"First Impressions" by Sarah Price

Set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, book one of The Amish Classics series is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, covering the same issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage within the Amish community.

SERIES DESCRIPTION: The Amish Classics Series is a retelling of novels by Jane Austen in a contemporary Amish setting. The main story lines are accurately followed but told within the Amish culture and religion.

 I just finished "First Impressions" by Sarah Price and loved it. I got the movie Pride and Prejudice well actually 2, just not sure which one would be the best to watch) from the library so now I am going to read a little bit of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin, which is what Sarah's book is based on but an Amish version, then watch the movie tonight or tomorrow. I don't have to read Jane Austin's book to understand Sarah's book, but being the addict ( book) I am you all know I must read the inspiration for Sarah's book. 

With all the above said I give " First Impressions" by Sarah Price five stars.  Sarah took a classic (one that I haven't read and made me want to read it). I haven't finished reading the classic or watched the movie but from what I have read and watched I can see that Sarah followed the book but from an amish point of view. Once again I am glad that Sarah's book did not disappoint this reader.

If you have read the classics " Pride and Prejuice" by Jane Austin then you will want to read " First Impressions" by Sarah Price, and even if you haven't but you love the Amish genre you will want to add this book to your library. If you are a Sarah Price fan you will definitely  want to read, or better yet own this book.

This is a love story between Elizabeth and Frederick Detweiler but they don't like each other at first.  The main reason is that they think each other to full of pride.  Elizabeth has four sisters and her mother wants them to get married and makes sure every one knows. This story shows that "First Impressions" are sometimes wrong.

I was given a pfd file for my honest review and I have given it and I don't usually buy a book if I have a copy in any form but this one will be the exception I will buy an ebook and it will have a place of honor in my kindle library.  Well done Sarah Price!
