From what I gather, no woman wants to get married when they're Amish! No, let me retract- most of the marriages are arranged with no love involved, so when you think you're about to marry and it's to the Amish man of your dreams, that's a Big Deal! But what happens when the man you think you're going to marry doesn't want to marry you? It's a twist unheard of! And sums up the first part of The Imposter, by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

When I first began this book, I was a bit confused. There was so much going on in this tale, I thought I was getting confused from time time, on who was speaking. I had to get my storylines straight before I lost interest. Thankfully, I did. The story is about Katrina- the girl who had everything figured out. Who she was marrying and how her life would fit the traditional mold- except she wanted to marry John and live her happily ever after. But her love ran away and left her shattered! It's not until she meets Andy that she learns about herself and what to expect and not expect of others. But so much more grows within her- in any woman who learns a lesson.
I really appreciated the lessons in this book. I love when you can walk away from a Christian book, nodding in approval. It wasn't one that I'd run off telling of how it changed my life or that I'd even read it more than twice (especially since I've never read my favorite book twice), but there was substance to it. From what I understand, many of the characters in this book are in other books by Fisher, making a network I may decide to dive into, but I'm just not sure yet. The world of Amish romance is new to me and takes some getting used to.
Another aspect I enjoyed was the supportive father in this story. Katrina's father, David, was supportive, even though everything in Katrina's life was against the core values of the Amish community. But that's another storyline within the story. I can't say much because so much is going on in this book- and I don't am totally against SPOILERS! You'll just have to pick up your own copy of the book. :)
So if you're looking for a turn-about in the story of arranged marriages, with the guy as the Runaway Bride (lol), check out Suzanne's The Imposter. On to the next book!📚
