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.

I really liked the storyline of this book. An Amish girl who finds out that she is "adopted". I wish the story would have been a little longer. I felt it was kind of rushed because it is a novella. If you are looking for a quick Christmas read, then this is the book for you, because it is a very quick read. Rose had planned to marry Jonathan, but he enlisted in the Army as a Medic to serve during WWII. Rose felt her turned his back on the Amish, because they don't believe in war. Then Rose finds out a secret about herself. Can Rose and Jonathan overcome their differences.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
