Its a book that will pull you in from page one.

It makes her a true heroine of the story, albeit a bit unrealistic.

Format: Hardcover
"Come Spring" was written by Ben Ames Williams in 1940. It has been published several times since because it is an enduring classic. Mima is the main character of the book, a young woman with a deep inner strength. We meet her at the very beginning of the book, as she and her family are on a boat taking them to the Maine wilderness at the start of the American Revolution. The story shows the hardships and heartbreak of taming the New World and the deep, abiding love that keeps the families going. Ben Ames Williams is famous for his contemporary writings, such as "Leave Her to Heaven" (which was made into a movie), but I feel that his historical fiction is where he excells. The families featured in "Come Spring" truly did exist, forming the history of Union, Maine. This is an outstanding book and I recommend it for anyone who loves romance, history and excitement

Come Spring is one of my all time favorite books. When I read this book (about every other year) it's as engrossing as the first time I read it. I can close my eyes and picture the wildllfe Williams decribes, I find myself trying to copy the accents of the characters and never fail, I end up reading late into the night "just one more chapter". For more information on this wonderful book, contact the Union Historical Society at 207-785-5444.

This is a wonderful historical novel, well worth reading and re-reading. It's full of romance and adventure, and readers will enjoy knowing that many descendants of the characters still live in the lovely town of Union. In fact, they can visit the Union Historical Society's website for more information about the town....

Format: Paperback
Come Spring by Ben Ames Williams is one of the best books I have ever read and I've been reading for over 70 years. A period piece, non-stop reading on a par with Cold Mountain, GWTW or John Grisham's Pelican Brief.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully written book following a family's struggle to start a new life on a lake in the Maine woods during the Revolutionary War period. It is a wonderful tale, which fictionalizes the lives of some very real people, who truely did exist in what is now Union, Maine. I would give this book my highest recommendation!

I borrowed this book from a friend. She was very much into history and I din't think I would like it. It is a good sized book and I happened to be looking for something to keep me busy at this time in my life.From the first page on, I couldn't put it down. Its a book that will pull you in from page one.I wish now I could own this book and also visit Union Maine. If you read it, it will stay with you for a very long time.

Format: Paperback
This is a good read, and significant as it documents an early settlement in Maine, and typifies life in the those early times, and what our Maine ancesters went through to settle those remote regions, of which Maine has many. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
Just finished reading a borrowed copy of 'Come Spring'. Ordered a copy for myself (something I've never done before). When it arrives, will read it again (again, something I have never done before). Full of good story, history, and earthy philosophies. Ben Ames Williams has a way of putting it all together. It takes a few chapters to get into the mood of the book, but once there, watch out!
