Book Review: Treasuring Emma
“Treasuring Emma” by Kathleen Fuller is a heartwarming Amish romance about a young girl who thought she lost it all when she is suddenly thrust into more turmoil. Only weeks after the funeral of Emma’s mother, her first love comes back from his “Yankee” lifestyle and her sister comes up with a plan to demolish her memories of her beloved grandfather. Emma is confused and unsure of what to do.
“Treasuring Emma” is a great read. If you love Amish romances, this one is a good one! The only thing I did not like about the book was that there were a few loose ends that were left at the end of the story. An epilogue could have possibly cured the problem. The characters were very dimensional and remind the reader of real people. The plot was interesting and only a little predictable. I love that Emma is a robust woman who finds true love in someone who appreciates her for the person she is. The “Pennsylvania Dutch” dialogue is easy to understand and adds to the “Amish” feel of the book. I think that any Amish book enthusiast would greatly enjoy reading this story of a girl who must believe that, in the end, God will provide!
Thanks for stopping by!
