   Tricia  Goyer's "A Christmas Gift for Rose" was on my must read list because it was not Amish fiction but rather based on a true story.  I jumped on the opportunity from Book Sneeze to read in exchange for my honest review.  I loved this story.  Rose, wanting to respect the Amish, leaves the young man of her dreams after she finds out that he assisted the Englisch during the war.  Soon she finds out that she is an Englischer herself.  Rose is thrown into a place of the unknown, unsure of who she really is and what part her life holds now.  Her loving adopted family gently fills her in on how she came to stay with them and become a part of their own.  It's written easy enough to understand yet still will touch at the reader's heart.  I promise that if you decide to read, you won't be disappointed.
