    1. a wunderbar gut novel! a classic translated into amish life - and very fun to read. definitely going to read more from this author.

    2. 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 i [...]

    3. First Impressions is the first book in the Amish Classics series by Sarah Price. This was a sweet Amish romance book, but also a retelling of Jane Austen's beloved classic, "Pride and Prejudice", which I have read before. At first, it was a little boring to me. Why so many people like fairytale retellings is because of the twists and excitement and new spins the authors put on classic tales. This was just Pride and Prejudice in a modern/Amish setting. I definitely would have appreciated some sor [...]

    4. "First impressions can be dangerous and people are not always who they seem to be." [from the back cover]Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is pretty much a staple for those of us who love historical romance novels. Literary experts tell us that Austen developed the pattern for romance stories that touch the readers' hearts most, a pattern modern stories still follow today more than 200 years later. Austen wanted her readers to experience the "happily ever after" ending that she herself never exp [...]

    5. A Fascinating Tale of Pride and Prejudice!In her own eloquent, exquisite style, author Sarah Price has penned a delightful Amish tale — reminiscent of the timeless classic by the memorable Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.Lizzie Blank lives a contented life on a modest farm with her parents and four sisters, in a close knit Amish community in Pennsylvania. The Blank household – especially Lizzie's mother – is abuzz with excitement upon learning that the rental farm next door would soon be [...]

    6. BACK OF THE BOOK BLURBWill 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- [...]

    7. I loved this book. It was well written and kept to the character and story of Austen’s P&P. It gave a new dimension to the feelings and beliefs of the Amish congregation as compared to the feelings and beliefs of Austen’s time period. I was amazed at how Price kept us involved in a community that is vastly closed to us English. It took a little adjusting to the name changes and situations but that was soon forgotten as I was pulled along in the story. I kept waiting for the next happenin [...]

    8. What a exceptional read this was. This book was filled with humor, charm and warmth that made the last page come all too soon. A lot of Amish fiction wrote now seems to encompass just as many English characters as Amish; and this book was a true to the last page story of a Amish family and surrounding friends and ups and downs across the miles. Everyone finding their way in most unexpected places. You will love Jane, Elizabeth and snicker at their most unusual mother. Charlotte will help you rem [...]

    9. I just finished this book by Ms. Price and It is just as good as the buggy ride.Her description of the Amish and how they interact with each other as a family is interesting.I could picture Frederick with his unsmiling way, and to find out from him how he perceived her family, her mother and sisters, it must have hurt her feelings bad. Sometimes when we are told the truth it hurts us deeply, and we tend to get mad and hate the person who told us, but Lizzie did a lot of thinking and pondering in [...]

    10. Excellent!!"These were all good questions, questions whose answers would come in due time, she realized. But learning from them could be even more important than getting the answers, for life had a way of constantly changing. Still, there were moments when everything appeared to return to its rightful place, like the scattered pieces of a puzzle coming together to form a beautiful picture.""Indeed, despite their initial pride and prejudices-the very two traits that ultimately united them- God ha [...]

    11. Wonderful Amish version of Pride & Prejudice!!I love classics!! And I wasn’t sure what to expect with an Amish version of a beloved Jane Austen classic, but it was wonderful! It followed the original Jane Austen story, but with an Amish twist and a few minor tweaks here and there. I appreciate the simple style of writing and forward storyline (not too wordy, stays focused on the characters, etc.). I definitely recommend!

    12. I really enjoyed this book. The characters came to life. I liked how Lizzie would react to something and instantly knew she had sinned and needed to ask for forgiveness. This was such a fun take on "Pride and Prejudice".

    13. The cover isn't the exact one I have, because Frederick looks better on mine :)But anyway, it was an awesome version of Pride and Prejudice.

    14. It was not a bad book but i found that while it was interesting to read about Amish way of life and what is involved, it got a bit too restrictive for me. The limitations that are placed on main characters are in some ways more so then Regency limitations, and for me it made book to slow and lacking the intrigue.

    15. First Impressions è un originale retelling dell'austeniano Orgoglio e Pregiudizio.La storia è infatti ambientata a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, nella comunità Amish.Avevo in mente da tempo di leggere un romanzo che illustrasse tale stile di vita, ed una rivisitazione del capolavoro di Jane Austen mi è sembrata un'opportunità perfetta!Mi è piaciuto molto il modo in cui la scrittrice ha saputo adattare la storia originale al nuovo ambiente, e rendere il tutto naturale e non forzato. Ho ap [...]

    16. At 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 f [...]

    17. "First Impressions" is the first in The Amish Classics Series by Sarah Price. The story parallels Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice." The author has blended a compelling story of Amish tradition and values with integrity and familiarity. Based in Leola, Pennsylvania with glimpses into Holmes County, Ohio, the similarities and differences within the Amish communities are well defined and factual. The Amish culture is steeped in tradition and rich in history as detailed by the author who knows [...]

    18. Sarah Price has done it again, leaving my in AWE after reading one of her books and spiritually filled. GOD has surely blessed Sarah Price with a gift of writing and to write His messages even if they are fictional.I truly loved Sarah Price's version of Pride and Prejudice over the original. It was a page turner and makes you want to read the whole book in one sitting.In the Amish culture the oldest son or youngest son is to inherit the family farm --depending on the district depends on which so [...]

    19. An Amish tale of Pride and Prejudice…Honestly, when you begin reading, this story doesn’t grab you… it seems refreshing normal… Sarah begins this story by describing the sunset and the peaceful surroundings on the farm… I could hear the robins, see the cows, chickens, a rooster, and the barefoot young girl wearing a prayer kapp, walking to the mailbox – to find a letter the family has been waiting for…Somehow I didn’t expect the mother to be so impatient, so scheming, so nervous, [...]

    20. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression! Lizzie Blank thought handsome Frederick Detweiller to be an arrogant, proud, and rude man.Lizzie was one of five daughters and, with the absence of sons, was the one to help her Dat with the outside chores. She loved her life on the family farm. She loved spending time with her Dat and had no interest in courting and leaving home. Her maam, however, was most anxious to marry her daughters off in order to gain sons to work their farm. [...]

    21. I loved First Impressions, and am very guilty of this sin, and have regretted it a number of times. I have told others that I am quick to judge, and then silently regret my impression, and was told I am not alone. Yes this story is about the decision to judge, and very quickly at that, which I guess I do too. The first time you meet someone, and ah how wrong you can be, and that is exactly what Elizabeth “Lizzie” Blank does when Frederick Detweiler comes to Lancaster Amish Community. Lizzie [...]

    22. I love Pride and Prejudice so when I saw this "Amish" version of Pride and Prejudice I was intrigued!Five daughters and no sons! Not a great thing for an Amish farmer but to his credit Daed Blank (and Maem) love their girls. But how will their daughters, all five of them, find worthy husbands?!? When word gets out that Amish young men, Charles and his cousin Frederick, are returning from Ohio Daed is hopeful that his daughters will have a chance at marriage. Jane, the oldest, begins dating Charl [...]

    23. 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 som [...]

    24. What a wonderful story!! I loved it!! In fact, I have spent all day today reading it; could not put it down. I am so glad it was chosen for our group read. Otherwise, I probably would not have read it.I have been under the apparently mistaken impression that Sarah Price's books were only available as e-books. Since I don't do e-books, I have never read any of her books. I was pleasantly surprised to find a paperback copy of First Impressions: An Amish Tale of Pride and Prejudice in our local lib [...]

    25. I'm very familiar with Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice', and have read many different settings of the story. I would never have thought about translating it to an Amish setting, but I'm so glad Sarah Price did!First of all, the characters are spot-on. It was almost as if she took what was in my mind regarding Lizzie, Jane, Bingley (Charles Beachy), Darcy (Frederick Detweiler), and so forth, and laid them out there on the page for me to enjoy. Maem and Lydia were just as cringeworthy in this b [...]

    26. Sarah Price has done it again! She has woven a classic Jane Austen into the Amish life. I was so entranced with the story and the characters. They were so believable in their character flaws of pride and prejudice. Sarah Price reminds us of God's love and words throughout the book as it truly becomes a lesson of how we view others without truly knowing them first. Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" is one of my all-time favorite tales. Sarah Price has truly mastered it as an Amish take and I ca [...]

    27. Fairly enjoyable rewind of a most beloved tale in a new setting. I love re-tellings or twists on a fairy tale so I decided to try this. It was good, but the original kept intruding and I found some of the names confusing because of that. It was actually very well doneI probably should have given more stars, but I am a hard grader, I guess, and it wasn't outstanding *enough* for me to bump up my rating.

    28. I won this book in a giveaway. I actually really enjoy reading books that take place within the Amish community. I find their way of living fascinating and refreshing. This was a cute little love story that teaches us that people are not always what they seem and you shouldn't judge them without knowing them. Once I sat down and actually started reading it I couldn't put it down. It was so good.
