Book Review: Love Comes Home

Cover Art

About

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 learn 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 that closes the distance between the things that were and things that can yet be.


Ann H. Gabhart is the bestselling author of Angel Sister, Small Town Girl, and Words Spoken True, as well as several Shaker novels--The Outsider, The Believer, The Seeker, The Blessed, and The Gifted--and The Heart of Hollyhill series. She lives with her husband a mile from where she was born in rural Kentucky. Learn more at www.annhgabhart.com.

 My Reflections:

 I thoroughly enjoyed Gabhart's third book, in her Rosey Corner Series. In this poignant novel that delves into loss, hardship, love and new beginnings Gabhart does a fine job of fleshing out the real issues of the era. 

The story begins just as world war 11 is declared over, and the troops are coming home. Celebrations break out all over the country, and Rosey Corner is no exception. As the men who have survived return home, life is just not the same. Women are expected to resume their domestic responsibilities after working hard at "masculine positions". Men are expected to forget the horrors of war and find a new normal. Thing is nothing is the same, and life is forever altered.
Each of the Merritt sisters must come to grips with their new realities and persevere through. Such heart gripping accounts.

I so enjoyed how Gabhart captures the the emotions of her characters and artfully displays them in a seamless and believable array of true to life depictions. She has a way of knitting together all her characters and coming out with a beautifully bound masterpiece.

I have not read Angel Sister but had the pleasure of reading Small Town Girl, and absolutely loved that one. All Gabhart's books can be read as a stand alone but do your self a favour and treat your self to the whole collection!
