{More about Christmas at Rose Hill Farm}

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm || (Revell Books, September 2014)

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.

Press Release

Suzanne Woods Fisher invites book clubs to take part in Christmas brunch

Christmas comes early for fans with the release of ‘Christmas at Rose Hill Farm’

Seattle: Best-selling, award winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers to celebrate Christmas with her this year by hosting a Christmas at Rose Hill Farm(Revell/September 2, 2014/ISBN: 978-0800721930/ hardcover/$15.99) themed brunch. Between now and September 29, readers can sign up on the author’s website at suzannewoodsfisher.com/book-club-brunch to host. Hosts will be able to choose their celebration day between November 1 and December 23.

Hosts will be selected and notified via email on October 3. From the entries received, 50 hosts will be chosen to receive a party kit, which includes:

— One copy of Christmas at Rose Hill Farm
— Discount code to purchase book club copies
— One copy each of Finding Spiritual Whitespace by Bonnie Gray and One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon from Revell (can be used as door prizes or kept by host)
— Brunch menu ideas and recipe cards
— Amish-themed trivia
— A book conversation guide
— Suggested outline for planning the morning
— Link to a special recorded message from the author

The brunch is the perfect opportunity for Amish fiction fans, as well as garden lovers, to get together, enjoy the holiday season, and discuss Fisher’s latest release.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, Fisher encourages hosts to collect non-perishable food items from their guests to be donated to the host’s choice of local food banks or community shelters. For each group that collects 50 items on the day of their event, Fisher will donate $10 to one of her favorite local charities, Shepard’s Gate, a shelter for abused women and children.

“There’s an unusual character named George in this Christmas story,” Fisher said, “who has a knack for helping Billy see a bigger picture and get back on track. We all need someone like George in our lives—and we need to be ‘George-like’ to others. That’s the motive behind this food drive. It’s a way to help others make a fresh start and to remind them they’re not alone. To me, that’s the very best gift of Christmas. ‘Emmanuel. God is with us.’”

About Christmas at Rose Hill Farm

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. And that suits Bess Riehl just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word of explanation? It’s time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes when Billy’s cousin Amos proposed — for the third time — and beginning to plan for her Christmas wedding.

When a “lost” rose is discovered in a forgotten corner of the greenhouse at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. His plan is to get in, identify the rose, and get out. The only catch is that he’s having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose — and he can’t get 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. 

About the Author

Suzanne Woods Fisher is a bestselling, award winning author of Amish fiction and non-fiction and a columnist for The Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. She has won a Carol award, been a finalist for the Christy Award, and was a two-time finalist for the ECPA Book of the Year.

Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, who was raised Plain in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. She travels back east a couple of times each year for research. Fisher has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. She has an underlying belief in her books — you don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles into your life: simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily, trusting in God.

When Fisher isn’t writing, playing tennis or bragging to her friends about her grandbabies, she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Buzz

This charming novel pulls readers into Rose Hill Farm and the relationships developing there. While there is a glimpse of the Amish’s simplicity and different way of living, this is not the focus of the story. Instead, readers feel connected and interested in the characters’ lives, relating to them despite the differences in lifestyle. Fisher’s latest novel is delightful to veteran readers of her work as well as those picking up her books for the first time. — Romantic Times
