Beverly Lewis takes a refreshing look at the community of the Amish as it interacts with the English world. In this first book of a new series, conflicts arise as the characters from both communities are trying to discover where God really intends them to be. The rules of the ordnung do not come from God but from the community. Is it wrong in God’s eyes not to follow them? And when a talented violinist finally realizes her dreams are different from her parents’ dreams for her, what path should she take? And why, if her musical talent is a God-given gift, do the Amish feel it is wrong to play? These are only some of the conflicts that arise in this beautifully written tale of love and heartache, of hope and belief. The well-developed characters and pastoral setting are only part of the charm of this book. The real interest lies in the blending of music into the storyline. Ms. Lewis does a superb job in capturing the feelings of the young concert master as well as nailing the musical aspects of the story. A wonderful read that will have you wishing for the next installment in this inspirational series.
