Book Review: Spring for Susannah by Catherine Richmond

I recently read the e-book version of Spring for Susannah by Catherine Richmond. It's a fictional novel that automatically swept me into the story. Susannah Underhill is a girl who finds herself out West knowing no one except her minister's brother, Jesse Mason. Her parents died, so she had no one to turn to. She's supposed to marry Jesse, but she doesn't even love herself. With each passing day, she breaks through those walls that have kept her isolated from the world for so long. She even surprises herself at how wonderful things can be when you let love heal your heart.

I had never read any of Catherine Richardson's books, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When I started reading, I couldn't put the book down because I wanted to know what happened next. I loved how Richardson painted a picture of Susannah. Her words made the character leap off the page and allowed me to experience her hurts, frustrations, and even joys. This would be a great book to take to the beach. It's a love story in more ways than one with some unexpected twists and unique characters along the way. I would definitely recommend this book if you're looking for a new one to read!
