Rose Kauffman, a spirited young woman, has a close friendship with the bishop's foster son. Nick dresses Plain and works hard but stirs up plenty of trouble too. Rose's sister cautions her against becoming too involved, but Rose is being courted by a good, Amish fellow, so dismisses the warnings. Meanwhile, Rose keeps house for an English widower but is startled when he forbids her to ever go upstairs. What is the man hiding?

Rose's older sister, Hen, knows more than she should about falling for the wrong man. Unable to abandon her Amish ways, Hen is soon separated from her very modern husband. Mattie, their young daughter, must visit her father regularly, but Hen demands she wear Amish attire--and speak Pennsylvania Dutch, despite her husband's wishes. Will Hen be able to reestablish her place among the People she abandoned? And will she be able to convince Rose to steer clear of rogue neighbor Nick?

 Christianbook.com Interview with Beverly Lewis


 

What inspired you to write The Thorn?

The idyllic rural setting, in the heart of Lancaster County’s Amish farmland, took on a life of its own, nearly like a character in the cast of my story. I was also influenced to write The Thorn after rereading an old classic tale, as well as Obedience, by Andrew Murray.

What is your favorite holiday recipe?

Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, found on page 146 of The Beverly Lewis Amish Heritage Cookbook. (Honestly, would my readers ever forgive me for withholding the description of this recipe?)

Can you share a favorite memory from the holidays?

One very special Christmas Eve, years ago, I was sitting across the living room from our shimmering tree and felt tenderly drawn to pray for the biological mother of the baby we were waiting to adopt. Little did I know our precious first baby’s birth mother, scared and quite young, was experiencing her first pangs of childbirth that very night.

What is your favorite Christmas song/hymn?

Really, only one?? “What Child Is This?” and “Sleigh Bells.”

Does your family have any holiday traditions?

Sure. The annual Birthday Cake for Jesus is one family tradition that has endured through the years. The cake is accompanied by the lighting of many candles (but not 2,000+!) and the family’s singing the birthday song for the “birthday boy,” and then cutting the cake … and thanking God for sending His most wonderful gift in the form of a tiny baby boy.

Another tradition is our annual Gingerbread House-Making, followed by “unbiased” judges—usually my dad and my sister—who award homemade paper medals for each beautiful and unique gingerbread house. Everyone wins for creativity!

What is your favorite holiday movie?

A Christmas Carol, with George C. Scott as Scrooge.


Do you have a favorite holiday book?

The Little Match Girl, by Hans Christian Andersen.
