About Katie Crabapple

I’m a Christian homeschooling mom who loves to write. I believe that love is the center of our walk with God and want to share simple lighthearted stories about finding your soul-mate within God’s family. I believe that God gave us a sense of humor for a reason, so I try to put a little bit of humor in my stories. I can’t imagine a world without laughter.

A short, precise and enjoyable read. I have grown to enjoy Historical Christian romance ever since I read Redeeming Love by Franschine Rivers. This was a good read for me.

This was the first book by Crabapple I have read. It was an short read about a widow with four children who was pushed into placing an ad for a mail order bride.
I typically enjoy reading Mail Order Bride romances and did enjoy this one. Millie being an orphan gave it a unique spin.
That said, I found Crabapple's writing to either be of two things. One, it was targeted for a young teen audience or two, she did not have confidence in her writing or her audience as she repeated or over explained mundane facts. This was especially true of Millie's household duties. It is one thing to give the reader insight to the challenges she met in keeping a home. But to give so many meal plans, chore lists, left me feeling the book had already been digested for me.
While the spiritual focus was a great plus and certainly an encouragement to see in a story, it was a bit preachy. Often the message in life and in a book is best received as we are shown lives impacted by walking with Christ. The unbending nature George displayed our such matters did not reflect well on Christ's love for the church. He treated her more like a child being reprimanded than a soul being loved and encouraged.
I thought Crabapple was excellent in her portrayal.of the children at the ages indicated. Patience stole my heart as soon as she was introduced.

Good Read! Sweet story about an orphan who needs a home and becomes a mail order bride. I really enjoy fiction that gives me a view of what day to day life was like in the past.
