Beverly Lewis is the gold standard in Amish fiction. She started with The Shunning and continues to raise the bar for other books in this genre.
Amelia Devries is a world-class violinist who is so focused on her music that she has lost her way in life. When she loses her way, literally, in a bad rainstorm, she finds herself in an Amish village. There she realizes her need to reclaim the truth she once knew. She also falls in love both with a young man and with a simpler life. Amelia then has to decide what she really wants in life and how to go about doing just that.
I enjoyed reading this book and felt the calming effect of the Amish way. I am not a world renown musician, but I am a woman who, like Amelia, can forget what is truly important in life. This book is a gentle reminder for me and for all readers.
Bethany House has provided a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
