A Christmas Gift For Rose – Book Review

Are you looking for a sweet Amish story to get you in the holiday spirit? A Christmas Gift For Rose by Tricia Goyer is ready to fill the bill!

A Christmas Gift For Rose tells the heartwarming story of Rose – a young, Depression-era girl who was raised Amish. She is engaged to be married to a man named Jonathan. But, the story takes place during World War II and the Amish are pacifists. When Jonathan agrees to support the war effort by serving as a medic – even though his intent is to save lives, not to take them – his decision causes a rift in their relationship and in the Amish community. How could Rose marry a man who would support a cause their community condemned?

As if that wasn’t enough to grapple with, Rose also learns she has a secret past that causes her to question everything she has ever believed about herself, her family, and her community.

As Rose struggles with these issues, she learns what is truly important in life – and we are privy to a fascinating glimpse of the social issues of the day.

A Christmas Gift For Rose is an inspiring book that is based on a true story. It is essential reading for lovers of Amish fiction and for Tricia Goyer fans, and a wonderful story for everyone else!

  2. I never knew Amish fiction was even a genre… but it sounds interesting! I’ll have to check this out as the holidays get closer, to put me in the Christmas mood. Stopping by from the Saturday Sharefest, by the way. 🙂
