Leslie Gould's Courting Cate (Bethany House Publishers, 2012) is the first in a new series centering around courtships among the Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Gould really takes the reader into "modern" Amish life, as well giving the reader a glimpse of a more traditional Amish lifestyle. I particularly enjoyed learning about the customs surrounding an Amish wedding.
I related to Cate in many ways. As a girl, Cate was teased and bullied. As a young woman, she has become defensive and churlish. Before she can love and be loved, Cate has to overcome her distrust and her deeply held notion that she is unlovable. I think that that is a task that many of us can relate to.
If you're interested in Amish life or just enjoy a sweet romance, Courting Cate is a very entertaining read.
