The Angel of Forest Hill by Cindy Woodsmall.
Little description: A time of anticipation. A season of miracles.
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?

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Young Amish lady, Rose, would not agree on the thing that her bishop signed her… what she knew was some Amish family needed her as nanny for little children until their mommy recovers. When she came there, all have change. With newborn at her hands, she learned the devastating truth: the mother of this infant died and now she was on the bridge to marry the stranger.
Love this book: the story is predictable but so easy to read, with the characters developed well. So relate-able. I truly enjoyed the book to the last page.
