The Fiddler

Amelia Devries is a successful violinist who is still trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. She enjoys playing the violin, but she has also found a passion in playing the fiddle. When her agent finds out she has been playing fiddle with a band, and has even won an award at it, she realizes that it is time to make some life changing decisions. On her drive home from a concert where she opened for a well known country singer, she gets lost in the mountains in Pennsylvania. After a blown tire causes her aimless drive to stop, she wanders up the lane to find a cabin.

Michael Hostetler is trying to figure out what path to take in life. Does he join the Amish church as his family is pushing for? Or does he continue his education and live as an Englisher? Michael takes a few days off to think and pray, staying in a rustic cabin in the mountains. A knock at the door changes his life forever.

Amelia and Michael find that there is more to life than living up to other people's expectations and that even when it is sometimes hard to follow your dream, the benefits can far outweigh the criticism from others.

I really enjoyed this book and was able to review it for Bethany House through Library Thing. I have given my honest review in return for a complimentary copy of this book.
