A Christmas Gift for Rose

About the book: Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War II---only to discover she's an Englischer herself. Born in the midst of the hardships of The Great Depression, Rose grew up in Berlin, Ohio, in the arms of a loving Amish family. But she is overwhelmed by self-doubt when she learns that she was born Englisch and abandoned when her family moved West in search of work. Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind---Englischers? When the man she loves leaves her behind, Rose is certain he left for good. Yet Rose discovers sometimes our greatest gifts are the ones we fear.  Purchase a copy:

My Thoughts About the Book:  As a big fan of Tricia Goyer I was delighted to get to read and review this book.  The story was everything I would have expected from Goyer and more.  It was a poignant story of an Amish woman and her search for God, her identity, and love. A Christmas Gift for Rose is an amazing story of love, faith and family just in time for the Christmas season. This book will definitely pull at your heartstrings. I know it did mine.  A short and quick read, this is the book you will want to share with all your friends and family.  Warning:  Be sure to have a box of Kleenex near because you will need them before the story is over.
