Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

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. 

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sarah Price
Located in: Morristown, NJ
Submitted: June 11, 2014

    Tell us a little about yourself.  With over 30 books published, Price is a prolific writer that has topped the charts of Amazon was ranked #13 on the bestseller list for ECPA (June 2013) and continues to earn recognition worldwide for her authentic portrayal of the Amish culture and religion without sacrificing literary finesse.

Originally publishing as an Indie author, she now publishes with Realms (Charisma House) and Waterfall Press (Brilliance Publishing).

Her family originally came from Pennsylvania, a long heritage of Mennonites, which is how her interest in the Amish began over 35 years ago.

Price has earned degrees from Drew University (BA), Fairleigh Dickerson University (MA), and Centenary College (MBA). She is currently A.B.D. at Trident University. Price is a life-long resident of Morristown.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I love classic literature as much as I love the Amish. Most of my books are different, focused on sharing my experience growing up in a Mennonite family and spending so much time living among the Amish. A few years ago, I had the idea to retell Jane Austen's books in an Amish environment. After all, the themes of Austen's novels are timeless. Blending my love of the classics with the Amish culture and religion was challenging in a fun and inspiring way.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A lot of my readers have never read Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. Now, I'm hearing from a lot of them that, after reading First Impressions, they are exploring Jane Austen's book. I think that is an amazing compliment and I'm thrilled that my writing has inspired people to step outside of their comfort zone and read her amazing books.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I believe that the challenge of retelling Jane Austen's book in the Amish environment helped me raise the bar on my own writing. My goal isn't just to write books but to write quality literature. I feel that First Impressions took my writing to a new and very exciting level.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Obviously Jane Austen (LOL) as well as other authors of classic literature (Victor Hugo, Charles Dickens, the Bronte Sisters, etc.). On a more contemporary level, I'm a huge fan of Max Lucado, Karen Kingsbury, and Tracy Chevalier.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  On May 31, 2013, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I never once asked the question "Why me?" Having breast cancer has been one of the best things that has happened to me--it has changed my life. Despite the complications and the treatments (which I'm still going through), my life is richer, fuller, and happier since that day. God knows what He is doing. He never gives us more than we can handle. And, even when you feel as though your life is full of storms, you can still dance in the rain. :D Jer 29:11
