Book Review: Treasuring Emma

Emma has put everyone else first in her life. Now at nearly 25, has she missed her chance at marriage?

Emma was Adam's first love but circumstances made them both choose different paths in life. Emma's heart breaks all over again when Adam returns to the Amish community of Middlefield, Ohio, years later.

For the past ten years, Emma has been a care-giver. First for her mother who unsuccessfully battled breast cancer, and now for her grandmother who gets more frail with each passing year. Emma has always put the needs of others above her own. With more time on her hands, she determines to focus on herself and her dream of opening a rescue shelter for stray animals in the community.

With Adam's return come feelings Emma's long buried. They're older and life hasn't turned out the way they thought it would. Adam's feelings for Emma are stronger than ever, but will he be able to convince her to put the past aside and give their love a chance?

My Opinion
As you may have noticed from my many previous book reviews, I really enjoy reading novels about the Amish lifestyle! Treasuring Emma was another great one I had the privilege to read but a little different than most I read because it was really focused on family dynamics!

This book really showed that although the Amish try to live their life as simply as possible, they still face challenges and health issues the same as mainstream Americans do. They have struggles, they pray and they need God's strength - the same as we all do!

Although it really focused on family, there was some added romance between Emma and Adam - that is always an extra bonus for me! :)

I recommend Treasuring Emma for all Christian fiction book lovers and people interested in the Amish culture! Overall, it was a great storyline and great reminder that we will all face challenges in our life - no matter what culture or lifestyle we live. God will help us get through it all!
