Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War II--only to discover she's an Englischer herself.

Born in the midst of the hardships of The Great Depression, Rose grew up in Berlin, Ohio, in the arms of a loving Amish family. But she is overwhelmed by self-doubt when she learns that she was born Englisch and abandoned when her family moved West in search of work.

Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind--Englischers? When the man she loves leaves her behind, Rose is certain he left for good. Yet Rose discovers sometimes our greatest gifts are the ones we fear.

Stories that I feel like I need more depth and character development always leave me stranded. This was a sweet story of a young girl's discovery of who she actually is. IN this process she learns to forgive and let go the past. the lesson is very significant but the story needs more. More romance, more.
But then, it would not have been a quick read (thats the trade off)
