A Christmas Gift For Rose - Tricia Goyer




4 Stars!

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -

She is currently writing three more Amish stories and One Year of Amish Peace. Tricia's Amish novels have made the ECPA and USA Today bestsellers list. Tricia and her husband, John, live in Little Rock, Arkansas. They have four children and are currently in the process of adopting two more.



MY REVIEW -
A beautiful Amish Christmas story set in the WWII era written by Tricia Goyer - what more incentive do you need? This was a real sweet story, quick and easy to read and has no trouble capturing and keeping your attention.

The character development was excellent. I took an instant liking to Rose, what a sweetheart! You get totally wrapped up in her and her family's lives.

What really gave this story the twist was the touch historical fiction! Amish/Romance/Historical Fiction - all wrapped up in one! If you are a lover of Amish fiction you won't want to  miss this sweet love story.

Thank you Litfuse for sending me this beautiful Hardcover to read and review!
I will be giving away this beautiful copy - but not till Dec. so keep watch during my Christmas reading!
