The Imposter by Suzanne Woods Fisher (review by Cathy)

The Imposter

From Goodreads:

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 deeds?

My review:

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book by Suzanne Woods Fisher. After reading this one, I began to wonder why!

This author is very gifted and in this book, she’s at her best.

I adored the characters and the storyline. I usually have a favorite character in a book, however in this book I had several.

David is a wonderful character and even though he is a preacher, he isn’t the typical Amish preacher I expected him to be. His love and understanding for his children were so moving. Birdy was such a caring and giving character that she was someone I’d like to have as friend.

Of course there are some characters that I didn’t like. I still found myself interested in reading them, too.

The Imposter is hard to put down once you start reading it. There’s quite a few twists and turns that will keep you engaged throughout. I’m looking forward to reading more in this stories.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

  1. Loved this review! Thanks for the specific mention of David as a minister–so glad he took you by surprise. His character is based on an Amish bishop I met a few years ago. Nothing like I expected. Those Amish…they keep surprising me! Thank you for reading my book, reviewing it so carefully, and sharing it with your blog readers. Warmly, Suzanne
