Book Review: The Fiddler by Lewis

Amelia Devries is a rising musician struggling to find her identity in her career. Michael Hostetler is a young Amish man who is trying to find out if his life path really lies with his Old Order family. Their stories intersect when Amelia's car breaks down in a storm just near the cabin Michael has isolated himself in to contemplate his future. These two young people from different worlds find they have more in common than they realized as they learn from each other and the God who made them.

Beverly Lewis's The Fiddler is a sweet story of finding your own way amid the expectations of well meaning loved ones.  The writing style is easy and readable. Many Amish novels take you into one 'foreign' world to the typical American reader. This book explored both the Amish world and the world of professional musician, while flowing both together so well it seems to take place in the "real world". I thoroughly enjoyed the journey of the story. This is the perfect book to curl up with on a rainy day.

I received this book free from Bethany House in exchange for my unbiased review.
