I received "The Christmas Singing" by Cindy Woodsmall for free from Blogging For Books. This is a novella about a girl Mattie and her bitter breakup. Three years prior, Gideon, her boyfriend, broke up with her when she walked in on him hugging another girl, in his house, alone. She moves 6 hours away to live near her brother, start her own cake making business, and to move on. She meets Sol and has been dating him the last 2 years. Sol is not the passionate love that one dreams of. He is safe, direct, not passionate, and gets along fine without Mattie. Which means he won't break her heart since he never really has it.
Mattie's cake shop catches fire and she has to move back temporarily with her parents. Back to Gideon. While there, Mattie and Gideon meet back up with passion. Of course it is the passion of hate, but still its a blaze.
I like this book fairly well. As you know, I'm not a big fan of Amish books, but this one is not bad. The people are real. There biggest fear isn't where and when they will find their next shoo-fly pie. They are normal everyday people. I like that in my Amish.
