A Book Review: The Fiddler
Bethany House Publishers sent me a free copy of The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis, in exchange for my honest review.
And honestly--I loved it! Beverly Lewis never disappoints!
This story begins with an accidental meeting.
Amelia DeVries is an acclaimed violinist and also a "secret" country music fiddler. She gets caught in a storm and meets Michael Hostetler, a young Amish man struggling with the decision to be baptized into the Amish faith or "go fancy."
Both characters are facing the same dilemma. They want to respect and "obey" their parents, but at the same time, Amelia and Michael have their own dreams that are very different from what their parents expect.
If you've never read Amish fiction, the Home to Hickory Hollow series would be a perfect place to start. I enjoyed reading about the Amish lifestyle with a contemporary twist.
And since I'm a piano teacher, I loved the music aspect as well.
Book 2, The Bridesmaid, comes out in September.
It's definitely on my wishlist!
