I am a huge fan of anything Christmas and I love Amish stories as well, so I was so excited to be able to read Cindy Woodsmall's new book, "The Christmas Singing." This is a quick read and a beautiful hardcover edition! I love the scene on the front of the book - so perfect for this time of year!
Mattie had her heart broken years earlier on Christmas Eve and now she must face this rejection and decide how to handle this hurt. Gideon wanted to protect Mattie, but ended up hurting her anyways and now he knows that the truth is the best and only way to handle things. During the three years since their broken engagement Mattie has moved on physically to a new town and also emotionally as she has a new beau. Circumstances bring Mattie back home and back in contact with Gideon, has Mattie really moved on to far or is the love still there between the two?
This is a well-written story that will enjoyed every year at Christmas time! Mattie and Gideon are both such lovable characters and I found myself rooting for them from the very beginning of the story. This is a great story as well for each of us on forgiveness, trust and telling the truth. A must read for Amish fiction fans!
