The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

Love Comes Home Book Review

SUMMARY:  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.

REVIEW:  This latest look at the happenings in Rosey Corner does not disappoint. The author did a great job of making me feel like I was there with the characters as they struggled with the new normal: life after war.  I like how things work out for Lorena as she decides to search for her birth parents, though not all of it was what she wanted.  My heart went out to Kate and Jay but I LOVED how he bucks the rules to take care of his wife.  While I was happy with the way the book (and series) ended, I want to know the rest of their stories.  I think that shows what a wonderful novel this is.
