Small Town Treasure
Five years ago, Emily Mannerson escaped small town living and moved to the big city where nobody knew "Poor little Emily" and her miserable background. Now an attorney, Emily longs for what she left behind...her adopted mother and high-school sweetheart.
Fire Captain Matthew Westerly treasures his small town of Journey Creek and values faith, family, and friendships. When he rescues Emily from a horrific car accident, he's determined to win her back and make up for lost years.
Can a big city girl and a small town boy discover their true treasure? Will they trust God to work a miracle?
“Engine Eleven on scene. Single car accident with a four-story brick building. Engine Eleven has command.” Fire Captain Matthew Westerly spoke into the radio, his voice gruff.
Question 1: Matthew enjoyed his job most of the time, but experienced a week that drained him, sapped his energy and motivation. How do you handle times like that in your job?
Question 2: Do you know an older person who shouldn't be driving but is reluctant to relinquish their car keys? How do you handle this?
Question 3: Have you ever ran into an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend? How did you react?
Question 4: Emily escaped small town living and moved into the big city where nobody knew her miserable background. Have you ever felt like moving to escape your past? Does it work?
Question 5: Matthew intended to work out his career in the fire service, just like his dad and two generations before him. Do you experience a sense of pride and commitment in your chosen profession? Why or why not?
Question 6: Journey Creek was not how Emily remembered it. Have you returned to a small town with vivid memories, only to find out that the town, the people, weren't as you remembered? Did the people change? Or was your memory skewed?
Question 7: As a busy lawyer, Emily rarely took time to enjoy festivities. Do you find yourself so busy that you rarely celebrate holidays with family and friends?
Question 8: Matthew recognized that God was working in their lives, helping them see the importance of family and the joining of their hearts and lives together. Can you see God's hand at work in your life?
Question 9: Matthew determined to support Emily in whichever decision she made, to stay or return to Raleigh. Is your significant other supportive of your decisions? Why or why not?
Question 10: Matthew wants a forever with Emily and is willing to move to make that happen. Would you be willing to do the same for someone you love? Why or why not?
