When Emma’s interference in her friends’ lives backfires, will the consequences be more than she bargained for?
Emma Weaver is twenty-one years old and has found a passion for playing matchmaker with her friends. Her neighbor, Gideon King, warns her about interfering in people’s lives, but she disregards his advice and plans to set up Paul, the son of the bishop, with her friend Hannah.
But when Paul misinterprets Emma’s attention, believing she has feelings for him, he begins asking her to ride in his buggy after Sunday singings and shows up at her house for Friday evening visits. As she tries to repair the damage that’s been done and mend the hearts that have been broken, she finds herself in trouble with the community.
Will she learn her lesson and stop meddling in the affairs of others? Will she find a love of her own?
I’ll be the first to admit that I have never really read any of Jane Austen’s books. Yes — I know — I am way behind ( I plan on reading some this year). However, when I heard about these Amish fiction stories by Sarah Price that were based upon Austen’s novels, I knew I wanted to read them.
In The Matchmaker, we meet Emma. Emma is determined to never marry but she knows who is the perfect match for her new friend Hannah. At least she thinks she does. Emma means well but her plans aren’t what God has planned and hearts are broken! Can they be healed and lives lived as only God planned?
If you want to know, you will just have to read the book for yourself. If you love Amish fiction like I do, you will LOVE The Matchmaker!
