I have always liked roses well enough, but this book puts them up front and center in a wonderful light! God's love always reaches us if we listen. This long forgotten rose, tucked away in a rose house, is about to change lives.
Bess is about to marry Amos and she can't get Billy out of her mind. Working in the rose house, Bess finds a rose she can't identify. She has to have this strange rose identified, and Billy has to come and do it. He didn't want to go back to the Amish life he left, but one rose and Bess, with God's promoting are going to change things.
Love, hope, pain, and romance are all in this fast sweet read. Find a fire, or a warm blanket and your favorite area with a cup of hot coffee, apple cider, hot chocolate or hot tea and settle in for a lovely story that will leave you smiling. Carol :)
My copy of this book came from Revell in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.
Join bestselling, award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher for an Amish Christmas to remember.
Billy Lapp is far away from his Amish roots working as a rose rustler for Penn State and wants nothing to do with Stoney Ridge. And that suits Bess Riehl just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word of explanation? It's time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes when Billy's cousin Amos proposed--for the third time--and beginning to plan for her Christmas wedding.
When a "lost" rose is discovered in a forgotten corner of the greenhouse at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. His plan is to get in, identify the rose, and get out. The only catch is that he's having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose --and he can't get Bess Riehl out of his mind.
As the history of the lost rose is pieced together, it reminds Bess and Billy--and Amos too--that Christmas truly is the season of miracles.
