Book Review–A Christmas Gift for Rose

A-Christmas-Gift-for-RoseA Christmas Gift for Rose

by Tricia Goyer

Description: 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 Thoughts: War time is confusing and hard for anyone. And it’s the same for the Amish. The who want to live by the faith choose to go to prison rather than fight but not Jonathan Fisher. Jonathan feels that God is calling him to serve so he signs up and goes off to war as a medic. Back home his betroved Rose, faces the Amish community and their opinions on Jonathan’s choice. After his return Rose has to look into herself and choose to forgive him all while her world is rocked with a secret that has finally been revealed. Does she even know who she is anymore? I loved the conflicting emotions Rose faces as she discovers that being born Amish isn't as important as ‘being’ Amish and her struggle to find her family without turning from the family that has raised her.
