A Christmas Gift for Rose | Tricia Goyer


Today I am reviewing A Christmas Gift for Rose by Tricia Goyer.

Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:

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.


A Christmas Gift for Rose is a wonderful story. There is conflict and resolution. The characters and the story are very believable…

I found myself too often looking up occasionally and being surprised that I wasn’t “in the midst of the story”.

This Christmas story is truly a wonderful, inspiring story.

Tricia led me on lots of twists and turns that I did not see coming. That’s something I’ve come to appreciate; too often a story is predictable — this one is not!
