First Impressions: An Amish Tale of Pride and Prejudice

prideAt one point or another we are all guilty of forming an opinion of a person based on a first impression. Whether you are met with a well-kept and well-groomed appearance or a rumpled hot mess, more than likely, you will make assumptions. And that’s exactly what Elizabeth “Lizzie” Blank did when Frederick Detweiler strolled into her life. His pompous attitude and fancy clothes coupled with his sheer look of disdain every time he glances at her with his piercing eyes, leaves Lizzie feeling ferhoodled. The more she comes in contact with him the more right her first impression of him feels: he is a stick in the mud. Lizzie becomes quite sassy during her run-ins with the dashing Mr. Detweiler which perplexes her even more. He stirs her up something terrible. She has never in all her life, met such a contrary man! His sour puss attitude grates on her nerves and rattles her emotions. Something with the fella just doesn’t add up. Why is he so hostile? Why does he act so superior to others?  And why does she care, anyway?

A series of events occur and Frederick’s tough exterior begins to soften. Lizzie starts to see him in a different light and she can’t help but wonder if her first impression (and what an impression it is) was wrong. Why was she so quick to cast judgement on a man she barely knew? What does that say about her own character?

In true Sarah Price fashion, she was able to take a classic book and put her own spin on it as only she could. Her ability to capture the hearts of readers with endearing characters and compelling stories are the qualities that make her stand out among fellow authors. Readers know that when Sarah Price writes a book, they will be both captivated and fully charmed by her one-of-a-kind characters. First Impressions will certainly catapult her to the top spot of the best Amish fiction authors. Fans will be pleasantly surprised and delighted with her adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Sarah Price’s First Impressions has the makings of a true classic.

  2. Why is Frederick’s face photo-shopped on the cover of the book? Is there a significance to the face you placed over the actual cover art?
