Beth Hertzler works alongside her beloved Aunt Lizzy in their dry goods store, and serving as contact of sorts between Amish craftsmen and Englischers who want to sell the Plain people’s wares. But remorse and loneliness still echo in her heart everyday as she still wears the dark garb, indicating mourning of her fiancé. When she discovers a large, intricately carved scene of Amish children playing in the snow, something deep inside Beth’s soul responds and she wants to help the unknown artist find homes for his work–including Lizzy’s dry goods store. But she doesn’t know if her bishop will approve of the gorgeous carving or deem it idolatry. 

Lizzy sees the changes in her niece when Beth shows her the woodworking, and after Lizzy hunts down Jonah, the artist, she is all the more determined that Beth meets this man with the hands that create healing art. But it’s not that simple–will Lizzy’s elaborate plan to reintroduce her niece to love work? Will Jonah be able to offer Beth the sleigh ride she’s always dreamed of and a second chance at real love–or just more heartbreak?

    " I enjoyed a look into a different culture, the Amish. It was also a wonderful Christmas based love story and story of self realization and forgiveness. I will look for other books by Cindy Woodsmall. "

    " I liked this book. I have never read anything by this author and know little about the Amish way of life. The story is about Beth who's in mourning after the death of her fiance and is harboring a secret related to his death. Beth has kept everyone at a distance until she discovers a piece of artwork created by an Amish craftsman that touches her deeply. Beth believes the craftsman is an old bachelor. The craftsman thinks Beth is her aunt who encourages him to write. They fall in love through their coorespondance, but the trickery is soon discovered. The rest of the book elaborates on the confessions and forgiveness of everyone involved. If you need a feel good story fo the holiday season this may be it. "

    " This was a really sweet book. It lacked a little in the end but over all I liked it. It was a fairly easy read too. I finished it in a week, which is hard for me to do with any book! ;) I will say this I am hungry for more Amish books. I lived in Amish country as a girl and this sparked my interest in them. I am on the hunt for the next good book to read about Amish. "
