The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis Book Review

Fiddler, The (Home to Hickory Hollow) by Beverly Lewis

From the publisher:
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:

Things I liked were in this book:
Amish stories that really describes their real struggles in livelihood and a pure love story.

Although the story started off good, in the middle it became kind of dry.  I felt that the characters dragged on.  I just couldn't wait for the story to end.  It just seem to lack substance in the love story.  For a Beverly Lewis book this was disappointing.  I've loved her other Amish books.

The cover of the book is just stunning.  It really portrays how I would see Ameila dress.

This book did nothing for my spirituality.  It was just a book for brief entertainment. 
It was very clean and modest.

I'd give this book 3 out of 5 stars. 

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
