I was so excited to get to read another Cindy Woodsmall book because I love her writing and characters but this was extra nice because it was a Christmas book!! I love Christmas books!! They are just what I need to get me in the season. The Angel of Forest Hill: An Amish Christmas Romance by Cindy Woodsmall was a quick read and very enjoyable.
Because of Joel’s impossible situation, twenty-one-year-old Rose
must sacrifice everything. As days pass into years in the midst of the
beautiful hills, the laughter of children, and God’s providence—is it
too much for Rose to hope for love in return?
An amazing journey toward love and belonging, filled with the wonder of the season of Christ’s birth.
When Old Order Amish Rose Kurtz is asked to leave her family, travel
deep into West Virginia, and help Joel Dienner with his children in the
wake of tragedy, the quiet young woman recognizes a home where she
might find kindness instead of criticism and hope replacing harsh words.
She agrees to stay in Forest Hill and become Joel’s wife for the sake
of his family needs, but their marriage is to be a partnership, one
built from need, not love and affection.
As the years pass,
Rose continues to beckon Joel to join life again, to take joy in his
growing children, and to awaken his heart to the possibility of new
love. Joel hopes that Rose can move beyond deep-rooted hurts to see the
beautiful Christmas ahead, their season. But will the arrival of a beautiful widow and a series of misunderstandings reverse how far Rose and Joel have come?
Amish, Christmas and Romance!!! WHAT?! All in one book. This book was a great mix of these things for Rose who was asked to move to this new home in a new area and care for someone else's children who just passed away after the birth of her new child. This quiet young women makes the best of a tough situation and decides to stay in Forest Hill to be Joel's wife and take care of the children. It is amazing to watch the relationship with these children unfold and create great love in her life. There are many twists and turns through the book but you have to pick it up to find out what happens. I hope that you enjoy this short book as much as I did. I know that it will get you in the Christmas spirit if you are looking for a book to do that, this is the perfect match.
