The Fiddler (#01 in Home To Hickory Hollow Series)

Beverly Lewis
Also Available In
New from #1 Bestselling Author Beverly Lewis

Amelia "Amy" DeVries, a 24-year-old violinist, is disillusioned with life and love after the collapse of her long-running romance. Weary of endless rehearsals and performances, Amy sets out on a road trip through the Pennsylvania mountains. She leaves her cell phone behind so life's demands can't intrude on her solitude. She doesn't know, nor care, where she will end up.

When her car breaks down deep in the mountains, Amy realizes the flaw in her "no cell phone" plan. She abandons her car and walks the winding roads, searching for help. Following the smell of woodsmoke and the sound of music, she finds a rustic log cabin. There she meets a young Amishman--and through him a community--that will change her life forever.

Beverly Lewis

Beverly Lewis was born Beverly Marie Jones in 1949, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and grew up in the heart of 'Pennsylvania Dutch' country. She played and composed on the piano and wrote avidly from a very young age. Beverly's father was an Assemblies of God pastor, and she was raised in that denomination. However, she became fascinated with her ancestral links to the Old Order Mennonite community into which her maternal grandmother, Ada Buchwalter, had been born. Beverly's deep affinity for her Amish heritage has inspired much of her prodigious literary output - over eighty books for both children and adults.

Beverly graduated from Evangel University with a degree in Music Education, and became a schoolteacher. When her own three children were middle school age, Beverly began submitting stories to children's magazines. Her first book Mountain Bikes and Garbanzo Beans was published in 1993.

Beverly's first adult fiction, published in 1997, was the Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy, about the experiences of a young Amish woman Katie Lapp as she moves from the plain traditions of her upbringing into the modern world. Beverly has followed this award-winning bestseller with a stream of popular titles that have established her as one of our time's most beloved storytellers. Her titles include the Cul-De-Sac Kids, the Girls Only (GO!), and the Holly's Heart series for children, and the Amish based Rose, Seasons of Grace, Abram's Daughter, The Courtship of Nellie Fisher, and Annie's People series. She has received numerous awards including two Silver Angel Awards for her novels The Postcard and Annika's Secret Wish, and a Golden Book Award for The Shunning, the first volume of her Heritage of Lancaster County series.

Beverly is a member of the National League of American Pen Women as well as a Distinguished Alumnus of Evangel University. She says of her leisure:

"When I'm between writing deadlines, I enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains with my husband. Cooking from scratch, playing Mozart at the piano, and making family memory albums, as well as traveling to meet my devoted readers during book tours, are some of my very favorite things. I also adore reading biographies and memoirs, as well as classic literature."

She makes her home with her husband David in Colorado. In addition to their three adult children, they have three grandchildren.

Surprising
4 stars By Jacqui, Sep 03 2015
I am not a fan of Amish stories yet I really enjoyed this one. I love the blend of Amish and English. I loved how Amelia and Michael both learnt from each other's cultures. I found that I could understand the struggles they were both going through and I was encouraged by their faith. Beverley Lewis writes in such a way that I found myself feeling at peace as I roamed around Hickory Hollow with the characters. This was an enjoyable book to read.

A pleasant journey
4 stars By Lisa, Jul 28 2015
If you enjoy Beverly Lewis' work, then you will enjoy this.  It is a lovely old fashioned love story.  I found Michael's struggles particularly interesting - did he have to remain Amish to stay true to his faith?  I gleaned more about the Old Order Amish from other Lewis books, this novel provides much less detail about all of that.  It is a quick easy read.

Great :)
5 stars By Leah, Apr 01 2013
Anyone who loves music can relate to this novel, I play violin and that is what caused me to pick it up. This book weaves its way through the expectations others can put on us and the expectations we can put on ourselves, not lacking in advice from the Wise woman, Ella-mae. Once you pick it up you can't put it down, and you won't be sorry once you've read it. Another beautiful tale from Beverly Lewis. Come and find your place in Hickory Hollow.
