Courting Mr. Emerson

Courting Mr. Emerson
Melody Carlson
Willow is a free-spirited, adventurous artist who is raising her grandson. Her husband passed away several years ago and Willow moved back to her hometown to start an art gallery. She meets her grandson's teacher Mr. Emerson when she goes to the school to talk to him. He is the exact opposite of her. He wears the same clothes, follows the same routines, and needs structure to survive. When the two get together they mix like oil and water. Add into the equation a church going Willow and an aloof, perhaps agnostic Mr. Emerson and their future together doesn't look promising. 

I always enjoy a good romance story. This is not really a romance, at least not in the expected way. Sure it has romance between several of the characters. But this book has so much more. The message of salvation is woven between every line. The author does a fantastic job of creating authentic, realistic characters that pull at your heartstrings. There are also elements of humor, family, and drama woven into the plot. I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it for a quick, enjoyable read. But expect to also be pulled out of your comfort zone and be left thinking long after you finish the book. 

I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads. all thoughts expressed are my own.
