Book Info
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 really enjoyed reading Tricia Goyer's Christmas novella, "A Christmas Gift for Rose!" Rose was planning to be married by now, but her fiancée joined the military, which is not the Amish way. However, Rose becomes even more conflicted and unsure of what to feel and her place in her family and the Amish community when Rose is told that her family is not her birth family, she was really born to English parents. As Rose tries to sort through her feelings, Jonathan is doing everything he can to help Rose, the woman he still loves, to find her place in the world and discover who she is. This book is filled with struggles, relationships between family members, and the magic of Christmas. Rose is given a wonderful gift at Christmas and she learns that families are not always just the members whom share blood. This is a book that can be related to and the characters empathized with no matter the reader's background.
