Review: The Imposter by:Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Imposter (The Bishop's Family #1)
About the Book:
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?

My Review:
 It's funny sometimes, really ironic how we go about our lives with certain plans in mind only to have them dashed and then we are sent scrabbling trying to repair it all and get back on track. Katrina is taken completely off guard when her plans go awry. She had her life carefully planned out, she was to marry John but her family and their obligations messed that all up. John was not what she thought he was and he marries someone else.

 Katrina has to find a way to fix all of this somehow, but how? She is offered a spot in someone's business and she wants to use this time as a time of healing so she takes the woman up on her offer. What she didn't bargain for was the attentions of another young man by the name of Andy Miller.

 A story full of promise and a good future just like the Bible verse Jer. 29:11 this book provides the characters that the story surrounds just that. Katrina is afraid of being hurt once again and she isn't so willing to chance it. The characters and the story line are perfect for a television series. There is always something go on besides the romance angle. I like the author's book because of this very thing. A great read for a fall day!
