Product Description

Christmas Eve has always been special to cake decorator Mattie Eash, who was born on the wondrous holiday. Yet the season lost its appeal three years ago, when her childhood sweetheart abruptly ended their engagement on Christmas. Mattie moved to Ohio, pursued her dreams of running a cake shop, and gave her heart to someone new. Someone who wouldn't break her heart.

But an unforeseen setback forces her home and into painful proximity to Gideon. Will learning the truth behind his rejection restore her Christmas joy-or open the door to even deeper heartbreak?

Publisher's Description

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.

After Gideon coldly broke her heart, can the warmth of the season revive Mattie’s faith in love?

    The Christmas Singing tells the sweet story of Mattie and Gideon.

    They grew up together in the Amish community of Apple Ridge, Pennsylvania. Just when most would be considering marriage, they suddenly broke things off after Mattie finds Gideon in the arms of an English woman.

    Mattie must begin again. She moves to Ohio, opens a cake shop and has a new boyfriend. Things seem to be going well when suddenly everything begins to fall apart. She is injured when Mattie's Cakes catches on fire. With her shop destroyed, she goes home to Apple Ridge to recover with family. Little does she know an old chapter of her life will be reopened when she encounters Gideon again.

    There is much more to the story behind their breakup. You will not discover the conclusion of Mattie and Gideon's story until to come to the final pages of this novella. It is an enjoyable journey.

    This book was a Christmas present. I really enjoyed it. I could not put it down. I hope to find a sequel to the book. I would love to read about the rest of her story ie. her wedding and family life married to Gideon.

    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.
