Here's another peek at Tricia Goyer's Christmas novella, which I featured last month.

A Christmas Gift for Rose
Tricia Goyer
ISBN: 978-0310336785
September 2013/192 pages/Hardcover/$15.99

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?

Don’t miss award-winning author Tricia Goyer’s first Christmas novella.


USA Today best-selling author Tricia Goyer is the author of over 35 books, including the three-book Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series and Lead Your Family Like Jesus, (co-written with Ken Blanchard). She has written over 500 articles for national publications and blogs for high traffic sites like TheBetterMom.com and MomLifeToday.com. She is the host of Living Inspired, a weekly radio show. Tricia and family live in Little Rock, Arkansas. They have six children. You can find out more about Tricia at www.TriciaGoyer.com.


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.
