The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis

The FiddlerThe Fiddler by Beverly Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just finished this wonderful Beverly Lewis book, and was not disappointed!
Wanted to move to Hickory Hollow, and find the peace that Amelia Devries found there.
You have the feeling of God leading Amelia to the peace she is so looking for. She is a Classically trained violinist, and to find some enjoyment, a self trained talented fiddler.
Michael Hostetler is a 25 year old Amishman, who loves his family, but wants more in life. He wants to be draftsman, and is having a hard time, when province lands Amelia at his doorstep.
Both love their families and live their lives for their families, with hopes for something different. So enjoyed the people of Hickory Hollow...especially the Wise Woman Ella Mae, and Joanna Kurtz. How I would love friends like them.
I highly recommend this very fast enjoyable read. I want to go back!!

I received this book from the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.

  7. I reviewed it, too. I wanted to Google the pieces she played so I could hear what she was hearing and playing. I did and put one on my blog (after I did the review). Here is that delightful music link: http://chatwithvera.blogspot.com/2012/06/dvorak-humoresque-yo-yo-ma-itzhak.html

    Enjoy!
