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?

The Angel of Forest Hill by Cindy Woodsmall was the perfect way to end a wonderful season of Christmas romance reading. I've enjoyed reading Ms. Woodsmall's Amish romance novels for quite some time and this book is one of her best! 

This story is full of Amish life, romance, Christmas and faith. The opening chapter was a bit shocking and written in  such a way that I had to read this book through till the end. I couldn't bring myself to put it down! 

I found the plot to be compelling with engaging characters.  Rose (of course) was my favorite and I cried, laughed, agonized and cheered her on throughout this amazing story.  I highly recommend reading The Angel of Forest Hill
