I have never read an Amish romance before and now I am just enchanted by the lovely personalities, hearts, and traditions of the Amish. I felt for Rose Kurtz as she was treated coldly by her mother and then sent away to help out a family in need. Once she arrived at the Dienner house, she faced an uncertain future. The mother of the children had passed away giving birth and she was asked to step into FLorence’s place to tend to the children.
The story continued as the family went along in their life and picked up a few years later. Rose was still trying to find her place in the heart of the family and was giving her all to being a good mother to the children.
For Grace, Rose was the only mother she had ever known. When strangers appear in the small community and family members begin to interfere in Rose and Joel’s life, it reopens a wound that Rose had thought she was passed.
This book had such a lovely spirit. It drew you in with the gentleness and kindness of the characters. I am so glad I read this book. While there were concerns and stresses for the family the book brought the spirit of Christmas to me a little early in the season. I was glad to have been provided this book for review by the publishers through Blogging for Books. This book has brought me joy and a sweet feeling for the holidays. Joel and Rose were well-written characters that showed their heart to the reader. Even if they struggled to show their heart to each other.
Although this might be the first book by Cindy Woodsmall. As I went to her website I realized she is no stranger to Amish romances. She is a best-selling author with a slew of books under her belt. The website like the books have recipes and other information available. I liked the feel of this book so much, I am going to seek out more of her books to read.
