Inspired by a true story, A Christmas Gift for Rose is a heartwarming novella of sacrifice and deep love.

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?

Goyer is really good at connecting with her readers, and I thought this book was fantastic.  Following Rose’s feelings over her beau Jonathan and her emotions about who she thinks she is, makes you just want to wrap that character in a big hug.  When the story concludes (without giving away any spoilers) you are so happy with the turn of events, almost as if these circumstances happened to real people you know.  If I had the time, I could easily have spent an hour or two at a stretch, immersed in this story.

If you have a reader on your list for Christmas that likes Christian fiction, this new book will be received with pleasure, especially considering the seasonal nature of it and certainly by those that enjoy books with Amish lifestyle settings.

You can read a sample file of the book here.
