Violin Stories for the Soul is a collection of three short stories: The Blessed Violin, Fiddle In The Fog, and The Maker On The Mountain.
Violin Stories for the Soul is a collection of three short stories: The Blessed Violin, Fiddle In The Fog, and The Maker On The Mountain. The Blessed Violin is the tale of a man obsessed with a bedtime story about a miraculous violin. Could the story actually be true? His quest to find out takes him deep into the Appalachian mountains where he contends with a bear, the elements and his own demons. Through their diaries, Fiddle In The Fog follows the lives of a young Georgia woman and a Union soldier as they collide in this story from the American Civil War. Young Adeline struggling with the loss of her mother and William with his growing weariness of war, are brought together in the most unexpected of ways. In The Maker On The Mountain, a troubled young violin maker is seemingly led into the arms of a great master from another continent and century. The circumstances and consequences of their meeting form the basis for this unusual telling of a story about redemption and grace.
