From the Back Cover
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.
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a tale of love, uncertainty, and trusting God to write your story.

Katrina Stoltzfus is David’s oldest daughter. When Thelma Beiler hurts her shoulder, Katrina is asked to go stay with her. Thelma hired Andy Miller as a farmhand at Moss Hill. Andy is not from the community and Katrina can keep an eye on Thelma and Andy (to protect Thelma). Katrina has been depressed since her boyfriend, John broke up with her. Her father is hoping that Moss Hill and Thelma can keep Katrina busy and help her get over her hurt.
Birdy Glick is thirty-one years old and the brother of Freeman and Levi Glick (she is a big girl at 6’ 2”). She lives in a small house on the family property. She loves birds and gives bird watching tours at the Wild Bird Rescue and Animal Shelter. Her brother, Freeman has decided that she is to be the teacher at the new school (I am really not liking Freeman). Birdy is in love with David Stoltzfus (not that he notices). Whenever she is around him she gets extremely clumsy. Can Birdy get David to notice her before it is too late (thanks to Hank’s matchmaking)?
There are troubling times ahead for the community of Stoney Ridge, Pennsylvania with Bishop Freeman and his new ideas. Will David be able to save their community from a split? He might need a little divine intervention. I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Imposter. Some parts will just have you laughing out loud. The Imposter is well-written and keeps the reader engaged during the whole book. There are some great characters in this book and a lovely setting. I look forward to returning to Stoney Ridge in the next book in The Bishop’s Family series. I give The Imposter 5 out of 5 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of The Imposter from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Katrina loves John, to the point of desperation when John breaks up with her unexpectedly. In an effort to help her, Katrina's father, David, assigns her to help the widow Thelma Beiler on her moss farm. There, Katrina is loved unconditionally by Thelma, but soon learns that a moment of indiscretion can lead to a lifetime of consequences.
Andy Miller, Thelma's farmhand, seems too good to be true. The attraction between he and Katrina is undeniable.
David, Katrina's father, seems to have moved his family into a church district hornet's nest. Undercover dealings and gossip threaten to derail David's ministry and split the already struggling church. What does the Lord have planned for David as he navigates the mine field of the church.
I loved this book. I read a lot of Amish fiction, but get frustrated because so much of it is predictable and shallow. This book is a refreshing story. Not only well-written, but rich in spiritual truth. David and his family have depth, needing a full portion of God's grace to move forward. This book was a feast, one that I will remember for a long time.
" boys will be boys!" Great read, using it as my book club selection this month! This girls got talent!
The Bishop family begins here and what an interesting story that unfolds. So many interesting characters and so much going on. David can't reign his family members in they have Turned every which away. His quiet ways and unassuming hammer cause people to try and take advantage of him. Yet some people are just mean all buy themselves. Come visit Stoney Ridge and enjoy. There are many good spiritual applications that should help remind each of us of how fast & easy life can pass us by.
