The Fiddler

From the back of the book:  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.

My review:  The name Beverly Lewis pretty much sums up the content of this book.  This is another Amish story by a well-loved author.  In this book Ms. Lewis takes the reader back to Hickory Hollow, the setting for several of her other books.  It was fun to catch up a little with some of her characters, as well as be introduced to some new ones.  The story-line was enjoyable albeit predictable.  I think there are probably many readers that can relate to the expectations both Amelia and Michael feel they have to live up to.  I look forward to reading more about these two characters.  I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
