Book Review~The Fiddler

One of my favorite authors of Amish fiction is Beverly Lewis, who is given much of the credit for beginning this genre in 1997.  I've read many of her books, and am always excited when she writes something new!  The Fiddler is the first in a brand new series, Home to Hickory Hollow.  I couldn't wait for it to arrive in the mail, and read it quickly within a few days.  Beverly Lewis did it again-an excellent story!

Englisher Amelia Devries has trained her entire life to be a concert violinist, her father's dream.  She also loves to play the fiddle for crowds, which is a fact she is keeping from her father.  She feels she is at a crossroads-does she continue with her promising career touring as a classical violinist? She also dreams of having her own family and settling down. 

Michael Hostetler is part of an Old Order Amish community, but is defying his communities rules and getting a higher education.  He has not yet become a member of the church, and is torn between the Amish and English worlds.  Then he meets Amelia, and brings her to his community, where she falls in love with his Amish friends and family.  They also both realize they have feelings for each other, and must decide which direction their lives should take. 

*Disclaimer: I was given this book free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
