Short Book Description:

Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania–the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis’ celebrated Amish novels began–with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.

A wrong turn in a rainstorm leads Englisher Amelia Devries to Michael Hostetler–and the young Amishman’s charming Old Order community of Hickory Hollow. Despite their very different backgrounds, Amelia and Michael both feel hemmed in by the expectations of others and struggle with how to find room for their own hopes. And what first seems to be a chance encounter might just change their lives forever.

My Thoughts

I loved the book from the beginning to the end. The gentle love story of Amelia and Michael draws a reader in.

Amelia, a professional violinist, gets lost in a rainstorm on the way home to Columbus from Pennsylvania. The road she takes leads her to a cabin where a young Amish-man is staying after leaving home. The two connect from the beginning, trusting each other completely.

Amelia decides to stay in the area for the weekend, finding a new friend in Joanna. Amelia and Joanna exchange addresses and keep in contact. Michael secretly asks Joanna for Amelia’s address and contacts her. They write to each other for a while but, they lose contact after a time and move one.

The author casually mentions Katie Lapp (from The Heritage of Lancaster County Series). I can hardly wait for the next book to come out.
