I read this on the kindle

This was the last in the 3 book series

It was a nice story but as with the other 2 books rather slow also the story opens with a
Car exploding & this was a the main start to the story but then it seems to have got left & just comes back into the story here & there once you finish the book it a nice story but overall of the series I think each book doesn't flow as well as some books
A quick, easy read that is worth the time, A Rose Remembered is the third book of a trilogy. It has elements of amish life, suspense, romance, and the struggles of dealing with mistakes you have made in life and/or disabilities that make doing some things harder. I really enjoyed the realistic spiritual growth some of the characters went through. I did find it a little hard to believe that one character under shunning was eventually able to live in the same community with the amish, find a job, ...more

A Rose Revealed is #3"Amish Farm Trilogy" by Gayle Roper

This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it a lot, being the third book in a trilogy did not hurt the story at all..Rose is a wonderful character.
The book starts out literally with a bang, explosive-yes.
Rose is a nurse and is helping Sophie Hostetter as she heals, today is her first day out and the day is definately not what Rose expected in a million years.
Rose spends time on an amish farm and meets again one Jake Z

Previously published as The Decision, A Rose Revealed is a bit different type of an Amish book. It is set in Amish country and some of the characters in the story are Amish, but Rose the main character is not Amish.
Rose is a visiting nurse/home health nurse, and has worked among the Amish for years, she also was raised in the same area, so she knows much about Amish tradition. When a horrifying explosion leaves Rose dazed and confused, and her patient and the patient's son dead, Rose collapses.

A Rose Revealed is the final book in the Amish Farm Trilogy. You feel like you really know the Zook family and friends. This book is Rose Martin's and Jake Zook's romance. Forgiveness is one of the main themes in this story. Accepting the Lord's forgiveness doesn't seem to be as big a problem as much as forgiving themselves for their demons. I enjoyed this book and loved the epilogue that let me knew what happened 3 years down the road!

Book 3
From my own bookshelf

Rose Martin became a nurse to be able to help people and that's just what she did. She came to understand that being a nurse not only meant helping people get better but death. Death seemed to follow her.

Sophie Hostetter had cancer and was murdered in front of Rose. Rose was soon in the middle of a web of family secrets that put her in danger.

She has an attraction to an Amish raised Jake Zook. This only makes her life more of a mystery. She hel

In the final book of the Amish Farm Trilogy, once again, the Zook family takes in a non-Amish woman into their household. Nurse Rose Martin is drawn into a mystery when her patient is killed in a car explosion. Roper weaves tests of faith between should be couples as Amish and Christian faith causes their relationships to clash and be tested. This book is the most complex of the trilogy, but like the other can stand on its own.

Theme: forgiveness
This final part of the trilogy Rose, the EMT that found Jake after his accident in book one, has witness a murder and finds herself closer to Jake, the Amish raised man in a wheelchair.

What got me 147. "Why do we need to forgive ourselves if God's already forgiven us in Christ?" "Isn't not forgiving yourself saying your're more important than God?"..."Or as important as God?"... "If God forgave you, and God is really God, shouldn't that be enough? Doesn't insis

Book 3 of 3....Very good story.

A lovely conclusion to the series. (At least I think its the conclusion. It wrapped up as if it was.)

Picking up with two of the characters introduced in the first book, but Rose was not explored until now.

A lovely, light-hearted, humourous read, though with more serious overtones as well. (Well it can't ALL be funny! :))

All in all, I loved the characters. The situation was a bit understated, but added enough action to keep things rolling and ended very satisfactorily.

After reading the first book in the Amish Farm Trilogy I rushed out and bough the second and third and read them both back to back. Roper has spun magic throughout this series and it makes for obsessive reading. She excels at characterization -- developing relationships that are fraught with complication and angst but somehow still laced with hope. And there's always an emphasis on spiritual truths that make me pause and take stock of my own life.

I loved this book and I actually wanted more books in the series.
In this book I liked the journey and the suspense of what was going to happen next.
Was shocked as to who the bomber was though.
The ending was GREAT!
Good story, but it's a shame the publisher chose a cover illustration that has nothing to do with the plot.

slant on an Amish story.
