The Fiddler~ Amish Book Review

Oh ~ did I ever enjoy this book. This book is the first book to the Home To Hickory Hollow series. Beverly outdid herself on this book. And I should know because I have read all of her books and series. 

Amelia Devries is a talented  musician who has spent her whole life performing as a classical fiddler. She feels like life is passing her by and she is missing out on a "real life."   Not wanting to hurt her father who taught her all he knew she keeps performing.

She secretly picks up a new hobby as a country fiddler with a different stage name. How long before she will be found out? 

A happen stance meeting with an Amish man named Michael Hosteler changes her whole perspective on a simple life.  Only she is English and he is Amish~ their love can not be allowed to blossom for it could never be~ or could it?

I loved this book and I give it 5 stars.  This is my favorite summer read of 2012.

This book was provided to me by Bethany Publishers in exchange for my honest review. 

Travelers Rest~ Book Review

Travelers Rest

Jane Morrow has found true love. Seth~ has promised that they would marry when he returns home from Iraq. Only he has been wounded in the war and returns home a different man. He refuses to let Jane commit to a lifetime of caring for him.

Jane ~ who does not have a strong faith in God learns through the bitter taste of war and a Veteran's Hospital that God is in control and has a plan. She discovers that when she prays ~ God hears her.

This book has many twist and turns and is not a happy ever after book but ends in a way that makes one stop and think and realize that God can bring peace in the most difficult of circumstances. Jane learns as we all must that we can trust God and sometimes in sorrow is where we grow the most.

This book was provided to me by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. I give this book 3 stars.
