Product Description

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?

Publisher's Description

Lancaster County, with its rolling meadows and secret byways, may seem idyllic, but it is not without its thorns. THE ROSE TRILOGY is the stirring saga of two Amish sisters on the fringes of the church, and the unforeseen discoveries that change their lives.

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?

    This review was written for Thorn, The - eBook.
    Rose is the youngest child and daughter of the Kauffman family, and a spirited young woman. Best friends with the bishop's foster son, Nick, and being courted by a good Amish boy, Rose thinks she has almost everything she wants in life. With the exception that her mother is an invalid, Rose finds joy in her family, friends, and faith. But she soon discovers that life is not a bed of roses, and is caught betwixt and between two lives and two loves. Will she ever be able to make the right decision?

    Hen left her Amish family and faith behind when she married a man of the world. Brandon was good to her, until Hen decided to go back to her Plain life and the Old Ways. Taking their daughter with her, she tries to find her way among the People she abandoned. Will Hen and Brandon ever be able to make peace with their lifestyles and love - before an imminent separation tears them apart?

    The Thorn was a wonderful beginning to the Rose Trilogy by Beverly Lewis. So many conflicts surround the Kauffman family, and it reminded me that the Amish are just life us - plagued by fears, and followed by the same troubles we are. It's a tale that will take you to a time and place that is only ever weaved into words by a really good author. A sweet story that entertained me and I enjoyed it immensely as well.

    This was my first Amish trilogy and let me tell you, I loved it! Beverly Lewis is so talented when it comes to really showing her readers Amish life and I will most definitively be buying more of her books! Besides the fact she showed me so many things about the Amish life I didn't know, the whole story was great and really grabbed me! As soon as I read the first book, I ran and purchased the second which led to the third. Amazing is definitively the word for this book!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Beverly Lewis
Located in: Colorado Springs, CO
Submitted: July 15, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I was born in Lancaster County, PA, and lived there for the first fifteen years of my life. My maternal grandmother was of the strictest Old Order Mennonite (horse-and-buggy Mennonites), and she was shunned when she began seeing the ministerial student who was to become my grandfather. Much of my inspiration for stories comes from the many personal accounts of Grandmother Ada (Ranck) Buchwalter's experiences growing up in a Plain community, not far from my own place of birth. I'm forever grateful to my grandmother for her courage and great faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  This story has gripped my heart like no other I've ever written. The main character, Rose Kauffman, is a glowing example of mercy and love--of extending oneself to an outcast considered to be unlovely. Rose's married sister, Hannah (called Hen) is attempting to right the wrongs of her youthful past, yearning to return to the Old Ways and her Christian Amish upbringing, with her little girl in tow. The overall spiritual theme of this book points to how the Amish people embrace the sovereignty of God's will, despite life's distressing circumstances and loss.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My heart is full when I consider my devoted reader-friends. They are a constant source of encouragement and love, as I write each day. I'm so thankful for such loyal readers, who are my brothers and sisters in the family of God!
