A Great Catch

Hello Readers, Now usually it takes me at least two nap times to finish a book, but sorry to say, this one did not hold my interest and I skipped to the end to see what happened. A Great Catch is the second book written by Lorna Seilstad. Her first book was ok, but since she's a fairly new author I wanted to give her a chance. This book was better then the first, but it seemed to tary on things that didn't interest me that much. Thus why I skipped to the end.

A Great Catch is set in the early 1900's, when women's rights were restricted and the cry for more choices such as the right to vote was beginning to stir in the women. This book had a great plot, but it seemed to have too many eggs in the basket (if you know what I mean). Emily Graham is a forward thinking woman of twenty-two. Who wants to see the right for women to vote and is willing to sacrifice anything. With a couple of aunts who want to see her married and a brother who seems to pester her it would seem to be the ingredients for a fun lighthearted book. Unfortunately, there was just too much going on and I would have liked the author to stick to one or two things. But as Lavar says in Reading Rainbow "Don't take my word on it". Have fun reading!

  1. Do you really only skip to the end when it is a book you do not like ;)
