Now Adam is back in Middlefield and Emma can't seem to keep him away from her family's farm. But this time she's determiend to guard her heart. It might be love that keeps him there . . . or perhaps just guilt.
When a newcomer arrives in town and shows an interest in Emma, she dismisses Adam's insistence that she be cautious. All this attention is new to her and she doesn't know quite how to accept it. Emma knows her Heavenly Father treasures her. But will her new beau?
Emma has lost her mother to cancer after having been her caregiver for the last year. She needs peace and relaxation due to the strain of the past year.
Because of financial struggles Emma decides to help her sister in the family fabric store even though she was against the idea at first and she is also caring for her ailing grandmother not to mention the family farm.
Emma always puts the needs of others first
The characters are all dealing with trials, they are interesting and enjoyable folks. The story involves a lot of conniving and secrecy involving a newcomer.
If you like Amish fiction you will like Treasuring Emma. I give it 4 stars.
I received a ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an hhonest review.
