Book Review: The Fiddler

Here is a brief excerpt: "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." This novel was a very easy read. It was of a very simple Amish life and some struggles that the main characters had to face. I liked that there were a couple underlying "conflicts" in there between Amelia and her musical career, Michael and his family life and then between Amelia and Michael themselves. This novel isn't full of thrills or "oh my goodness I can't put this down" moments but if you are looking for something to read without having to think very much this is for you. It was a lovely book to sit back and relax with and to just enjoy being wrapped up in the lives of Amelia and Michael.
