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 she is overwhelmed by self-doubt when she learns the truth of her birth. 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? And was her intended’s gift of discovering her birth family given out of love or fear?

I love Christmas novellas and books by Tricia Goyer so when you combine the two, it's a win-win! Goyer's Amish stories always have a unique twist to them and this one is no exception. In spite of this being a novella, Goyer succeeds in crafting a story with several layers. Rose's black-and-white worldview is turned upside down when she discovers that she was born into an Englisch family, and her crises of identity and faith are well-portrayed, as are the angst and confusion she she experiences regarding the return of the man she always planned to marry and the role he played in World War II, which ran counter to everything she believes in. This is a heartwarming story to add to your Christmas collection.
