The Christmas Singing

Another offering by Cindy Woodsmall proves to be an excellent choice if you enjoy Amish fiction. This book is a continuation of "The Sound of Sleigh Bells." It is the story of Mattie and Gideon, who broke up three years ago.

Mattie succeeds in business and finds a new beau, but her heart always remembers Gideon. As we learn about him, we discover that he broke up with Mattie to spare her the anguish of knowing he had been diagnosed with leukemia.

Now in remission, he seriously considers confessing to Mattie the reason for their breakup. Then, a fire takes Matties bakery shop down to the ground and she returns home to live with her mother while waiting for the the rebuiding of her shop. While at home, she comes across Gideon at every turn. But now she has to also consider the feelings of Sol, her new beau.

When Mattie discovers Gideon's reasoning for his deception, she must search her heart to see who she truly loves--Gideon or Sol.

This book is a very short read, but a pleasant one. The author's character development is, as usual, very good.

This book was provided to me at no charge in return by Waterbook Multnomah for my honest review.
