Summary

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.

Doesn't disappoint!

Those who enjoy Beverly Lewis's books will be happy with this one. It's a great story about Amish and non-Amish and how they relate and clash. I recommend it highly.

The Fiddler

Overall the story was fairly good. However, predictable. Parts of the story were very touching. Somewhat disappointed in the narration. I do enjoy Christina Moore. However, I never understand when you have two narrators - a male and female - why the male can't do the male parts and vice-a-versa. Other than that it was a nice listen.

Loved the story!!

Would you listen to The Fiddler again? Why?

I would because it was so enjoyable and I liked the insights of Amish culture and seeing the struggles of Michael's decision on whether to join the church and the unknowing suspense of how the book might end.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fiddler?

The talk under the tree and how he admired her fiddling.

What does Christina Moore and Andy Paris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved hearing the deeper voice for the male voices but I had hoped for a bit of variety because sometimes if I missed who was talking I wasn't sure which man was talking a d would get confused but I really enjoyed all of their expressional reading

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

At the end I had an overly joyous feeling when she realized it was Michael only dressed as an englischer

Any additional comments?

Loved hearing about the Amish experience as it was a bit of a getaway and soul searching time and how they were able to help and advise

Very enjoyable & stress-free story. I like books that make you feel glad about life in general. This book is of that kind.

Not my cup of tea but it was ok

The story was ok, but the main character is just so weak and gets pushed by everyone, also I really didnt see the point of including the whole Amish thing I dont think the story needed it.
I think this is a series but I wont be reading the rest.

Beverly Lewis Does it Again

as always, Beverly Lewis has kept me wondering What Next. I enjoy reading and hearing about places I've been and raised.
