THE CHRISTMAS SINGING
A Christmas story filled with romance, hope and the joy of living a simple life. Woodsmall is a talented author. Her stories are a breath of fresh air, and she uses her knowledge of Amish Mennonite and Old Order Amish to bring new life to an overused storyline.
Mattie Eash has always liked the Christmas season — until three years ago, when her childhood sweetheart ended their engagement without an explanation. She has started over with her own cake shop and found someone new to love, someone totally different from Gideon. When unforeseen circumstances force her back to Apple Ridge, she will need to draw on every ounce of courage she can find to handle the hurtful memories. But does she want a second chance with the past or a new start with her present? (WATERBROOK, Oct., 208 pp., $14.99)
