Product Details
Picture and synopsis from
Emma always put the needs of others ahead of her own. When will it be her turn to be treasured?
Adam was her first love and best friend. But then he went away. Determined to experience the freedom of living in the Englisch world, he left Emma heart-broken. How could he have chosen the world over her?
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?

My Review:

I thought this book was really good.  I like how Kathleen protrayed the characters, showing how they struggle, just like normal people.  You wouldn't think that what happened in this book, could happen in an Amish community, but I'm sure it does.  I'm not going to give any spoilers, you need to read it to find out what happens, but I say good job Kathleen.  This was an excellent book.  Now I'm reading Faithful to Laura.
I got this book from my local Library.
