Product Description

There's something amazing happening at Pleasant Manor — a care center at the very edge of town. Using the wondrous power of love, a little girl named Rose is creating miracles in the lives of its residents. One by one, she touches the hearts of her new friends — Cleston, Helen, Jake, Fred, and Ina — with the light of hope.

Most important to Rosie, though, is Bessie.

Rosie and Bessie become inseparable best friends. Day by day Bessie teaches Rosie invaluable life lessons, including “Home is a place where you are surrounded by love.” Just before Christmas, when the woman who had taught her so much about living speaks of dying, Rosie learns what true love, beauty, and friendship really mean. Her understanding is an invaluable gift for all.

Friendship has no age limit
By , Submitted on 2016-09-20

Christmas Rose is a sweet story showing friendship has no age barrier. The characters are well-written. I found myself finding uncanny similarities between the characters and individuals in my own life. The book follows the growth of friendships between a little girl named Rosie and the residents at a care center and specifically her best friend, Bessie. The book has Christian undertones but is more of a feel good book rather than a religious book. I easily read this in one evening. This would be a sweet story for families to read together then take elderly neighbors a treat or visit the local care center. This story is not just for the holiday season, it should be enjoyed year round

In the middle of a stressful day I took a break and poured through this beautiful book in just over an hour. I chuckled at some parts, and wept during others. It was just what I needed to get me through a busy day! Inspirational!

I enjoyed this very much. Very quick reading too. Rosie was such an example of what we should all be striving for. I love it and have sent it to others for Christmas. Makes a great Christmas gift or any time of year.

I love to read a new Christmas novel every year for the holidays. I wasn't sure what to expect when I read Christmas Rose, but I was definitely touched. It is amazing what you can learn from the people in your life. If you love Christmas Jars and any of Richard Paul Evan's novels, you will love Christmas Rose.
