Review - A Christmas Gift for Rose by Tricia Gover

*This is a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% mine.

You'll know it is getting closer to the holiday season when you start to see books with Christmas is in the titles. Author Tricia Goyer released her newest novella A Christmas Gift for Rose last month, and, as you can probably guess, it is set around Christmastime.

Inspired by a true story, the main Amish character is named Rose Yoeder, who lives in Berlin, Ohio in 1945. She was engaged to Jonathan, but to respect her family’s wishes, she had to breakup with him because he had enlisted in the military to serve his country in WWII, working side-by-side with the Englisch, something that is frown upon in the Amish community.

The holiday season should be a time of happiness, but not for Rose, as she uncovers a startling secret - she was born Englisch!

Honestly, I don't like reading holiday themed books until after Thanksgiving, but I'm a fan of the author's books, so I went ahead and read it anyway. The book is a super-fast read, just under 200 pages, with wonderful characters and an interesting plot! I thought it was odd that the book was set during WWII, as the previous book I had read was a WWII Amish romance. Overall, I enjoyed reading A Christmas Gift for Rose and I recommend it to other readers. Plus, the book would make a good Christmas present for someone.
