ABOUT THE BOOK
Joel Townsend is thrilled to learn the town council hired a female teacher to replace the ruthless man who terrorized his nephews for the past two years. Having raised the boys on his own since their parents' untimely deaths, Joel believes they will benefit from a woman's influence. But he sure didn't bargain on a woman like Miss Amsel.
Within the first week, she has the entire town up in arms over her outlandish teaching methods, which include collecting leaves, catching bugs, making snow angels, and stringing ropes in strange patterns all over the schoolyard. Joel can't help but notice that she's also mighty pretty with her rosy lips, fashionable clothes, and fancy way of speaking.
When Edythe decides to take her pupils to hear Miss Susan Anthony speak on the women's suffrage amendment, the town's outcry reaches new heights. Even Joel isn't sure he can support her newfangled ideas any longer. And if he can't trust her to know how to teach the boys, how can he trust her with his heart?
If you would like to read the first chapter of Courting Miss Amsel, go HERE.
Can a broken heart heal? Edythe fills your heart with joy when you read how happy she is with her teaching position, as a bonus the children love her. The parents don't.
As you read this book you want to reach into the story and tell Edythe that everything will be o.k., that her heart will mend, her sister will be o.k. and everything will work out. Of course, you cannot do that, but as Edythe goes through her year she begins to soften with the help of her friend, Luthenia who helps her find God.
This book will leave you smiling, laughing and crying along with Edythe and some of her antics! This is a book I would enjoy reading again, it is suitable for all ages and just a sincerely sweet book, Kim Vogel Sawyer does it again!
