The Imposter

I think Suzanne Woods Fisher is one of my favorite Amish storytellers. Her newest offering is a great example of her writing abilities. The Imposter is set in Lancaster County and uses a lot of the characters from her earlier novels.

Katrina Stoltzfus is in a pickle. She has been left in the lurch by her boyfriend, John, who is now affianced to someone else. Her heart is broken and she's having a hard time coming to terms with the situation. When Thelma, the bishop's aunt, falls, Katrina goes to live with her and take care of her. Thelma has a moss farm that is just getting off the ground and a farm hand who knows his moss. The last thing Katrina needs is another man in her life.

David Stoltzfus, Katrina's father, has been deemed in need of a wife by Hank. He wrote an ad for the Amish newspaper asking single women to apply. Because there are still four children at home, he needs help with his family--especially since Katrina moved out. What David hasn't noticed is that there is a single lady in his community who would love to be courted by him. He is also one of the ministers in the congregation whose life is not his own.

Suzanne has given the reader a bigger peek into the life of the Amish in Lancaster County. Each character has flaws and foibles, but also has strengths beyond their imaginings. This book continues with the Rose Hill and Eagle Hill characters and only adds more color to what Suzanne has already written.

Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a bit of moss for your next project.

My thanks to Revell for allowing me to read and review this book. My only obligation was to give my honest opinion about the book.
