Hearts in Harmony By Beth Wiseman

Hearts in Harmony

By Beth Wiseman 

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.
The first novel in the new Amish Journeys series by bestselling author Beth Wiseman, Hearts in Harmony explores how far the heart will travel for the melody of love.
My Thoughts:
Hearts in Harmony is an amazing beginning to a new series from Beth Wiseman. She has a knack for writing about the Amish and weaving together a storyline that is unique, fun and even heart wrenching. The way she wrote this book is very unique to the genre and is something that I haven't read before, which made this book unique. 
Character development in this story is fantastic. They are all likeable and believable with a uncharacteristic storyline that made the characters even more interesting. You will like Levi and Mary. They will feel like good friends at the end of this book. 
Overall, this was a great Amish read! If you're looking for a good book, I highly recommending picking up Hearts in Harmony! You will not be disappointed.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review. All opinions are mine.
