This is the first Amish book that I ve read as well as the first book I ve read by this author It s not really my style but I did enjoy it It was a nice change of pace coming from the types of stories I m used to reading All in all this book was very sweet It was short enough to be read in a day also part of the reason I did like it because I m used to reading books around the 400 page marker where this one had ust short of 200 I loved how she described the way the characters interacted with one another both physically and emotionally but I thought there could have been description in the scenerysightssounds but then the book would have been 400 pages so This was a nice story with a happy ending I usually enjoy stories involving pen friends andor Christmas That was true for this story I was glad that the main character finally let go of her past and started to move on It was nice that her aunt got her to have a happy ending too Every time I read an Amish fiction novel I am surely and pulled into it becoming one of my favorite genres I have yet to find a piece of work that I have not thoroughly enjoyed It is of A wonderful Amish theme love story The Sound of Sleigh Bells is a uick enjoyable read Very nice to read a romantic love story that doesn t need the usual sex scene that most romantic stories have I really am enjoying these Amish theme books too So interesting to get a look into the Amish culture customs and lifestyle. Ing and after Lizzy hunts down Jonah the artist she is all the 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 ust heartbre.

That day at Pete s antiue shop But really what are the odds of it happening since Jonah lived in a out of the way town tucked into the back roads of Ohio while Beth lived in Pennsylvania Beth an Amish businesses lady and Jonah a part time wood carver and full time worker at his family s lumber yardBeth notices a piece of Jonah s carving at Pete s shop and is strangely attracted to it She wants to help the artist by offering his carvings to her customers Jonah hasn t carved for a while because he hasn t felt inspired in that direction Other than the chance meeting at the antiue shop Jonah and Beth are total strangersI confess that years ago I read The Sound of Sleigh Bells I decided to pull it out of my book case and read it again I thought that I d forgotten the story but found once I started reading it that I hadn t I will say that I enjoyed it this time than when I first read it It s a story about two people who have been deeply hurt in their past Can they work their way through these hurts to find peace and true happiness in their lives If you haven t read this it would be a good Christmas book for you to consider reading I m glad I decided to read it again and truth be told I will likely read it again a few years down the road It s definitely a keeper Wonderful book by an absolutely wonderful author I love her books Just the title alone totally captured me and the book lived up to every promise made by the charming title.
