The Angel of Forest Hill

What’s Inside: The Angel of Forest Hill

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:

I absolutely loved this book my heart was breaking for Rose I could completely understand why she felt the way she did her upbringing was horrible she never truly knew what love was from her own family that is why she second guess everything even her own feelings. Then we have Joel who lost the love of his life not knowing how he is going to make it with 3 very small children. I could not put this book down I read it in one sitting! I love how no matter what the situation looks like all you need to is to trust in God an he will bless you just like he did for Rose & Joel just in time for Christmas.

Star Rating:

Overall I give The Angel of Forest Hill 5 Stars it was beautiful written an pulled on my heart strings from the very first page.
Note: I received this book for free in return for my honest review from Blogging for Books.
