LOVE COMES HOME
When the flush of victory fades, there remains a winding road to an uncertain future.
World War II is finally over and the people of Rosey Corner are joyfully welcoming the boys home. The Merritt sisters in particular are looking toward the future. Kate is eager to start a family and live out her dream of happily ever after with Jay. Evangeline craves a beautiful house and encourages Mike to pastor a big-town church. Victoria wants what can never be. And Lorena is growing up and wondering more and more about her birth family.
Each sister must learnt to hold her plans with a loose hand, trusting that God will guide and strengthen them as they share the joys and sorrows of life in their little corner of the world.
Award-winning and bestselling author Ann Gabhart invites you back to Rosey Corner for a heartfelt story closes the distance between the things that were and things that can yet be.
We're back in Rosey Corner with the Merritt sisters and I couldn't be happier. I love this town and the people who live there -- especially the Merritt clan. You don't need to have read the first two books in the series, Angel Sister and Small Town Girl, but I think this concluding story will pack more of an emotional punch if you have.
Gabhart excels at writing true-to-life drama that stirs the soul and challenges the mind. Post-war small-town America is the perfect venue to highlight the trials that faced both returning servicemen and civilians. Married sisters, Evie and Kate are ready to take up where they left off with their newlywed husbands. Mike and Jay are just as eager, but neither is prepared for the difficult transition into civilian life. Heartache and joy and every emotion in between bond husbands and wives in a new and everlasting way. I cried and laughed right along with them.
Their war widow sister, Victoria, has her own challenges as she struggles to discover what the future holds for her and her fatherless child. And fourteen year-old baby sister, Lorena has her own riveting soul-searching plot thread.
Once again, Gabhart has created an ambiance of hope and faith that lingers long after the covers of the book are closed. An exceptional conclusion to a magnificent series.
