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!”
About the Author
Sarah Price

Ms. Price always knew that she wanted to be a writer. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, she now writes full-time from her thirty-acre horse ranch in Archer, Florida where her daughter, Cat, trains wild mustangs. The simpler pace of life living on her farm in northern Florida reminds Ms. Price of her upbringing in a Mennonite family as well as the many years that she spent living among the Amish communities in Pennsylvania beginning in 1978 until she moved to Florida.

During the early 1700s, the Preiss family arrived in America aboard an old sailing vessel called the Patience. The family left Europe, escaping Catholic persecution for their Anabaptist beliefs. Sarah Price comes from a long line of devout Mennonites, including numerous church leaders and ministers throughout the years. Her involvement with the Amish dates back to 1978 when her Mennonite grandparents took her to Lancaster County. Her writing reflect accurate and authentic stories based upon her own experiences with several Amish communities.

Ms. Price holds advanced degrees in Communication (MA), Marketing (MBA), and Educational Leadership (PhD). She is also an ordained minister.
