About the Book

Emma Weaver is twenty-one years old and has found a passion for playing matchmaker with her Amish friends. Her neighbor, Gideon King, warns her about interfering in people’s lives, but she disregards his advice and plans to set up Paul, the son of the Amish bishop, with her friend Hannah.

But when Paul misinterprets Emma’s attention, believing she has feelings for him, he begins asking her to ride in his buggy after Sunday singings and shows up at her house for Friday evening visits. As she tries to repair the damage that’s been done and mend the hearts that have been broken, she finds herself in trouble with the community. Will she learn her lesson and stop meddling in the affairs of others? Will she find a love of her own?

Endorsements
“In her own distinctive voice, Sarah Price has created a wealth of memorable, delightful characters in The Matchmaker! Readers will love this unique blend of the Amish and Jane Austen’s classic tale Emma—the story of a meddling, opinionated young lady who must learn the hard way that the best-laid plans may sometimes go awry! With the unpredictable twists and turns that Sarah Price is so well known for, and a charming main character who is not your typical Amish heroine, this harmonious mix is truly a match made in heaven!”
