Title: The Imposter
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Publication Date: October 6, 2015
Synopsis: “Katrina Stoltzfus thought she had life and love all figured out: she was going to marry John and live happily ever after. Those plans started to crumble when her father moved the family to Stoney Ridge, then completely collapsed when John decided to marry someone else. Katrina is devastated. How could she have felt so loved, yet been so deceived?
As she struggles to face a future without him, a widow asks for her help to start a new business and Katrina quickly agrees. She needs time to heal her broken heart, to untangle her messy life, to find a purpose. What she doesn’t need is attention from Andy Miller, a farm hand who arrives at the widow’s farm just when help is most needed–and who always seems to say the right thing, and be in the right place, at the right time. Is Andy
for real, or too good to be true? Deceived once before, Katrina is determined to keep her feelings in check.
When a cascade of events is set in motion by some surprising information, the little Amish church is turned upside down. Soon, everyone has a stake in the outcome, and the community struggles to find the best response to an imposter in their midst. Can they forgive even the most deceitful deeds?”
Katrina Stoltzfus is nursing a broken heart. Her mother’s death was hard enough, but now her boyfriend walked away. Hurting, confused, and wondering how she’ll go on, Katrina moves in with an elderly widow.
Andy Miller hires on to work for the same widow. He’s charming, handsome, and mysterious. Everything Katrina doesn’t need right now. As more secrets flee the closet, will they bring these two together, or blow everything apart?
Some Amish fiction portrays the plain life as idyllic. This one doesn’t. It’s more true to life. The people are people first, Amish second. They have their faults, their struggles with life – not just religion – and that makes them very easy to relate to.
This is book 1 of a new series, The Bishop’s Family. While it wraps up part of the story, it leaves a lot hanging at the end. I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
