About the Author

Sarah Price’s family emigrated from Europe in 1705, settling in Pennsylvania as the area's first wave of Mennonite families. At nineteen, she befriended an Amish family and lived on their farm. Twenty-five years later, she splits her time between her family in the NYC Metro area and a home that she shares with an Amish woman in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania where she retreats to reflect and write. As a masterful storyteller, Sarah Price prides herself on presenting an authentic Amish experience for her readers.

Loved this story and loved the way Sarah takes us on a journey with the characters that teaches all how pride and prejudice can negatively impact our lives. Love all Sarah's books. I can't wait for the next installment of her Plain series!

Loved this book  --   I must say that this was a wonderful story and the way Sarah tells it is really amazing. You will feel as if you are right there with the Blank family. Sarah made me stop and think about how many times I have had to change my opinion of someone after a first impression. As I get older I like to think that I have changed and try to give a person a chance before forming my opinion. Keep in mind that it works both ways on forming opinions, it isn't always thinking bad about someone and having to change your mind but beware of people you think will be trustworthy but turn out to be just the opposite. I would recommend "First Impressions" to anyone that likes Amish stories, stories of faith and if you liked "Pride and Prejudice". The second book in the series, "The Matchmaker" will be out February, 3, 2015 and I'm anxiously waiting for it.

I loved First Impressions, and am very guilty of this sin, and have regretted it a number of times. I have told others that I am quick to judge, and then silently regret my impression, and was told I am not alone. Yes this story is about the decision to judge, and very quickly at that, which I guess I do too. The first time you meet someone, and ah how wrong you can be, and that is exactly what Elizabeth “Lizzie” Blank does when Frederick Detweiler comes to Lancaster Amish Community. Lizzie’s Mother has five daughters and is anxious to have them married of, what a desire for a mother. She doesn’t seem to care who they marry, of course they must be Amish, but age, looks, and jobs have nothing to do with it. Thank goodness her Dad is a smart and wonderful man, and in this patriarchal society is the final word. This is a very interesting story and you never see where help is coming from, and was thoroughly surprised. You will love this book, it keeps you hopping and your heart will break and heal. The story is based on the original Pride and Prejudice, and now that is in my to be read pile, TBR. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did, and I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I received this book from the Publisher Realms and the Author Sarah Price and was not required to give a positive review.
