A Christmas Gift for Rose by Tricia Goyer

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 as she prepares to marry, she's thrown into confusion when she learns the truth of her birth. She was born Englisch and abandoned when the family moved on in search of work.

Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind---Englischers? And was her intended's gift of discovering her birth family given out of love or fear?

My Review:

I really enjoyed this sweet and quick read. This story is about the love of our fellow human beings and following God's Will. The true heart of this family is shown time and again.
Rose Yoder is a lovely young Amish woman, who was engaged to a young man who enlisted in WWII. The Bishop and the Community repeatedly told Rose to forget him.
There are many secrets here, hidden memories, and so much love. When Johnathan comes home, Rose is so torn. Then her own life is shattered, or so she thinks. We travel with this family who have truly given their lives to Christ, and done what he asks.
I wanted more, but the story itself is so good. Be ready for so many surprises. Every time they turned around something new was happening. Don't miss this terrific book by Tricia Goyer, you sure won't be disappointed, I wasn't!

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours and Tricia Goyer's Launch Team, and was not required to give a positive review.
