The Christmas Singing by Cindy Woodsmall

Book Blurb After Gideon coldly broke her heart, can the warmth of the season revive Mattie’s hopes? Mattie thought her childhood sweetheart adored her until he abruptly ended their engagement on Christmas Eve. Three years later, will learning the truth behind his rejection restore her Christmas joy – or open the door to even deeper heartbreak? Spend Christmas with the Amish in this story of love, romance, heartache, and restoration.

My Thoughts on The Christmas Singing Mattie decides to go live with her brother after a heartbreaking broken relationship with her boyfriend Gideon. What she didn’t know was that because of a secret Gideon didn’t want her to find out, he intentionally makes Mattie believe he is interested in someone else in order for their romance to end. Then Mattie is forced to return to her home because of an accident and finds out about the secret Gideon kept from her, and you can imagine the confusing emotions buzzing through her head now.

The Singing Christmas Tree is another wonderful Amish fiction from Cindy Woodsmall. As with Cindy’s other books, she goes a little toward the edge telling this story giving readers and insight of how the Amish have some of the same difficulties to deal with in life as we all do. They deal with pain and sickness, heartaches and broken hearts, and sometimes not being truthful to each other as in this story. But they also find love and forgiveness and restoration through their relationship with God.

I appreciate this heartwarming romance in The Christmas Singing that Cindy has created for us to enjoy for this Christmas season. The wonderful characters she creates are fun to meet and get to know as we read the story. I would encourage you to grab a copy of this book to read and enjoy. You will not be disappointed in this one!
