The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis is a love story about the unlikely couple: An Amish man and a classically trained violinist. Amelia Devries is a classical violinist who has found she loves fiddling as well. On her way home from a fiddling concert, she gets lost in a storm and happens upon the cabin that Michael Hostetler is staying at in the mountains. They become fast friends and Amelia spends the weekend in his little community of Hickory Hollow. The story takes the reader into both Michael’s and Amelia’s struggles and brings them together in the end.
I had a hard time getting into this book, but I cannot really pinpoint why. After a few chapters, however, I became engrossed. I always enjoy Mrs. Lewis’ books and this was no exception. She explored each main character’s difficult decision and brought them together beautifully.
This book is a must read for fans of Amish fiction.
