BOOK REVIEW: The Sound of Sleigh Bells
Haunted by the tragic memories of love and loss, Beth Hertzler can’t seem to move on with her life and bury the past.
When her Aunt Lizzy tries to help and ends up meddling in her personal life, a strange turn of events cause Beth to face emotions and feelings she has desperately tried to forget. Intrigued by an intricate wood carving that she discovers in an antique shop, Beth feels herself mysteriously drawn to the carving and eventually to the artist who created it.
Jonah Kinsinger stirs her soul and awakens hope she thought was gone forever, forcing her to choose between holding onto the past or embracing the future.
I enjoyed this heart warming holiday read and highly recommend it. I found it to be more “modernized” than the usual Amish fiction and appreciate the fresh approach that Cindy Woodsmall applied to the story.
