Wednesday’s Wanderer: Meet Emma Weaver from The Matchmaker

I am so excited for everyone to meet Emma Weaver from my upcoming book The Matchmaker. Here is a little about Emma and her antics 🙂

Emma Weaver is twenty-one years old and has found a passion for playing
matchmaker with her 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 bishop, with her friend Hannah.

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?

What readers are saying:

“The Matchmaker is both charming and beautiful. Sarah Price writes with an authenticity that pulls at the heartstrings and triumphs over self in a way that gives you renewed faith in love and friendship, showing us all the hand God has in our lives.”
—Sue Laitinen, book reviewer at Destination Amish

“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!”
—Diana Flowers, senior reviewer at Overcoming With God

  1. Ms. Price: I asked a similar comment about your Pride and Prejudice book and, if you answered, I apologize because I didn’t see it and I am interested.

    I’m male. Nevertheless, I read a lot of books about relationships and people that might fall in the “women’s fiction” or “romance – Amish style” genres, as well as many other genres. I’ve read Sandra Dallas, Willa Cather and Jane Smiley.

    I’ve tried 3 times, including once in 2014 (on Audible) to get through P & P. Without success. I do know that many classics need 50 to 80 pages to hook me. Eg, Thomas Hardy’s Mayor of Casterbridge. On my list of resolutions for 2015 is to ‘man-up’ and try again.

    So, to my questions. Is your new Emma book (or your P&P book) understandable without an Austen background? Look, I really loved your Plain series so I know I like your writing but … there are so many books and so little time and only a few $. Should I wait for a book from you that isn’t Austen themed?

    Many thanks for writing books I enjoy and I wish you an awesome writing year. Jon

  2. I went home last night and realized I’d asked you something impossible. How can you or anyone with a certain reading background (Austen) possibly ignore what you know to tell me, someone without that background, what a book is like to read without that background? I withdraw the question. It would be like a person who could see the color green telling me, who doesn’t, whether I can appreciate a landscape painted with many colors including green. I’ll just have to try the book. Thanks Ms. Price.
