A Great Fun Read with touching emotion  Jul 5, 2007
I read Front Porch Princess on a trip. Each evening in the hotel while my husband played laptop solitaire, I read. I loved the heroine and her best friend the beautician. And I loved each of the small town characters that added so much to the story. I usually don't enjoy chick or momlit because I hate whiney heroines. But Elise was no whiner and a fresh new heroine for me to love!
Absolutely Wonderful!  Feb 7, 2007
A small town where everyone knows everything about everyone, and one woman has dreamed her entire life about escaping Pritchett. Having won a beauty title in her teens, Elise dreamed of becoming a model or an actress. Life had different plans in the form of a handsome farmer. Elise settles reluctantly into small-town life, wanting more for her daughter. When her daughter enters Elise into a Mrs. Proverbs 31 pageant, Pritchett, Wisconsin pulls out the red carpet, complete with a parade and an ice cream social.

As Elise prepares for the pageant, she discovers much more about love, beauty, friendship, and God, learning to be content in her circumstances.

Front Porch Princess is a delightful read. Kathryn Springer has the reader running a gauntlet of emotions. Don't read this book unless you're prepared to not be able to put it down! Absolutely wonderful. - Cynthia Hickey, author
Touched my heart  Dec 16, 2006
This was the story of a 40 year old wife and mom who's let bitterness take root in her life. Kathryn Springer does an excellent job of making a woman who could be very unsympathetic a very likable and human character. I was quickly drawn into Elise's life and mind. Generally not a fan of fiction written in 1st person I was surprised at how well it was done and how well it worked.

To say that I empathized with Elise would be an understatement, many of the issues she faces in the book (like looking forward and not back, having a real, dynamic relationship with God vs. a surface relationship) are issues I am currently facing myself. And reading a fiction book that touches on my current life issues is something I always enjoy. Reading about how Elise dealt with what was going on in her heart, life and mind really helped me to make forward progress on my own things. As an aspiring writer I think that's some of the highest praise you can give a writer.

I was so touched that the book really made a difference in my life. And I pulled out my bible to read more about the Proverbs 31 woman!

Also a huge plus for me was the fact that Christianity was not overplayed. It was simply another layer of several of the characters in the book, seamlessly woven into their making and very believable. Not once did I feel preached at and not once did I feel like I was reading someone else's opinion of what faith should be like and how it should be loved.

This book is an excellent read and I'd highly suggest it for any woman looking for a down to earth, honest look at marriage, parenthood and faith. Enjoy!
Can't Wait for the Next Book in this Series!!!  Sep 12, 2006
"Front Porch Princess" is one of THE BEST books that I have read in a long while--the only sad thing about it is that it went by way too fast--I started it on a Saturday and finished it the very next night! It is such a wonderful story, and the seamless way the story and the characters are woven together is just incredibly beautiful! This story made me laugh; it made me think; and it brought tears to my eyes more than once! Elise, Bernice, and Annie and their families quickly became friends of the heart, and I simply can't wait to see what happens next in the town of Pritchett! It is refreshing to read such a rich and powerful story with characters who are REAL and are learning what it means to live in the fullness of God's grace and love throughout their everyday lives. This inspirational book is sure to be a blessing and an encouragement to Christian women in every season and walk of life!

Loved it!!!  Jul 25, 2006
Well written, moving story of God's presence and love and plans for his children including a 40 year old woman who appears to outsiders to "have it all" but who isn't really convinced of that herself. Elise moves from a "see you on Sunday" relationship with the Lord to a relationship with God as a real presence in her daily life. The story isn't remotely preachy. The characters talk about God the way my friends and I talk about God. He's with us and he cares about everything that concerns us at all times. Every single character is lovable; you'll wish they were your flesh and blood friends so you could call them up and see what's going on with them today. I look forward to reading more about these characters in future books.
