The Sound of Sleigh Bells by Cindy Woodsmall is a moving novel of forgiving yourself placed within the Amish community. Beth Hertzler has devoted her life to working in her aunt Lizzy's shop as well as helping trade between the Amish and Englischers after the death of her fiance. The black mourning clothing she wears reflects the state of her heart. When she finds a carving by JonahKinsinger it touches her heart, awakening something long dead. Lizzy sees the connection and sets a plan in motion that could pull Beth out of her self-imposed exile once and for all or could push her farther away. I truly enjoyWoodsmall's Amish books. She doesn't surround every character with a halo and elevate the entire culture to the equivalent of sainthood like some other authors within the genre. Beth is a woman all of us can relate to, and Jonah's kindness would make any woman swoon. The romance between the two of them is poignantly rendered. It's a quick read full of hope and love.
