Product Description

Bess Riehl is preparing Rose Hill Farm for her Christmas wedding, but her groom isn't who she thought it would be. 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, his family, or Bess. And that suits Bess just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word, without any explanation? It's time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes to Amos Lapp, Billy's cousin and best friend. But as Bess and Amos's wedding day draws near, her emotions tangle into a tight knot. She loves Amos. Yet she can't forget Billy.

Publisher's Description

Bess Riehl is preparing Rose Hill Farm for her Christmas wedding, but her groom isn't who she thought it would be. 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, his family, or Bess. And that suits Bess just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word, without any explanation? It's time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes to Amos Lapp, Billy's cousin and best friend. But as Bess and Amos's wedding day draws near, her emotions tangle into a tight knot. She loves Amos. Yet she can't forget Billy.

When a "lost" rose is discovered at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. Get in, identify the rose, and get out. That's his plan. The only catch is that he's having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose, and he can't get those tropical blue eyes of 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.

Join bestselling, award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher for an Amish Christmas to remember. Filled with heart-twisting moments amid the sweet anticipation of love, this story will charm readers into the holiday spirit.

    CHRISTMAS AT ROSEHILL FARM by Suzanne Woods Fisher



    This tale is well-written.

    Hidden, unrecognized, unexpected, and forgotten treasures are rediscovered and lend a holy glow to this Christmas tale, that reminds me of a Dickenss. An inspiring read about love, the embracing fragrance perfect for anytime. A gift to touch the heart-just when you think it cant, it happens; and miraculous is the word of awe that comes to mind.

    An incredible heavenly character is present.

    The angst of and the crossroads of honesty between loving deeply and loving More is culturally relevant. The angst is a catalyst for renewed commitment or continued self-deception and like a good volley in a game, angst is revisited until recognition of choices is acknowledged.

    With the help of a heavenly hero equipped with the gift of the grace of strength to acknowledge self-truth, needed reminders to regroup, revisit, renew, and re-emerge come in unexpected and thorny ways.

    Leave the thorns or de-thorn, or forget the rose, that is the question facing the hero and heroine.



    It has lovely faucets as the characters hear, consider and abandon and re-think the internal debate.

    The showier personalities have a shorter lasting pleasant fragrance, then the characters that do not demand that the world revolve around them.

    If love were a rose petal, and all the loving relationships in the tale were examined, wed have a garden of beautiful flowers, despite, thorniness and long periods of the absence of blooming -for some flowers.

    Gently, midway the best scenarios of like-minded/ same-passionate-interest couples are presented as a good option, but not the only option.

    The stronger the will of the character, the greater their struggle to face the honesty of their journey of discernment, which they all dont want This tale is well-written, the book will seem to glow between your hands at the end.

    Fans of Suzanne Woods Fisher's work are going to love this year's Christmas book. It is again set in Lancaster County and contains characters that we have come to know and love through some of her other series.

    The main character is Bess Riehl who we first met in The Search (Lancaster County Secrets, Book 3). We meet up with Bess as she is busy planning her wedding to Amos Lapp. He isn't her first love, that would be Billy, but Billy is nowhere to be found and Bess is just trying to get on with her life.

    When a mysterious variety of rose is found Bess and her family decide to try and find out its origins. They send for a rose expert and low and behold it winds up being the long lost Billy. Billy has secrets he's hiding and doesn't want to risk getting involved with Bess again. He wants to identify the rose and then leave. But of course God has other plans and sends the mysterious George to help guide Billy.

    I loved this quick little novella. It was not only a great story of redemption and restoration it was also a very interesting lesson on the science of roses. It gave me a whole new appreciation for those planted around my house. Come spring I am going to definitely be wondering about the origins of my particular plants.

    Another exciting little follow up to this book is that the story continues in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. It is such a fun little peek into the lives of those familiar characters. This would make the perfect stocking stuffer for the book lover on your Christmas list.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    SUMMARY:

    Preparing for her Amish Christmas wedding at Rose Hill Farm , Bess Riehl soon receives a surprise she wasnt expectingshe is engaged to Amos Lapp yet may still have feelings for Billy Lapp, Amos cousin who left the Amish community years earlier without any explanation. When a rare rose is discovered at Rose Hill Farm, Billy arrives to identify it with strong intentions to leave immediately; however, his heart may just have another purpose to pursue

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Being unfamiliar with many of the characters from the Rose Hill Farm Amish community, I was still able to follow the story quite easily. In fact, I plan on returning to Rose Hill Farm now to meet the other neighbors in the community. Well written with a few unexpected surprises yet true to the Amish storyline, I enjoyed Christmas at Rose Hill Farm, particularly at this time of year. I especially found the cover to be very appealing, reminiscent of the story found within.

    RATING:

    4.5 (out of 5) pennies

    *I received a complimentary copy of Christmas at Rose Hill Farm from Revell Publishing for my honest review*

    I really liked Bess and was happy that she ends up knowing her own mind. This is a nice Christmas story. It was fun to learn a little about roses in this book. This has a good bit of romance in the story. I received this from Revell Reads for a fair and honest opinion.
