From the back cover: Emily Sundberg has her life all laid out. She has a respectable job as a teacher and an idea of whom she should marry. But does God have a better plan?
Emily Sundberg considers herself a proper young lady of the twentieth century. But a decade ago she behaved more like a tomboy. So when the neighbor’s grandson came to visit one summer when she was thirteen, they became fast friends. Emily even got her first kiss—quite by accident.
Unfortunately Jake Edgerton told all the boys something else. Rumors circulated, and Emily caved from embarrassment and guilt. Meanwhile Jake returned home to Fallon, Montana and she never saw or heard from him again.
Over the years Emily has worked hard to prove to her peers and the people of Manitowoc, Wisconsin that, despite past mistakes, she is an upstanding young woman, one worthy of being a schoolteacher—and possibly Andy Anderson’s wife. But even with the passing of time, Emily has never forgotten Jake and how he nearly ruined her life…
And now he’s a US deputy marshal and he’s back in town!
The three books in this wonderful series have been set between 1848 and 1900 and have showed us the lives of three generations of the Sundberg family who have settled in Wisconsin from Norway. I have enjoyed each of these books and am sorry to see this series come to an end. This time up the focus is on Emily Sundberg. Emily has a plan for her life. God also has a plan for her life. It is just the details of each plan do not align. She thinks Jake ruined her reputation by his big talking and then he left town. Now she has spent the years trying to build back her reputation, be a school teacher and get married. The only problem is Jake has returned. “Threads of Love” is a story of love, forgiveness and restoration. I like the way Ms. Boeshaar writes. She is an accomplished author who knows how to deliver true to life dialog and create characters that you fall in love with. The love story between Emily and Jake is a lot of fun and this book is filled with plenty of action to keep you turning the pages. This is an excellent read! I recommend it.
