Publishers Description

Emma Stutzman's Amish life was abruptly altered when she learned about her husband's sudden and tragic death. Now a single parent, Emma must figure out how to respond to the pressures of modernization and the pull of mainstream culture. Will she regain her strength as a woman after so much stress and tragedy in her married life? How will she lead her children to faith in the Amish Mennonite church without their father?

Journey into the world of "Emma: A Widow among the Amish" and follow this true-life story of a woman left to raise six young children on her own after her world collapsed. Ervin R. Stutzman, the youngest son of Emma, paints a fictionalized but ultimately true story of his mother's daily struggle to provide for her children and be faithful to God. This intimate portrait is a sequel to "Tobias of the Amish," the true-to-life story of the author's late Amish father.

A MOTHER'S LOVE   Mar 17, 2008
I just completed the book,"EMMA" which I finished reading in no time at all. I literally could not put the book down. I did read, "TOBIAS of the AMISH" first, which was another incredible book by the same author, who wrote about the life of his father first. I'd give each book a (5) Star rating. I have numerous books on the Amish/Mennonite people. Some are fiction, some are true life stories. "EMMA" fascinated me from beginning to end. Emma was a woman of amazing strength. She lost her husband Tobe, who died from a terrible accident at a young age & left Emma with 6 young children to raise on her own. All through her years, she carried her husband's love in her heart & that love transcended right to her children. If at any time the children needed discipline, Emma could do it with both love & respect, and in return, she got that same love & respect back from her children. Emma's faith & belief in God was rock solid & I believe it was her faith & love for her children, that got her through all the rough years she faced ahead of her on her own. She always felt God's presence in her life. I thought "EMMA" is a beautiful & poignant love story about a woman who loved her husband, both in life & in death as well. I also feel the book depicts a love story about a son who realizes what an incredible mother he had, to write this beautiful story on her life. I feel truly blessed to have read both these books & would recommend them to anyone to read & enjoy. It will captivate your heart as much as it did mine. Arlene Greve
Could not stay awake to read this one.   Mar 8, 2008
I felt like I was reading a history book. It did not hold my attention. This was one book that I did not feel obligated to finish. This coming from a person who cannot get enough of reading Amish and Mennonite fiction. This book could have been just as spell-binding as any of the fiction books if written in a better narrative style.
Emma  Feb 22, 2008
The story jumps around and doesn't complete subjects leaves you hanging as to what happened here.
Amish reading  Feb 8, 2008
Parts of this Amish novel were interesting but unless you're very much into the differences between all of the subsets of Amish churches and how they're formed you will get bored very quickly and I did.
Amazing Grace  Dec 31, 2007
Emma is an amazing book. The author has written an incredible book about his mother, of her strength and tragedy that occured when her husband Tobias died. I sincerely recommend this book and hope anyone who reads it will be blessed as I was.
