A Book Review - The Dawn of Christmas

Another Cindy Woodsmall success.  Waterbrooks Multnomah sent me a copy to review.  My opinions are my own.  The Dawn of Christmas is yet another view of life in Apple Ridge.  You will be reunited with old characters, and meet new and interesting characters in this new novel.  I like that Ms. Woodsmall brings back old characters.  I feel like I get to check up on them and see where they are in life. 
The new characters were interesting and not your typical Amish young people.  You don't typically hear of Amish taking mission trips, or choosing not to get married, but these are the young people we start with.  Ms. Woodsmall loves to take broken people, and grow them in her books, and this is no different.  You are reading about two very broken people, just trying to survive, and then their growth.  This wasn't my all time favorite book, but if you like this genre, you will enjoy it.  It was an easy read and a quick one.  I give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
