Sometimes I wonder what else nice I can say about an author. Suzanne Woods Fisher, just has a way that she captures the essence of a character that makes you want to say everything nice you can think of. This book is no exception. A beautiful story, set at Christmas time, centered around a mysterious rose, what more could a girl ask for? I loved the story and have to say one of my favorites in this book is George. Another wonderful story, great for the holidays, actually great for any time of the year. 5 stars from this reviewer.

About the book:Bess Riehl is preparing Rose Hill Farm for her Christmas wedding, but her groom isn't who she thought it would be. Billy Lapp is far away from his Amish roots working as a rose rustler for Penn State and wants nothing to do with Stoney Ridge, his family, or Bess. And that suits Bess just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word, without any explanation? It's time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes to Amos Lapp, Billy's cousin and best friend. But as Bess and Amos's wedding day draws near, her emotions tangle into a tight knot. She loves Amos. Yet she can't forget Billy.
When a "lost" rose is discovered at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. Get in, identify the rose, and get out. That's his plan. The only catch is that he's having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose, and he can't get those tropical blue eyes of Bess Riehl out of his mind.
As the history of the lost rose is pieced together, it reminds Bess and Billy---and Amos, too---that Christmas truly is the season of miracles.
