Katherine is a work of fiction in the Christian, historical, and wartime drama sub-genres, and was penned by author T. J. Lampron. A largely clean read accessible to most readers, this powerful drama takes us to New England during the harrowing events of World War 2. We meet the titular character Katherine when her son is fighting in the war, far away in Europe, and her marriage is under strain during a most trying and unusual holiday season. Deep emotions and high family drama are in store as this uplifting and heart-warming tale discusses the themes of faith and love during a seemingly hopeless time in world history.

Author T. J. Lampron has crafted a concise but highly detailed and well thought out drama, one in which readers will find themselves easily immersed. It is always interesting to me to read fiction about the people left behind during war rather than those fighting it, and Lampron utilizes detail, dialogue, and atmosphere to convey the very emotional struggle for mothers trying to hold their families together. Katherine is a deep-feeling heroine who will be relatable to historical fiction and family saga readers alike, and the close narrative work of the author allows us a unique insight into her heart and soul. The nature of faith and hope is discussed in a most inspirational way that gives the novel a strong moral conscience. Overall, I would certainly recommend Katherine as an accomplished and engrossing read for one and all.
