To enter leave a comment on this post letting me know which of my upcoming books you are most excited for. The winner will be announced next week 🙂 Good luck and thank you Susan for taking the time to read my book. Hugs!
First Impressions – Impressive!
Jane Austen…Pride and Prejudice…Oh! What a wonderful author and novel! How could a modern day author POSSIBLY take one of literature’s greatest works and turn it in to something different…with an Amish twist no less? As an Austen fan, I was skeptical when I received my copy of Sarah Price’s First Impressions, first in her Amish Classics series. Upon reading the first few pages, this reader went from skeptic to supporter! First Impressions is impressive.
First Impressions follows the Blank sisters and their quests for love.The eldest, Jane, is right and true. She is smitten from the start with Charles Beachey, a well-to-do Amish farmer who has recently arrived in Pennsylvania from Ohio to take over the family farm. The next eldest, Lizzie, is nothing like Jane. She speaks her mind freely and often…and speaks sarcasm fluently. As for Charles’ friend Frederick Detweiler? Lizzie finds him to be a sorry excuse for a man – an Amish one at that. But it appears that Frederick has a secret or two that may just be a game-changer…for everyone.
I was given this novel in exchange for my honest review. Sarah Price’s writing is impeccable. She rounds out the story lines with fantastic characters like the ever-meddling mother, the laughable, kind-hearted father and the giddy, lovesick younger sisters. First Impressions can easily be read as a stand-alone. But like its Pride and Prejudice muse, I wanted the story to go on forever! To keep up with Jane Austen is an impressive feat and Sarah Price has done it.
Susan Ferrell and her husband make their home in the Atlanta Metro area. Although Susan struggles with chronic migraine headaches, she stays very busy as a stay-at-home mom to one very precocious 5-year old. While catching her breath, she feeds her Amishaholic tendencies by reading vast amounts of Amish literature!
