A Great Catch is a Great Read

A Great Catch by Lorna Seilstad

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was hooked in under 50 words. 

Lorna Seilstad had me smiling and turning pages from beginning to end. Little bits of humor are sprinkled throughout the book, making for a very enjoyable and relaxing read.

The main characters, Emily and Carter, are easy to relate to, fun to be with. They made me evaluate the things I believe about myself, my tactics to avoid things I don't want to deal, and how much time I'm spending with God. Very valuable things all dealt with in a gentle, fun-loving way.

The secondary characters are charming and full of their own life and color, without stealing the show. Lake Manawa brings to life a by-gone era, making me wish I could visit and stay awhile. Women's rights and baseball made for a great combination and I loved the details included in A Great Catch.

Over all, I found this to be a truly delightful read that I hated coming to the end of, and I highly recommend.
