Mattie loves her new life in Ohio. She's trying her best to put Gideon behind her and start her life over. Gideon was Mattie's first true love....and heartbreak. She still questions what it was that caused Gideon to find interest in someone else...an Englisher, of all people. But Gideon holds a secret. He believes he's done Mattie a favor setting her free. But is this a decision he ends up regretting? After Mattie's bakery burns down and leaves Mattie injured, Gideon rushes to Mattie's side but his secret still surrounds the walls of his heart. Sol, Mattie's new love, is confused as to Gideon's return after breaking Mattie's heart. Mattie goes back home to Pennsylvania to visit Mamm and Daed for the holidays, while recovering from her injuries. Being closer to Gideon, brings about more heart wounds than she bargained for. Mattie needs to decide where she'll spend her favorite night of the year, Christmas Eve...her birthday...in order to enjoy The Christmas Singing.
This was a delightful Amish Christmas tale. Author, Cindy Woodsmall, weaves a touching story in this novel. A nice bonus at the end of the book are two delicious sounding Amish cake recipes....I can't wait to try them!
