"It was a dark and stormy night...", so Charlie Brown's dog, Snoopy always begins his new stories. However, Snoopy never seems to get to the next sentence.
But Beverly Lewis in her new book The Fiddler does, and it is a very interesting story. A young world-class concert violinist is lost on that dark and stormy night, and with a flat tire to make it even more dangerous, she is desperate. Through the trees in the woods, she can see a faint light. It is a small cabin not too far away occupied by a young and very handsome man. Not only can he warm her up with a cup of coffee, but he can change her tire. Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful romance. Well...not exactly. Problem?
He is Amish and she is very English.
In The Fiddler, Beverly Lewis explores this difficult problem. It is an interesting story that keeps the reader turning the pages to see what happens next. When you turn the last page, you will have a difficult time waiting for the next book.
Life in an Amish community is realistically portrayed. Characters become someone you would like to know, or someone you are just as happy that you do not know them. Together they make The Fiddler great reading. Amelia is a famous concert violinist, living out her father's dream for her. Michael is having a difficult time knowing his place in the world. Is he Amish or not? Together with the help of the Lord and the Wise Woman, they search for the answers to this very important life changing question. Will they get together or not? Read The Fiddler and enjoy the answer.
