The Fiddler: A Book Review

About The Book:

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.

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.

About The Author:

Beverly Lewis, born in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, is The New York Times bestselling author of more than eighty books. Her stories have been published in eleven languages worldwide. A keen interest in her mother's Plain heritage has inspired Beverly to write many Amish-related novels, beginning with The Shunning, which has sold more than one million copies and was recently made into an Original Hallmark Channel movie. In 2007 The Brethren was honored with a Christy Award. She has been interviewed by both national and international media, including Time magazine, the Associated Press, and the BBC. Beverly lives with her husband, David, in Colorado. Visit her Web site at for more information.

My Review:

It's another hit for author Beverly Lewis! The book is a great one for all fans of Amish fiction, but this time around you will brought deeper into the world of the Amish and how vastly different it truly is. There is a great mix of religion, and romance thrown in, to connect with readers and the book is very easy to read. The characters are all well developed and you will connect with at least one! I know I did. A truly fun read for all Amish fiction fans for sure. 

 It is the first book of the Home To Hickory Hollow and I really look forward to book two in order to see what happens to the various characters, particularly Michael and Amelia!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
