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.

    For me, Christmas at Rose Hill Farm was a fun surprise. Its a visit with characters, some minor, some more important, from some of Suzanne Woods Fishers other books. I enjoyed reading about Bess, Billy, and Maggie all grown up, being reminded of Berthas odd ways, and learning whats become of Lainey and her family all while being treated to a brand new Christmastime story.

    Two years after the love of her life vanished without a trace, Bess is preparing to marry Amos, a man who loves her and will provide her with a comfortable life. As shes thinking about her future, she discovers an unusual rose hidden under a workbench in her grandmothers greenhouse. The rose has one bud on it, preparing to bloom. Curious, Bess and her father call for a rose rustler to come identify the mysterious plant. It turns out, of course, that several more secrets will need to revealed in order for all people involved to find their happily-ever-after. The book is one honest disclosure after another until healing can come.

    You dont have to have read any of Fishers other books first in order to enjoy this one. (But if you haven't, you'll probably want to after reading this one.) I recommend it to all fans of sweet Christmas fiction reads and thank Revell for sending my copy in exchange for this review. Now Im hoping Fisher will let us visit this community again.

    When offered a book to review by this author, I must say that I never hesitate!! In fact I am excited to see what new adventure will arise! Her books tend to be a learning experience, as well as an enjoyable one. Suzanne Woods Fisher writes in her unique style of storytelling, while giving you information of things that I would never have known.

    The main character in this book is Bess Rieh, who is busily preparing Rose Hill Farm for her very own Christmas wedding. The surroundings and season will make a perfect spot for this special occasion, except there is one problem, a VERY big one- her groom is not who she thought it would be. Billy Lapp is a rose rustler for Penn State who has grown far away from the Amish lifestyle in which he was raised. He has no desire to have anything to do with Stony Ridge, his family or Bess. Bess is in total agreement with this. After all, who in their right mind would want to think about a man who left the community without a word or any explanation?? She is determined to move on with her life, thus agreed to marry Amos Lapp, who is Billy's cousin and just happens to be Billy's very best friend. Oh the tangled webs that life gets us into!!! The wedding of Bess and Amos is approaching quickly, when suddenly Billy is called to the scene, not by choice and certainly not by desire!!

    A "lost rose" is discovered at the rose farm and Billy is sent to track down its origins. He arrives unwillingly and has a plan, get there, identify this rose and GET OUT as fast as he can. However, an obstacle blocks the best laid plans. Billy has a difficult time identifying the rose and after encountering Bess after all this time, is unable to forget that sweet face. He is not the only confused individual! Bess finds herself questioning the wisdom of her upcoming wedding. Her emotions are confused and as complicated as a spider's web! What should she do?? Listen to her heart or continue with her practical plans??

    As the history of the rose unweaves, Billy and Bess , and yes , even Amos realize the miracles of Christmas.

    I must say I was caught up in Bess' life immediately. She quickly became very real to me , a person with whom to identify. Her problems were realistic and many times, my desire was to just give her a big hug and tell her things would be okay. Billy was the most frustrating young man!! He had me ready to throttle him for his unwillingness to give in to his heart. What a stubborn young man!!!

    The plot moved quite quickly and had some surprising twists and turns. Just enough to keep one interested. The information that I learned about roses was amazing and the best part was that it was introduced in such a way that one doesn't realize the amount of new knowledge being absorbed.

    All in all, a lovely Christmas read, putting you in the mood of the season.

    This book was supplied by Revell, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    What can be better at this time of year than a Christmas story with an Amish setting? Suzanne Woods Fisher delivers a great one in her Christmas at Rose Hill Farm.

    This story is a little different from many of the typical Amish fiction books I've read. The tone of the story is fairly serious -- maybe even nearing melancholy at times -- but still with a very hopeful spirit about it. Bess and Billy both have old hurts hanging over present decisions -- and they both learn important things about themselves and others as they piece together events and lessons from the past. And then there is George -- what a delightful and surprising character to find intermingled in important details of the story.

    I always enjoy finding characters from previous books in new stories. If you have read Suzanne's earlier series -- Lancaster County Secrets and Stoney Ridge Seasons -- you will recognize several old "friends," but at different stages of life than where you first met them.

    I would strongly recommend this great story from Suzanne Woods Fisher to fans of Amish fiction and even to those who may not normally read in the genre. I think a wide range of readers can relate to the characters' lives and relationships.

    Thanks to Revell Publishing for providing a copy of Christmas at Rose Hill Farm in exchange for my honest review.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher is one of the few Amish authors I read. I am not fond of many plots found in the horse and buggy novels but hers somehow always take a turn and surprise me. This one was a perfect example of a sweet romance that has me thinking of rose petals and delicious bakery treats!

    This book is tied in with the Stoney Ridge Seasons series so if you have read those you will see many familiar faces. Bess is the daughter of Jonah Reihl, owner at Rose Hill Farm. She loves helping tend the roses but she is engaged to be married and will be leaving the roses behind. The man she is marrying is Amos Lapp. He is steady and true, always having loved Bess even when she was in love with another man. Only problem is, she may still be attracted to Billy Lapp after all this time.

    I had somewhat of a hard time with the whole love triangle thing. Amos loves Bess and while she has agreed to finally marry him, she still loves Billy. And Billy has left the Amish community and works at a university now, even though he still has feelings for Bess. I felt bad for this young man who put up with a harsh childhood and family who turned on him.

    Overall a very interesting read. There are two parts that deal with relationships after marriage that are very small but somewhat in detail. This is a smaller novel than usual but really sweet. Now I have to go back and re-read the Stoney Ridge Seasons series:)

    I thought this book was a sweet love story but with a twist. It was fairly easy to guess who the character George was from his responses, though I do not remember him from The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher!

    I LOVED learning more about the history of roses. Thanks to my husband, roses are my favorite flower. I had a rose bush at our townhouse and had been told how hard they were to grow, but that particular one flourished. I was sad to leave it. I tried bringing slips here to our new home but they did not survive. Sniff. Sniff.

    The idea of waiting for the rose to open before revealing its identity added intrigue to the story for me. I really wanted to know what type of rose they had on their hands!

    This book was really all about relationships, dealing with past misunderstandings, and as usual, I really enjoyed reading Suzannes book. I found that it was sad, funny and very interesting, as I loved learning more about roses. I honestly do not have any negative thing to say. If you have a loved one who loves to read, this would be a wonderful Christmas book to gift them!
