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?
Inspired by a true story, A Christmas Gift for Rose is a heartwarming novella of sacrifice and deep love.
