Forgiveness is the most powerful force on earth. “Thoughtful and timely. In Rose Among Thornes, Terrie Todd shows the difficult conditions faced by Japanese-Canadians in World War II―a topic rarely explored in novels―as well as the horrific treatment of prisoners of war. Both Rose and Rusty have reasons to hate, reasons never to forgive. Through their struggles, we see the cost of not forgiving and the blessings of forgiveness. A beautiful story that makes you feel―and think. Highly recommended!” ~Sarah Sundin, bestselling and award-winning author of When Twilight Breaks and the Sunrise at Normandy series
