"An emotion-packed story of pain and forgiveness, friends and enemies, love and war that will leave you thinking about the characters and their journeys long after the final page."

Anne Mateer, author of Playing by Heart

"Terrie Todd's novel, Rose Among Thornes, is a powerful story of man's struggle to forgive and to make restitution; to stop hate and to find love; and to let go of fear long enough to grab hold of God. Though Terrie's story is about two families on different sides of the interment of Canadians of Japanese during World War II, we've seen much the same inhuman treatment of those of different cultures and beliefs throughout the history of mankind. Filled with a cast of well-developed characters, this accurately researched novel with its heart-wrenching scenes reminds us to stay vigilant. Thankfully, the ending brings readers an abundance of hope and healing."

Clarice G. James, author of The Least of These

"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
