Quite possibly my favourite Fisher book yet: "The Imposter" by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Cover Art

about the book....

A heart once deceived should not be easily fooled again . . .

Katrina Stoltzfus thought she had life and love all figured out: she was going to marry John and live happily ever after. But as her plans crumble before her eyes, she struggles to face an uncertain future. When a widow asks for help starting a new business, 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 farmhand 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? She's been deceived once before, and she isn't planning on experiencing it again. 

my review....

You know what I was thinking when I closed the final page of this story? "If these were real people, I'd become Amish too, just to live among them." That's how much I loved these characters! Now, if you read the back of the book you might think that Katrina and Andy are the primary characters and so expect them to be your favourite. But while I found each of them to be wonderful characters in their own right, it is really Birdy who stole the show for me. Already considered an old maid in the Amish community, Birdy is convinced that no one will ever really love her enough to want to marry her. Because of this, she turns into a bundle of nerves every time she even comes near Katrina's father, David Stolzfus. Most people in their community are used to just passing her by without giving her much thought. And yet it is Birdy who captured my attention in this story as she discovers the gifts she has and the place God has given her. It was Birdy's story that brought tears to my eyes in the final pages of the book, and I dare you to keep your own eyes dry!

"The Imposter" is character-driven writing at its best, as this story will not only have you falling in love with the characters, but will hold you captive as you encounter one twist and turn after another.
You will enjoy encountering the nuances of the Amish culture, but you will also see yourself in their struggles and failures. You will encounter grace and forgiveness, and just want to linger among them for awhile.

Quite possibly, this is my favourite Fisher book yet! I highly recommend this novel and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
