Great Novella

The Christmas Singing, by Cindy Woodsmall, is an Amish stand alone novella but features the reappearance of characters from other novellas. And even though not a lot is written about Christmas itself, the story is still delightful and entertaining.
The Christmas Singing is about Mattie Eash’s new life three years after a devastating breakup with her childhood boyfriend, Gideon Beiler.
Mattie moved from her home in Pennsylvania to her brother’s home in Ohio, after catching Gideon in the arms of an Englisher. There she begins a very prosperous business and finds a new boyfriend, Sol Bender, someone who makes her feel very safe.
However, an unexpected and crushing event forces her to move back home to Pennsylvania – and closer to Gideon.
Mattie’s unresolved anger and frustration leaves her and Gideon both confused and unable to move forward in their lives.
As time progresses, we see new, mature love begin to emerge and the past finally dealt with in a kind and forgiving manner.
I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to reading the prior novella, Sleigh Bells, and the subsequent one, Cherry Blossoms.
