Emmeline by Sarah Holman (Emma): The talk of stock market crashes and depression isn’t going to keep Emmeline Wellington down. Born to wealth and privilege, Emmeline wants nothing more than to help her new friend, Catarina, find a husband. Emmeline sets her sights on one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, but nothing seems to go right. Even her friend and neighbor Fredrick Knight seems to question her at every turn.

Emmeline is one of the few Vintage Fiction books that I havefollowvnighted; I don’t normally like that time era.
Emmeline is one of my favorite Jane Austen remakes. I have not read Emma through I do have it on my Kindle and will try to read it soon.
My favorite character is Frederick Knight who is a real knight, he is loyal, faithful to God in his actions, and does not follow the majority when they are making fun of others. Showing his true love for Emmeline by both his words and actions just as God commanded love your neighbors as your self. And Frederick forgives Emmeline every time.
My Verse for Frederick is Proverbs 27:6 Faithful are <span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-ESV-17176A" data-link="(A)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-family: “helvetica neue” , “verdana” , “helvetica” , “arial” , sans-serif; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”>the wounds of a friend;profuse are the kisses of an enemy. In the English Standard Version Bible (ESV).
Emmeline is not my favorite character at first but by the end of the book I like her just as much as I like Frederick. She is trying to help her friends but is not trusting God to do His will. And is too worried about what others think when she should only worry about following God and what He thinks. In the end Emmeline sees that she is sinning. And I to me it seems she thinks she know people before she really does.
My Verse for Emmeline is Proverbs 28:26 Whoever <span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-ESV-17223AT" data-link="(AT)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-family: “helvetica neue” , “verdana” , “helvetica” , “arial” , sans-serif; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”>trusts in his own mind is a fool,but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review and the thoughts are my own.
