My Thoughts On The Book: I have loved every book I have read by Cindy Woodsmall and the The Dawn of Christmas is no exception. It is such a wonderfully written story about
second chances and learning to trust again. Woodsmall is a master wordsmith and in this story she develops her characters so well that I felt as if I knew Levi and Sadie and their families.
I found myself grieving for Levi and Sadie as Daniel stepped in and tore them apart. This book is a must read if you are a fan of Woodsmall and/or Amish Fiction.
