Katelyn’s mother has recently died, and she is left living on the farm with her father and brothers who are not very nice people; her mother told her to escape the farm and go and see the “enchanted Thousand Islands." Katelyn is lucky enough to be offered a summer job on the island as a servant to the very famous and rich Pullman family. Katelyn works hard as part of the kitchen staff, gets promoted to the serving staff, and is sometimes nanny to the two little Pullman girls. Thomas is also working there, along with his sister, Katelyn’s best friend. It does not take long for sparks to fly between Katelyn and Thomas in both good and bad ways. There is much work to be done as President Ulysses S. Grant is coming for a visit and this requires much preparation and excitement. Katelyn finds herself in several awkward situations but always manages to pull herself out successfully.

Katelyn’s Choice by Susan G. Mathis is a wonderfully written book. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and so want to know more about Katelyn’s future. If you enjoy romance, history, God’s scripture and characters that will win you over, then you must read Katelyn’s Choice. Author Susan G. Mathis has given us readers the gift of a great book and I can hardly wait for the next installment featuring the Gilded Age in the Thousand Islands series. The late 1800s came alive and made me both long for those past days of glory and start to plan a vacation to the Thousand Islands so I could see for myself the magnificence of the area. Please, please do not pass up reading Katelyn’s Choice; it is a winner for young adults and older readers alike.
