Review: Small Town Girl
Author: Ann H. Gabhart
Genre: FICT, Historical Fiction
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.
I find World War 2 fiction fascinating, so I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s always been an era that has kept me captivated and interested. That’s why as soon as I saw this book I put it on my “to-read” list.
I was not disappointed by this book. Though I have found a couple of Ann Gabharts’ books to be a little on the dull side for me, I loved this one. I finished it in only a day.
Kate, the main character in the book, was an inspiration to me as I see a lot of my own personality in her. Looking through her eyes and experiencing the things that she went through was a wonderful experience.
I hope you enjoy this book and if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it you.
