Katie's Redemption is a typical Amish-themed, Christian romance. It is very well-written with no glaring editorial issues. There are, however, a few "Amish" issues. Perhaps it is a difference between the Amish that the author is familiar with and the Amish that I am familiar with.

Despite that issue, I would definitely recommend this book. I really liked the character development of this book. Not only did the author develop the characters well as the story progressed, but she very adequately po...more

I have to say that this book was awesome. I just couldn't put it down. I read it in two sittings. I just kept me interested the whole time.

Katie has had such a hard life and finding where she fit in has been difficult for her, her whole life. She never felt like she truly belonged anywhere and never had the real meaning of a family. I felt so bad for her with everything that she had been through.

This book really brings you in to how Katie is feeling. Elam is such a warm but standoffish type of p...more
Sweet and wholesome. I read in a few hours. I love the different take this book has exploring heartbreaking issues that the Amish face as well as the rest of the world
Gail Mchugh
As sweet as sugar............... Katie had just the right amount of courage and stamina. She was a great character. I loved Elam to bits.
This one caught my attention in the first chapter and was fairly realistic.

"What an excellent read, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for the next book. It shows that the author Patricia Davids did a lot of research. It definitely shows through the Amish information, their language, their traditions, beliefs and clothing plus their very strong belief in following God's wishes."

I read this on the kindle

It was a nice story but you knew what happens just by the title it didn't hold any surprises as such but was a nice story a easy one to read & i read it in a day

I have read other ones from this author & they are all okay but typical of the Mills & Boon books which always is predictable but nice as i said a easy book to read by the fire on a winter's evening
Lynn Spencer
A quick read and a very sweet book. I don't normally read much Amish romance, but this was a nice, feel-good story. The conflict involving the heroine who left behind her Amish upbringing and then returned to her community as a single mother was believable, and this book was better written than the(admittedly few) other Amish books I've tried.
I haven't read the Amish Brides Series in order, but I have enjoyed each and everyone that I have read so far. I love learning about the Amish people and their amazing faith in God. I loved Katie's Redemption because it reminds us all of God's gift go us so that we can be redeemed like Katie.

Can Katie find her way back to God as an Amish woman?
I loved this book! I love the redemption that all the Characters had to go through in order to learn and lesson. Great story and I can't wait until the next one comes out! I've not read any Amish books lately, but this one got me in the mood for more!
Patricia David"s Katie's Redemption was a nice read. Katie comes home to her Amish family only to find them gone. She meets an Amish family much nicer than hers and therein lies the tale.

I'am a sucker for Love Inspired books... This was AWESOME. Had a great story line we all can relate to. Straying away from God and finding our way back. LOVED IT!
This book was cute I guess, I read it because I thought it sounded interesting and different and it was but maybe this kind of story isn't my thing.
Clara Roberts
This was purely escape reading. I enjoyed it but learned nothing but I did not find it particularly entertaining.
Joanne Stein
The Love Inspired books are generally sweet and thoughtful and the Amish focus of this book was very enjoyable.
Peggy McKinstry
Love this Amish story. Heartwarming story about a girl finally finding a place to call home.
