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.
This is the third installment of the Merritt sisters, and this is Kate's story. I have not yet read the first two novels, but I thoroughly enjoyed this Christian fiction. The author effectively filled in all of the information needed to fully understand the backstory.
Each character is well fleshed-out and easy to get to know. I like the people of Rosey Corner. I feel as if I'd be happy living there. In addition, history comes alive as the story unfolds. The war is over and men are coming home. There are the awkward moments of getting reacquainted. I picked up on many details of that time period.
There's enough romance to please the romance reader; there's enough history to please the history buff. This is a book most will enjoy.
