A Warm Amish Romance -- The Christmas Singing
Cindy Woodsmall has written another warm Christmas story in The Christmas Singing.
Mattie is doing well with her business in Ohio -- Mattie Cakes -- and is looking forward to a good life with Sol. When tragedy strikes, though, she finds herself back in Pennsylvania and having to spend time with Gideon, her childhood sweetheart who broke her heart three years earlier by ending their engagement. Little does Mattie know that Gideon has never let go of his love for her but has lived with a series of lies as he tried to protect her. What will happen if the truth ever comes out?
In typical Cindy Woodsmall fashion, this is a sweet story of Amish romance and restoration of broken hearts. If you've read The Sound of Sleigh Bells, you'll find yourself revisiting some old friends and making new ones. I recommend this novella for a relaxing, Sunday-afternoon read.
And the recipes from Sherry Gore at the end of the book are a nice bonus!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
