The Angel of Forest Hill By: Cindy Woodsmall
"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?"
What a interesting read that will keep your attention all the way to the end. What a job that was
presented to Rose Kurtz by Nat Eash who was her bishop. Rose was leaving Perry County, Pennsylvania to go to Forest Hill to help out this situation. However, Rose would have never known what all would be involved for her upon her arrival.
As I read this story I couldn't imagine what all Rose went through as as she was put into this predicament of becoming a caretaker of this grieving Joel Dienner family and then onto a marriage that was in name only. But I must say her home life wasn't something great to talk about either.
How will this turn out for Rose? Will Rose be able to get pass all that had happened to her from her family and a certain member of the Dienner family? What will happen when the 'beautiful widow' arrives that will bring on "a series of misunderstandings?" I will say at a certain part in the read I really enjoyed the forgiveness that was presented to Rose from her mamm. I will stop her and just say you will just have to pick up this good read to see how well it is presented to the reader. It will definitely be one of those read that will be with you long after the read. If you are looking for a good light read this would be one for you to read.
