The Sound of Sleigh Bells. Can’t you hear them? I always think of Christmas even though I’ve never ridden in a sleigh.

As a young girl Beth Hertzler dreamed of riding in a sleigh. Now, as a young Amish woman she’s in mourning long after the death of her fiance. Living with the guilt of what happened, Beth shuns all social activities.

Beth’s well-meaning conniving Aunt Lizzy hatches a plan to get Beth to live again. And the plan involves a talented wood carver named Jonah.

I have always enjoyed Amish Fiction and have read many of Beverly Lewis’s novels.  So when presented with the opportunity to read an Amish Christmas tale, I didn’t hesitate to accept.

Cindy Woodsmall has written a sweet story about two people, each having experienced tragedies and how forgiving oneself can heal old wounds.
