Review: Christmas at Rose Hill Farm
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Genre: FICT, Fiction-Christmas
Short Book Description:
Join bestselling, award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher for an Amish Christmas to remember.
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. And that suits Bess Riehl just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word of explanation? It’s time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes when Billy’s cousin Amos proposed–for the third time–and beginning to plan for her Christmas wedding.
When a “lost” rose is discovered in a forgotten corner of the greenhouse at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. His plan is to get in, identify the rose, and get out. The only catch is that he’s having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose–and he can’t get 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.
Having read quite a few of Suzanne’s books, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. Her books are possibly my favorites for Amish Fiction.
Right in time for the holidays, this is my favorite Christmas novel as of right now. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading.
Now adults, Bess and Billy, from the book The Search from the Lancaster County Secrets series, they have grown far apart, each on their own path in life. Though I haven’t read their childhood story from The Search, I didn’t really think that it was necessary as the book gives a lot of background and flashbacks.
One of the things I really liked about this book is that it is based around roses. Roses were my late grandmothers’ favorite flowers and it brought back quite a few good memories.
This is one book I definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a short but intense read for and about Christmas.
