In "The Sound Of Sleigh Bells", Cindy Woodsmall carefully carves a story that warms the heart. Beth Hertzler is a young Amish woman, hiding a hurt that she feels is beyond anyone's understanding. When she encounters Jonah, a gifted wood carver, something in his eyes touches her soul.
The traditions of the Amish are woven throughout the plot, allowing the intimacy of old-fashioned letter writing to play a major role. I found myself racing through the pages, eager to read Beth's words, hoping that she would share the truth of her pain. And in Jonah, the author has given us a character worthy of affection. As Beth wrestles with her past and ponders her future, readers will hope for a happy ending.
