This story is amazing. Beverly Lewis is a true storyteller! I can't wait to read the next one and all of her others!
If you want a great romance, an endearing journey and enjoy reading about a heartfelt relationship with God, this is a book for you! And I dare say all of Miss Lewis' books fit the same category.
Read it. You won't be sorry! ( )

The Fiddler
by Beverly Lewis

Having read several books by Lewis in the past, I found the basic explanations of Amish ways in this story--together with Lewis's rendition of Amish speech patterns (“’Ach no’ … ‘But maybe you know that already, ain’t?’ …. ‘I doubt she’s back for gut.’” pp. 153, 182)--familiar to tiresome. But those things certainly make the book accessible to someone who isn't familiar with Amish fiction.

The Fiddler is quintessential Beverly Lewis. Her fans as well as lovers of the Amish genre will find this gentle romance a pleasant reading interlude.

The above review is an excerpt from a longer review at Blogcritics.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher for the purpose of writing a review. ( )

New from #1 Bestselling Author Beverly Lewis

Amelia "Amy" DeVries, a 24-year-old violinist, is disillusioned with life and love after the collapse of her long-running romance. Weary of endless rehearsals and performances, Amy sets out on a road trip through the Pennsylvania mountains. She leaves her cell phone behind so life's demands can't intrude on her solitude. She doesn't know, nor care, where she will end up.

When her car breaks down deep in the mountains, Amy realizes the flaw in her "no cell phone" plan. She abandons her car and walks the winding roads, searching for help. Following the smell of woodsmoke and the sound of music, she finds a rustic log cabin. There she meets a young Amishman--and through him a community--that will change her life forever.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:04:29 -0400)

"A wrong turn in a rainstorm leads Englisher Amelia Devries to Michael Hostetler, and the young Amishman's charming Old Order community of Hickory Hollow. Despite their very different backgrounds, Amelia and Michael both feel hemmed in by the expectations of others and struggle with how to find room for their own hopes. And what first seems to be a chance encounter might just change their lives forever"--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
