Book Review: A Christmas Gift for Rose by Tricia Goyer

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.

My Review:  I just finished reading this book. It made me get in the mood for Christmas at the front of the book with all the cooking going on. I liked this book. It was just a short simple story and I love to read them too. It wasn't dragged out and was kept simple. You could read it in a day or two if wanted. It's also one of the first Amish books where I seen a Amish go to the war. It dealt with the depression era and war. The effects that this all had on families. It was sweet story of a parents love for their child where they gave her a better life. Plus the lesson that no matter if you're alone or with somebody you are always with God! I enjoyed this sweet book!!
