Litfuse Tour: A Christmas Gift for Rose by Tricia Goyer #grow4christ

on October 2, 2013

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.

My Opinion:

A little bit of Christmas in September. even though I’m posting this in October, what a wonderful bit of the season early on.  I was immediately pulled into the story of Rose as she struggles to loosen the bonds of the the Amish world and welcome her beau back into her life.   Rose has grown up with the understanding that anything outside of the Amish faith is forbidden and maybe even evil and so when confronted with one of their own who serves during WWII and him coming back to re-join the Amish flock, the whole community, especially Rose is tormented with how to handle such a thing.

Doing what she does best and combining them both, Amish fiction and World War fiction, Tricia has managed to twist them together to make for one unforgettable book that will appeal to anyone who is a WW buff, Amish fan or just a Christian fiction reader.  I read the book in about a day in a half and it was such a great book and fast paced that I had to keep going, which is another of Tricia’s great abilities, is to keep her reader enthralled and interested even past the last page – wanting more.  I really hope we get to see more of Rose’s life even if she’s just a secondary character in another series from Tricia, it’d be great to ‘visit’ with her again.
