Publisher's Description

Twenty-eight-year-old Emma Browning has experienced a good deal of life in her young age. Proprietor of Emma?s Boardinghouse, she is ?mother? to an array of beefy, unkempt, often rowdy characters. Though many men would like to get to know the steely, hard-edged, yet surprisingly lovely proprietor, none has truly succeeded. That is, not until the town?s new pastor, Jonathan Atkins, takes up residence in the boardinghouse, affecting not only her with his devout faith and strong convictions, but her clientele as well. Emma clings desperately to her stubborn ways, refusing to acknowledge God?s love until all of Little Hickman witnesses a miracle?the conversion of her abusive and alcoholic father, Ezra! Only then will Emma begin to experience God?s transforming power at work.

    This review was written for Courting Emma - eBook.
    Emma Browning is the owner of the only boardinghouse in Little Hickman Creek, Kentucky, and has been the proprietor for ten years. She plays housekeeper to several rowdy, uncouth characters, but lets no one past the tough exterior of a hardened facade. After enduring years of endless abuse from her father, Ezra she has been careful to ward off anyone and anything that tries to get past the impenetrable armor that stands guard of her heart. Will she ever let anyone in?

    A new boarder shows up at her door in the form of the preacher, Jonathan Atkins. Will she be able to see past what she believes is his ministerial obligations and believe someone can love her? Or will Ezra's abuse forever scar her from being able to love?

    This story was a first for me on the subject matter of child abuse. The setting in a prairie town in Kentucky just made me more willing to crack this book open and give it a go. One thing I'd like to note about this last book in the Little Hickman Creek Trilogy is that the characters are breathed life and seeped in realism because of their pasts. Reality dictates that everyone has a past - and more often than not, it is not a bed of roses. MacLaren brings this truth to fruition in this novel, and it is masterfully done. I even learned a thing or two....but then you'll just have to read the book.

    Book 3 of "Little Hickman Creek Series" was very heart warming to read how through the goodness and compassion of the Pastor, God transformed two lives. This was another heart warming page turner.

    This was a very heart felt story of how forgiving and forgiveness can set you free, and that love is there for yourself and others.

    am now reading Courting Emma after finishing Loving Liza Jane and Sara My Beloved. I could not put these books down and would suggest that they sould all three be bought at the same time as when you read one you will want to start the next one.
