I was excited and anxiously waiting to read Cindy Woodsmall lastest Amish romance, but I have been sorely disappointed. The story line is weak and holds no excitement, or anything that would make me want to continue. The narration is boring and dull. Unfortunately I wasted my credit on this book, and can't even finish it. Cindy Woodsmall is an excellent author, but this is not one of her best.
Definitely I would. I actually was brought to tears during a part in which they discussed people who are chronically ill.
The Christmas sleigh. Another Cindy Woodsmall book.
The mom tearfully admitted to her daughter that if she could have spared telling her and her dad that she was sick, she would have. She was agreeing with her daughters ex boyfriend who had been fighting cancer and was trying to keep it a secret as not to ruin her life, trying to spare her his grief and allow her tohave a normal life even if it meant without him.
I wouldn't. It was perfect and got do well. Perhaps I would have called it The Sacrifice if I really had to.
The narrator Cassandra Campbell is one of the best there is. She makes a great story even better. She brings the characters to life and one really becomes lost in the plot.
I would recommend this to a friend that would enjoy the book for a good story. It isn't steamy or action packed but it is worth reading.
The main female character, Maddy Lane. She struggles with her feelings in the story and has a nice way of including the reader in her thoughts.
I wouldn't change anything.
Definetly worth the time and in the holiday season it was heart warming.
