Rose thought she would marry Jonathan, but he went to fight in WWII. And when Rose's sister finds a fancy apron with Rose's name on it, the discovery shakes everything that Rose thought she knew about herself and where she came from.
This is a heartwarming novel just in time for Christmas! The character were excellent and the plot developed quickly, drawing me right into the story.
One of my favorite parts of the story was when Rose read Heidi to her students, and it touched her, and showed how a good book can bring light to a difficult time.
Jonathon was so supportive of Rose and I loved his steadiness and how he wouldn't give up on Rose and did the best he could to help her. Rose's parent's were also very supportive of her, and they only wanted to best for her.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming novel of Rose's discovery of how much she is truly loved by God, her parents, and Jonathon.

About the book: Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War
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.
