With the holiday season coming upon us I’d like to let you know of a wonderful book that I got to review that I’m sure someone would love to get as a gift and read for themselves.
“Christmas in Apple Ridge” by Cindy Woodsmall is such a great book! It actually has 3 books in it and I loved reading them all! I had one of the books from before and still reread it because it was a book that I just couldn’t put down. Even though I have a Kindle I still love to read the books because in the winter time there is no better feeling than to hold them while sitting on the couch with the warmth of a fireplace glowing in the background. The three books that was included in this book was “The Sound of Sleigh Bells”, “The Christmas Singing”, and “The Dawn of Christmas”.
“The Sound of Sleigh Bells”: Beth Hertzler who is unable to let go of a past tragedy, but when she discovers a large, intricately carved scene of Amish children playing in the snow, something deep inside Beth’s soul responds. Determined that her neice meet the gifted artist, her aunt tracks him down, but it’s not that simple. I loved this book because Beth seems like the person that I have once been or would be like. I love reading about the Amish and this book just painted a lovely picture of what it would have been like if I was there too!
“The Christmas Singing”: Mattie thought her childhood sweetheart adored her until he abruptly ended their engagement on Christmas Eve. Brokenhearted, Mattie moves away and pursues her longtime dream of becoming a cake decorator, and even finds a new beau. But when Mattie is forced to return home three years later, will learning the truth behind Gideon’s rejection restore her Christmas joy. This book is a wonderful book and with each time I read it I fall more and more in love with it!
“The Dawn of Christmas”: Sadie enjoys her freedom away from home and her mission trips to Peru, but after four years, her Old Order Amish family insists it’s time to come home and settle down. Levi, a bachelor who distrusts women after a family heartbreak, also has no desire for romance. To keep their families from meddling in their lives, Sadie and Levi devise a plan. I really enjoyed this book because even though they both didn’t trust each other and had heartbreaks often it’s something that everyone will enjoy reading. I thouroughly enjoyed this book and I’m sure you all will too!!!
You can get this book at any Christian retailer, Amazon or any other book retailer.
