Today we are going to meet Mr. George Emerson in Courting Mr. Emerson by Melody Carson.
George Emerson is just starting retirement. He’s been living the same life for the past 30 years and the school he’s been with has changed so much, George has decided that its time to retire. But before he can even get out of the school Wild Willow West breezes into his life. Well… Wild Willow West is more like a wind storm to George.
Willow West is wanting someone to help write a letter of recommendation for her grandson Colin. Colin has mentioned the Mr. Emerson is one of his favorite teachers. When Willow West meets George Emerson she finds that he is a very peculiar and quirky individual and is in need of a emotional and mental ‘face lift.’
As Willow pushes her way into George’s life, although not intentional, George finds himself and notices he is a creature of habit and feels he does need to try new things. George soon becomes a mentor to Colin and helps him with his college options. However when Colin’s estranged mother shows back up after 18 years, after a hard break up, will it become too overwhelming for George to keep up the friendship with Willow and her ‘wild’ family?

This book was a great read. It was funny and makes the reader laugh out loud. Although it was a Christian novel, it did not push the envelope too hard, so I recommend this as a clean novel and a good heart felt adult read. I want to also mention that I received the book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review that was in favor or not in favor of the book. I just read them for fun so you guys can get a chance to hear about great books.
I look forward to sharing my next read Almost Home next time.
Have a great spring evening!
