An Amish retelling of a beloved Jane Austin classic | “First Impressions” by Sarah Price


OK. I’ll admit it. I almost put this book down and I might not have even picked it back up – had it not been for mom.

She picked it up and would not give it back until she finished it.

Then she handed it to me and told me I had to read it! So of course I did!

And yes… it may have a bit of a slow start but give it a chance. It won’t take any time until you are pulled right in to the story.

And WHAT a story!

I never could have expected such a powerful story with so many little surprises and some absolutely priceless laugh-out-loud moments.

Realms was a genius to snap up Sarah Price when they had the chance!

This series is going to be amazing – I can tell!

And while I’ve never been much of a fan of the original stories by Jane Austin, I can tell I’m going to LOVE these! But then… the Amish aspect brings so much to it and Sarah’s writing is positively wonderful!

Whether you enjoy Amish fiction or not, if you enjoy a good romance with fun quirky characters and a solid moral – you will LOVE this book!


And here is what Realms has to say about “First Impressions”:

Will pride and prejudice keep the Blank sisters from finding love?

With five daughters and no sons, Daed and Maem Blank are anxious to find their girls suitors who might eventually take over their family farm. When news arrives that Charles Beachey, the son of a prominent Amish farmer, will be returning from Ohio with his cousin Frederick, they are hopeful that the young men might be good matches for their daughters.

The oldest daughter, Jane, starts courting Charles, a well-mannered and very respectful young man, but her younger sister Lizzie is not interested in either courtship or Frederick. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him, finding him full of pride and disdain for her family’s way of life. But in a community and culture where pride is scorned, Lizzie must learn that first impressions can be dangerous and people are not always who they seem to be.

This Amish retelling of the popular Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice is a beautiful take on the power of love to overcome class boundaries and prejudices that will win your heart.
