About the Book:
Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War II—only to discover she’s an Englischer herself. 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 that 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? When the man she loves leaves her behind, Rose is certain he left for good. Yet Rose discovers sometimes our greatest gifts are the ones we fear.

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.
Tricia Goyer crafts stories with characters that jump off the page and this one is no exception. While I didn't relate to Rose's grappling with her adoption and her identity, I definitely related to that feeling of not belonging. I sympathized with Rose and her struggle to figure out where her life path should take her. I also sympathized with the soldiers touched by war and dealing with PTSD. I enjoyed learning more about the Amish point of view and how they perceived war. My grandfather fought in WWII so this really appealed to me.
Rose & Jonathon's love story will tug at your heart strings. It's the perfect combination of love, faith and family. Just the kind of story you'll want to cozy up to with a cup of cocoa and a warm blanket in front of the Christmas tree.
