They both love music. Will God deny what brings them such joy?
Musical prodigy Levi Shetler hasn’t touched a piano since he secretly played one years ago. His strict Amish community forbids instruments or the singing of any music not in their approved songbook. Levi asks God often why music tempts him when playing an instrument isn’t allowed in his world.
One person knows Levi’s talents: Mary Hershberger, the girl who promised years ago to keep his secret. Mary comes from a more liberal district than Levi, but she’s facing family troubles of her own. The mutual care for an aging Englischer, Adeline, reunites Mary and Levi as young adults. They realize that, despite their differences, they have a shared love of music—and a shared confusion about whether their talents are God-given gifts or temptations luring them into the Englisch world.
The couple realizes they must compromise or part ways, but a tragic accident shakes their decision. Both Mary and Levi will need to reconcile what they love with what their hearts say is right—because even as their passion for music brings them together, it could be what tears them apart.
This read was one after my own heart. Love has no boundaries and there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and couldn’t put it down. It’s everything I have grown to expect from Wiseman over the years and then some. Wiseman has a way of drawing her readers in and keeping them intrigued. The story offered a steady pace and had me flipping through the pages pretty fast. This is book 1 in the An Amish Journey Series and I can’t wait to read book 2!
