Leslie Gould: Amish Shakespeare?

(December 6, 2012)
Christa A. Banister
With the novel Courting Cate (Bethany House), Leslie Gould launches her series The Courtships of Lancaster County. Offering a fresh take on Amish romance, each book in the series will be loosely modeled on one of Shakespeare’s timeless plays. Courting Cate is a variation on The Taming of the Shrew set amid the beloved barns and buggies of Lancaster County.

In Paradise, PA, Cate Miller is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Her sweet and flirty sister, Betsy, on the other hand, seems to have attracted almost every bachelor in Lancaster County!

But the sisters’ wealthy father has set a hard-and-fast rule: Cate, as the oldest, must get married before Betsy can do so. Unfortunately, untamable Cate has driven away every suitor—until Pete Treger comes to town, that is.

Encouraged by the men of the area, Pete seems determined to win Cate’s hand, but is her heart really what he’s after?
