Book Review - "Treasuring Emma"

Kathleen Fuller's latest Amish series begins with "Treasuring Emma." Emma has dealt with and is dealing with a lot of loss in her life. Both of Emma's parents have passed away and her heart has been broken when Adam left years earlier to live as an Englisher. When Adam receives word that his mother is not doing well he moves back to the family farm next to Emma. However, there is a cousin of Emma's brother-in-law who is in the area and Emma's sister is pushing the two of them together. Emma must follow her heart and conscience and put God first; however this is easier said than done.

Although the Amish live different lives than the English they are still human and deal with some of the same issues and struggles in their lives. Emma does not feel that good about her physical appearance, Emma's sister and brother-in-law have a struggling marriage and some people are not who they first appear to be. This book is well-written and a quick read. The characters are well-developed and seem real making this a great start to the series and I am looking forward to the next book!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. *
