Emma: A Latter-Day Tale
This Christian fiction book was fun, dramatic, and quirky at times. The Mormon based play on Austen’s Emma did not disappoint. I hate to admit this, but I have never read Emma or even seen the movie at that, but I did like this book so I imagine I would love Emma.
This clean romance is filled with religious references and being Southern Baptist, myself, I appreciated this aspect. I also like the eccentric Emma. She is so clueless, nosey, and stuck in her head. I love the fact that the life coach needs coaching.
I also liked Justin who stands by Emma’s side through thick and thin.
Emma is trying top be a life coach and has found her next project in Harri, a new girl in town. Instead of coaching Harri, Emma tells her what to do even giving her a makeover and choosing who she dates. Emma has hang ups of her own including jealously and along the way thinks she is falling in love herself.
I thought that this book was a cute, short read and would recommend this book to girls 15 and over, Mormon or not.
