Great beginning, so-so ending 9 février 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Courting Cate by Leslie Gould is the story of Cate Miller, an Amish girl, who has a no-nonsense personality, interested in books, writing and wants nothing to do with marriage. She raised her younger sister, Betsy who longs to get married to Levi. Their father has put the law down: Betsy may not get married until Cate does. This presents a problem until Pete Treger breezes into town and starts working for Cate's father. He and Cate have a combative friendship, but eventually seem to enjoy each other's company until Cate finds out it was all an act. Or was it? Then her sister tells her news that causes Cate to seal a quick marriage to Pete which she immediately regrets and is stuck in a loveless marriage living with her workaholic in-laws. Cate comes to realize that she has fallen in love with Pete, but she is not sure if he feels the same. Will Cate and Pete have the marriage that they both long for?

I truly loved the beginning of the story when sparks flew between Cate and Pete. I identified with Cate in so many ways except that I did want to get married. However, Cate was very strong and opinionated and I thought she was a great match for Pete. This story has been retold in many ways namely the play, Kiss Me, Kate and the newer contemporary version in a movie, 10 Things I Hate About You. I knew the general plot, but I after Cate got married, it seemed that Pete immediately turned off his charm to her and she was manipulated to work like a maid for his parents. The last half of the story wasn't very appealing to me, but I understood the concept of the plot. But overall, it was a good read and not a typical Amish novel.

Totally Unrealistic Portrayal of Amish Life 18 mars 2013
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If I could have given this book "0" stars, I would have.

There are so many different authors you can read if you enjoy Amish Fiction. Many of them, because they have done the necessary research, provide a very true-to-life portrayal of Amish life. This isn't one of them.

I like to think of this book as a type of "Jerry Springer meets The Beverly Hillbillies meet Amish Mafia meet an off-off-off Broadway production of The Taming of the Shrew." William must be turning in his grave.

I'd really like to know which Amish community this author choose to do her research on, because it is not like any Amish community I've ever come in contact with, and I've lived near the Amish, gone to school with them, shared meals with them, for almost 40 years now.

It is totally unbelievable that:

A 17, almost 18-year-old Amish girl would have no idea how children are conceived. They have farm animals, for goodness sakes!

An Amish father widowed with two young girls would have absolutely no help in caring for them, thereby leaving a 7 year old child to totally care for a newborn (Cate and her sister)

A 27-year-old Amish woman (married or not) would not be able to cook, clean or weed a garden. It just wouldn't happen. The community would not LET it happen, they would step in to help teach her.

An Amish furniture maker would begin an "international" business. They're not that money hungry.

An Amish family with over 10 children would live in a 3 bedroom house, and two of those bedrooms would be for the parents. Again, it just wouldn't happen. The community would not LET it happen.

That grown Amish children would NOT step in to help their aging parents. Again, it wouldn't happen. They have been raised to respect their parents and take care of them in their golden years.

....oh, I could go on and on, but I've got better things to do with my time.

I kept waiting for Uncle Wes to come out of the closet and declare he was gay and having an affair with his New York friend, the way he was portrayed in the book.

Please, don't waste either your time or money on this book. It's not worth it.

ETA: Yes, I have tried to fix the typo in the title of this review (Portrayal, not Portray!), but for whatever reason, it won't take.

Taming of the Shrew: The Amish Version 12 novembre 2012
Par Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In this Amish version of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, Cate Miller is not your typical Amish woman as she would rather spend her time working side by side with her father or reading a good book than spend her time inside a house cleaning and cooking. She has scared away all of the single men in Paradise, Pennsylvania with her sharp tongue and stubborn attitude.

Her younger sister, Betsy, is ready to start courting, but their father will not allow it. He makes a rule that Cate must begin courting first since she is the eldest daughter. This causes a big problem because Cate has no intention of ever marring. Despite the girls' objections, their father has made his decision final.

Cate has no other choice, but to find a respectable husband, which is a little hard considering she has told off every bachelor in the county. Luckily, Pete Treger arrives in town, but just like all other bachelors, he only has eyes for the stunning Betsy. When he realizes that the other men are after Betsy too, he tries his luck with Cate.

Honestly, I have never read Taming of Shrew, but I do recall watching an episode of Moonlighting that was a retelling of it. Here we get another reworking of the classic tale, but this time it is set in the Amish world by author Leslie Gould. I'm an Amish fiction fan, so I was more than eager to review Courting Cate courtesy of Litfuse Publicity Group and Bethany House Publishing. This is not your typical Amish book as you a get a look at the different classes, the rich and the poor, of the Amish life. The main character is not your typical Amish girl looking for true love as she would rather stay single than become a housewife. Considering I have read dozens of Amish books, one would think that Courting Cate would be stale, but I actually found it to be a breath of fresh fair. The author did a remarkable job creating likeable characters with witty dialogue. Overall, I loved reading Courting Cate and I'm looking forward to reading book two in the series.

Wanting more...... 1 novembre 2012
Par LynnB - Publié sur Amazon.com

I absolutely loved this book! Cate is a smart, caring woman, almost to extremes. As I read this, I identified with her in many ways, and became frustrated with some of the people surrounding her. I was humbled by her willingness to change for those she loved,and by her extreme patience with her situation. The reference to Shakespeare was so subtle, and yet funny. This is not a girl meets boy, lives happily ever after book....the twists and turns make for excellent, interesting reading. By the end of the book, I wanted more. Highly reccommended!!

agree with other reviewers 8 avril 2014

I agree with at least 1 other 1 star reviewer who stated Cate was treated horribly and "tamed". Yes, I know that was the premise, try to retell a Shakespeare tale, "The Taming of the Shrew" with an Amish tone to it. Not well done. I rarely review view books with this much criticism in my review but this one was neither conceived nor written well. There are cute scenes and I will give the author one thing, she improved in the middle. The relative hardships faced by both Pete and Cate toward the end showed some small measure of character development. I'll give that section 2 or even 3 stars but not the rest.
