Romance and The Christmas Singing

About the Book:  Three years ago, at Christmastime, main character, Mattie’s life was everything she could hope for. That was, until her childhood sweetheart, Gideon, betrayed her.  Heartbroken, Mattie retreated to her brother’s home in Ohio and poured her life into the dream of running her own cake shop. There, she found someone who was the total opposite of her once beloved, Gideon.  Sol was someone safe.  But when a  devastating fire forces her back home she finds herself right in the path of Gideon Beiler. Will learning the truth behind his rejection restore her Christmas joy—or open the door to even deeper heartbreak?  This holiday season, Mattie’s best gift might just be the harmony of unexpected truth and reconciliation.  Spend Christmas with the Amish in this story of love, romance, heartache, and restoration in The Christmas Singing

About the Author:  Cindy Woodsmall is a New York Times best-selling author whose connection with the Amish community has been featured on ABC Nightline and on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. She is also a veteran homeschool mom who no longer holds that position. As her children progressed in age, her desire to write grew stronger. After working through reservations whether this desire was something she should pursue, she began her writing journey. Her husband was her staunchest supporter as she aimed for what seemed impossible. To find out more about Cindy Woodsmall visit her website. /
My Thoughts:  I did without sleep last night and I read this book in one sitting. I did not put it down until I found out the ending. Cindy Woodsmall became a favorite of mine when I read her series, Sisters of the Quilt. She is well-schooled in the traditions of the Old World Amish and is a master weaver of a story.  I have to admit that the title,  The Christmas Singing, was the first thing that drew my attention,  since I sing and it had to do with Christmas.  This book is full of good family values and faith in God which makes this a wonderful book for Christian readers.  I would give it five stars.  Great read.
