This week I'm sharing...

Here's the synopsis:
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.

Experience the holidays with the Plain folk and discover the power of second chances in this touching story from the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Bridge of Peace.

Gideon Beiler has loved Mattie Eash since they were children. But when faced with unexpected circumstances, he makes up an excuse to end their engagement. He doesn’t want to lie to her, but he believes that telling Mattie the truth will be more hurtful.  

Brokenhearted, Mattie moves from Apple Ridge, Pennsylvania to Ohio, where she pursues her longtime dream of becoming a cake decorator. She finds a new beau—a man offering the secure relationship Gideon has denied her.  

When Mattie is forced to return to Apple Ridge, she and Gideon must confront the suffering created by his dishonesty – and address the powerful emotions that continue to bind the two childhood friends

Here are my thoughts:
I've become a huge Cindy Woodsmall fan.  I just love Amish fiction and while I did find the story slightly predictable, it was no less enjoyable...and what a perfect read right before Christmas!

What are you currently reading?

Cindy Woodsmall is my favorite Amish author!! I find a lot of the "Amish" fiction high predictable and cheesy but her books aren't for me!

I've been wanting to try out an Amish fiction book for a while now, but still haven't done it. This one does look really cute though.
