Customer Reviews For "Courting Miss Amsel"Write Your Own Review
A teacher by trade, I enjoyed the ups and downs Miss Edythe Amsel as she struggled to maintain discipline and provide sound educational outcomes for her students in a remote one teacher school. Even without a teaching background I am sure that all readers will be able to relate to either mischievous classmates, lunch time bullying, adoration of favourite teacher or pleasure in participating in school musicals, Christmas pageants or awards night. However Courting Miss Amsel is much more than a recount of school adventures. It is a story of heartache, responsibility and a journey towards love. A small ember of faith in God is found and nurtured resulting in a life given over to the joy of being loved and carried by a heavenly father. Another faith filled story by Kim Vogel Sawyer.
I always enjoy Kim Vogel Sawyer's writing - such excellent character development, such lovable characters, such spiritual insight. Things I especially enjoyed about Courting Miss Amsel were that despite attraction, Joel would not consider a relationship with anyone who did not share his faith. Edythe's journey to faith was beautifully told. Wise, old Mrs. Kinsley, the landlady, gave good advice, lots of love and threw in just enough matchmaking to make it interesting. there was also an interesting look at how small town communities cope with change (in this case in education styles and agricultural techniques), bullies (in both the school and the adult community), and the rise of women's suffrage. So we learn, we love, we are entertained, challenged and inspired - what more can we ask of a book?
