Treasuring Emma - Kathleen Fuller

Summary from Good Reads: 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 raising her siblings after their parents' untimely death. She's put their needs above her own and now, with them grown, she can focus on herself and her dream of opening a yarn store in the vacant cider house on her land.

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 others aside and give their love a chance?

Emma has had a rough life.  Her father passed away, then she had to care for her mother who eventually died of cancer, she takes care of her grandmother and has never married.  Emma had her heart broken two years ago when her childhood love, Adam, decided to leave the Amish faith and move to Michigan.  Emma's granmother, Leona, wrote to Adam after Emma's mother passed to have him come back for a visit.  Upon returning, all of Emma feelings returned for Adam at the wrong time in her life.  She had a house and farm to care for while worrying about how to make ends meet.  She did not have time to deal with Adam and his confused emotions.

All things happen for a reason.  If it is God's will, He will take care of it.  God showed Emma and Adam the direction their lives should be going to but does Adam listen.  Emma is afraid to get close to him again because she does not want her heart broken again.  This was a wonderful story by Kathleem Fuller.  I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to reading more about these characters from her in the next book in this series.

A special thanks to Book Sneeze for allowing me to review this book in advance!
