I'm a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.
I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I've retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I'm from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been married for over twenty years and have a son-a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!
I love homemade tacos, shoes, and romance novels-not necessarily in that order. I'm a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I'm shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.
I believe that God is love. I guess that's why I adore romances.
I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop.
I dislike people trying to convince me to read the Twlight series (I'll get to it or I won't, either way I'm good with it), gratuitous violence, and strawberry ice cream. (I know I'm alone on this last one, and again, I'm good with it.)
Favorite movies-(besides HP) French Kiss, Maid of Honor, A Lot Like Love, Just Married, and Sweet Home Alabama. Oh, and Miss Congeniality, Sabrina (both versions) and a 1940′s movie called Dear Ruth. If you haven't seen it, you should! A-dorable. Anything with Doris Day and most all of Marilyn's and Audrey's.
I just fell in love with this book. Visiting Wells Landing is like a world that has peace and warmth in it, like no other. True the Amish have some of the same problems that the regular Englisch have but the Amish have differences that make you wonder if you wouldn't want to sit on their front porch drinking lemonade. The basis of the story could be any where. It's where two young ones are in love and one, Luke Lambright decides to leave and go live with the Englisch. Emily is heart broken. She then meets an Amish man who is a little older than her. Elam has been in love with Emily for years. The bishop is Emily's father and likes Elam but not Luke. One thing I really loved was how everyone worked and played with Elam's father who had been in a bad accident. He slowly came out into the world and one of the first things he liked was the color purple.Emily has a huge decision to make. Luke has come back to get Emily but will she leave her Amish life and the man she is beginning to love? If you read this book, you won't be disappointed. There is a love brewing that won't cool down. But is it between Emily and Elam or Emily and Luke?
I was given a complimentary copy of COURTING EMILY from the author, Amy Lillard and Night Owl Reviews for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
