Courting Cate


By Leslie Gould

When This Couple Gets to Courting, Sparks Will Fly!

In Paradise, Pennsylvania, 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 most of the bachelors in Lancaster County!

But the sisters’ wealthy father has made one hard-and-fast rule: older Cate must marry first, before younger Betsy can even start courting. Unfortunately, untamable Cate has driven away every suitor–until Pete Treger comes to town, that is.

Prodded by the men of the area, Pete turns his attention to winning Cate’s hand. But is his interest true or is there a scheme at play?


The two sisters are being tortured by their own father. Betsy wants to ge married and have a family. Cate just wants to read. She’s already made her peace with remaining single.

It now appears that neither are going to be happy until Cate gets married. Their father has decreed that Cate has to marry before Betsy is allowed to do so.

When Cate finally finds a man she thinks she could love, it appears that he is only courting her, because her father is wealthy.

Now Cate has to decide if she’ll go ahead and marry him anyway so Betsy can get married. Is she really willing to endure the pain that such a marriage would bring?
