The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis* A Review
ABOUT THE FIDDLER
Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania--the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis' celebrated Amish novels began--with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.
Amelia "Amy" DeVries, a 24-year-old violinist, is disillusioned with life and love. She takes a side trip through the Pennsylvania mountains. She drops her cell phone in water and it can’t be used. 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.

Beverly Lewis always writes such fantastic books. The Fiddler is another of her series Home to Hickory Hollow. We meet many new characters and revisit some of our old favorites.
The theme of this story is to do with your life what God and you want to do. In both Amy/Amelia and Michaels lives they want to please others, like their parents and friends so they keep hanging on to the parents dream of what their child should do with there lives. Amy and Michael aren’t happy, but love their parents so very much. Will they sacrifice their own dreams and live their lives for others?
Things start to change when they have a chance meeting and they can talk to each other like old friends and share their hearts.
One of the old characters from this series is called the Wise Woman/Ella Mae whom I really love. She really has the wisdom because she refers everything to the Lord and Bible. She has such a kindly way about her and she loves and cares for everyone she meets.
This is a wonderful story to add to your Beverly Lewis collection.
