SMALL TOWN GIRL
How long can two people stand on the brink of love without plunging in headfirst? In the autumn of 1941, rumors of war whisper through Rosey Corner. The town practically vibrates with apprehension, as if it is holding its breath. But for Kate Merritt, it seems life is letting out a prolonged sigh. As Kate watches her sister marry the man Kate has loved since she was fifteen, her heart is silently breaking. And even the attentions of Jay Tanner, the handsome best man, can’t draw her interest. Then suddenly, Pearl Harbor changes everything and Kate finds herself drawn to Jay in surprising ways. Could she truly be in love with him? And if he enlists, will she ever see him again? In her gentle and textured style, Ann H. Gabhart tells a timeless story of love, sacrifice, and longing that will grip your heart and stir your spirit. Fans of Gabhart’s Angel Sister will love seeing Kate Merritt all grown-up, as well as other characters they have come to love.
What an amazing, rich read. From the setting to the characters to the plot, Gabhart delivers a stunning story that left me sated. I am still spellbound by Rosey Corner and her captivating inhabitants. The sequel to Angel Sister, this is Kate Merritt's grown-up story. It reads fine has a standalone though. I didn't read the first book but am hankering to now. Honestly the tone of Small Town Girl has left a lingering mood that still clings to me. A wonderful mix of wonder and faith and the magic of discovering love.
