Item description for Emma's Secret: The Cincinnati Epidemic (Sisters in Time) by Veda Boyd Jones...

Overview
Emma Farley has dreams for the future. But her secret hopes are threatened by society's attitude toward "women's work." Of more immediate concern, a massive flood of the Ohio River and a resulting cholera epidemic jeopardize Emma's dreams.
Will Emma and her family even survive the dreaded disease that terrorizes the frontier town of Cincinnati? Will she ever enjoy the future she's laid out in her mind? Through much trial and hardship, Emma learns that God-given dreams are meant to be followed.

Let the Sister's In Time series take you back to 1832--where you may find that Emma Farley isn't that much different than you! Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

This story is based on (and very similar to) Cincinnati Epidemic from the American Adventure Series.

Publishers Description
Time Period:  1832  Twelve-year-old Emma Farley has a secret hope-but in 1832, in the rough frontier city of Cincinnati, will she ever be able to live her dream? The odds are against her, considering society's views of "women's work," as well as the more immediate and frightening problems she face-a massive flood of the Ohio River and an epidemic of cholera. Using actual historical events to tell a compelling coming-of-age story, Emma's Secret shows young readers that God-given dreams are meant to be followed. Combining fiction with real events is an ideal way to teach history and faith-especially at this price!

Reviews - What do customers think about Emma's Secret: The Cincinnati Epidemic (Sisters in Time)?

Boring...  Apr 24, 2008
I wanted to like this book, because I've been looking for books for girls my age that have a good, Christian message... but this book was excruciatingly boring.

It was very slow up until a certain part, but by the time you get to the exciting stuff, you're attention is completely lost. It seems to drag on a little bit... because the writer keeps mentioning the vague "secret" until it is revealed at the end of the book. You're expecting the secret to be very exciting because of all the little mentionings of the "secret", but it just doesn't add up.

Another thing that I've noticed about these books is that in every book, SOMEONE has to die! I understand that they are trying to make the books realistic because back in those times many people died of hardship and disease, but they play it up so much that it's kind of depressing.

If you want a good series to read, try the "Anne of Green gables" series by LM Montgomery. They are wonderful!
 
When you believe in God, good things may really happen  Apr 15, 2006
Twelve-year-old Emma Farley worries if her family will survive the cholera outbreak that was caused by the terrible flooding of the Ohio River. Emma wonders if her dreams of becoming an animal doctor will ever come true, because in Cincinnati in 1832, girls have to become wives and mothers instead of having careers. Emma tries to keep her dreams and her family alive during this hard time. What will happen to the people of Cincinnati and how will they ever get this mess cleaned up? Find out in this exciting story called Emma's Secret.

Emma's Secret is one of the many wonderful books in the Sisters In Time series. Emma's Secret kept me up all night long and I liked reading about this time period in history. Emma's Secret is a faith-based book that shows you how sometimes when you believe in God, good things may really happen. I think that this story could be improved by having more adventure and additional things happen. I really enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it to kids ages 9-12.
