Also Available In
Will pride and prejudice keep the Blank sisters from finding love?

With five daughters and no sons, Daed and Maem Blank are anxious to find their girls suitors who might eventually take over their family farm. When news arrives that Charles Beachey, the son of a prominent Amish farmer, will be returning from Ohio with his cousin Frederick, they are hopeful that the young men might be good matches for their daughters.

The oldest daughter, Jane, starts courting Charles, a well-mannered and very respectful young man, but her younger sister Lizzie is not interested in either courtship or Frederick. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him, finding him full of pride and disdain for her family's way of life. But in a community and culture where pride is scorned, Lizzie must learn that first impressions can be dangerous and people are not always who they seem to be.

This Amish retelling of the popular Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice is a beautiful take on the power of love to overcome class boundaries and prejudices that will win your heart.

an engaging re-telling
4 stars By Marija, Aug 19 2018
As a big fan of Jane Austen, I was intrigued by the idea of retelling 'Pride and Prejudice' in a modern Amish setting. Somehow, Sarah Price makes it work, and the result is an really engaging novel with likeable characters. Lizzie Blank really IS Lizzie Bennet from the very first scene, as she walks barefoot through fields, shooing wayward chickens from her path. The story sticks very close to the orginal plot - almost too close at times: I found the 'Charlotte Lucas' character to be not very convincing in her resons to marry Lizzie's less-than-appealing cousin. But overall, I think Austen fans will enjoy this novel.
