Book Review: The Christmas Singing by Cindy Woodsmall

Three years ago, Mattie Eash quickly left her hometown in Pennsylvania to go live with her brother in Ohio and start a new life.  Her best friend and boyfriend, Gideon Beiler, had broken her heart when he broke their engagement on Christmas Eve.  She has since rebuilt her life, and has a thriving cake shop, Mattie Cakes, as well as a steady boyfriend.  But her heart remains with Gideon.  When Mattie suddenly has to return to Pennsylvania during the Christmas season, she and Gideon cross paths.  There is so much hurt in her heart, she doesn't know if she can ever forgive him. 

Cindy Woodsmall is one of my favorite Amish  authors, and she has written another wonderful love story in The Christmas Singing.  It is not only a love story, it is a story about faith, forgiveness, and trusting God for your future.  There are some yummy-sounding recipes in the back of the book as well, based on cakes that Mattie makes in the story!  This hardback edition would make a lovely gift, and is a quick read.
