only exchanged a few letters with.  Jesse is a homesteader with big dreams of building a farm that will feed many and a family that will fill his life and he doesn’t want to face another winter alone.  When Susannah arrives she isn’t what Jesse expected and he despairs that she won’t survive her first winter in Dakota but chooses to trust that God knows His plans for Jesse and Susannah.  He just wishes that Susannah could do the same.  Will the winter ever end and bring the thaw of Spring to Susannah?

This book wasn’t what I expected.  I enjoyed the budding relationship between Jesse and Susannah and their growing trust in God in their lives.  However the story feels like it spins out of control.  There is just so much packed in that I sometimes felt a bit overwhelmed.  That said it was a wonderful story.  I enjoyed the historical references and the friendships that the characters manage to forge in the harsh country they live in.  It brings a great admiration for those that came before us.  Overall I would recommend this book.

  1. Amy, I hesitate to recommend it to you.  It was a decent story and for the most part entertaining however I just found it very hodge podge if that makes sense.  Booksneeze releases new books every Wed at midnight and you’ll get an email at the beginning of the month with a list of what’s coming out.  I would say that if you read quickly you could snatch this up and just be ready on Tuesday night!  Keep in mind that you need to submit your review to an outside source as well and it usually takes a few hours for it to go through so that you can submit it to book sneeze.  I would say it’s worth the read if you read quickly… if not hold out.
