Love Comes Home is a continuation of previous stories, but may also be read alone. Like the previous two books in the Rosey Corner series, Ann H. Gabhart creates a sweet storyline that contains both wonderfully happy and despairingly sad portions. The plot moves along relatively quickly and with ease, but in the process of telling the tale of four sisters, it looses a bit of detail and distances the reader from each individual girl. The story is not overly romantic or dramatic, although the real-life scenarios of the characters are believable and touching. The book slows a bit in the middle, but the ending is a wonderful conclusion to the struggles the girls encounter throughout the book. Overall, this novel is sweet and recommended to those who enjoy stories of strong female characters overcoming realistic hardships.

Although the synopsis reads the author, Ann H. Gabhart, "invites you back to Rosey Corner," Love Comes Home is a beautifully written, stand alone novel. The previous two books will also stand alone, and Gabhart is a master at overlapping characters and scenes from the Rosey Corner stories. It is not necessary to read the books in any specific order, unless that is your personal preference.
Love Comes Home features the three Merritt sisters as two anxiously await the return of their husbands from World War II, and the third copes with grief and loss of her husband, Sammy, and father of their daughter, Samantha. Equally involved in this story is the adopted daughter of the Merritt family, Lorena. Lorena too is awaiting something specific to her world as an adolescent.
Gabhart's prose is akin to poetry as she breathes life into her characters and scenes, and often I felt transported to Rosey Corner post-World War II.
Kate and Evie's husbands return but both are changed by their war experiences. The young wives feel at times as though their husbands are like strangers to them. Torie's grief grasped my heart as hers ached for Sammy, lost somewhere never to return home again. Yet it was Lorena who stole my heart with her wondering and speculation and, yes, confusion over her birth family while loving deeply her Merritt family.
Each page of Love Comes Home overflows with goodness, grace, and here and there struggles, all of which come together to feed the soul of the reader as each evocation of hurt, anguish, joy, laughter, community and more is expressed.
Give yourself the gift of goodness. Read Ann Gabhart's Love Comes Home. You will not be sorry.

LOVE COMES HOME is an wonderful Christian historical Romance set after World War II in the small town of Rosey Corner. #3 in the
"Rosey Corner" series, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would suggest reading the other two in this series, as well. See, Angel Sister, Book 1 and Small Town Girl, Book 2.
A four sisters, the Merritt sisters. Kate, Evangeline, Victoria and Lorena, each looking for her own future. Set right after World War II, in the small town of Rosey Corner. Each sister shares their sorrows, their joys, and their triumphs.
We re-visit Rosey Corner once again in this heartfelt tale of sacrifice, healing, hope, faith, and love. Once again, Ms. Gabhart captures, small town life, the returning of sons from war, and the aftermath of war. A heartfelt tale that will capture your heart as you follow along with the characters of this tale of an unknown future. Well written, with engaging,and enduring characters. The storyline is unique and well thought out, as well as thought provoking and emotional. A great read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

This is a beautiful story of a close community and a family, starting over after the war. World War II is finally ended and the residents of Rosey Corner are very excited. While some anxiously await the return of their loved ones, others grieve the loss of theirs. The Merrittâ€™s are facing both of these situations.
Kate and Evieâ€™s husbands both return. While the men have been away fighting the sisters have dreamed of their new lives with their husbands when they returned. Those dreams kept their hope alive, but war changes men, and that changes the plans their women have envisioned. The wives long for everything to be the way it was, but the men know they will never be the same. Toriâ€™s husband died fighting for his country. She is left a very young widow to raise her daughter alone. Even with the support of her loving family, she struggles with going on. The youngest sister, Lorena, is just blossoming into a young lady. She is ecstatic at about the return of her brother-in-laws. Her focus is on pursuing the singing career she dreams about and her youthful enthusiasm is uplifting to the family.
I love the way the author vividly captures all the emotions each character is feeling. In the midst of such happiness is confusion and struggles. As challenges unfold it is interesting to see how each sisterâ€™s personality affects her response. These things brought the people to life and made them real to me. One of the things that impressed me the most about the book is how strong the faith of the family was. Each trial the people encountered always drew them to God and His Word. There were so many lessons about how to view oneâ€™s situation from Godâ€™s point of view, and submitting to His plans. Lessons that can be applied to our lives. Ms. Gabhart also includes other people in the community. She beautifully weaves them into the fabric of the familyâ€™s lives where we learn their stories and hardships too. There is lots of excitement and surprises along the way. This is my first book of Ann Gabhartâ€™s to read and I was very impressed.
I received this book free from Revell Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This is another one of those series that just kills me that I have to wait so long for the next book to come out! I absolutely fell in love with the Merritt family in Angel Sister and delighted in the continued story in Small Town Girl.
Now we come to the third book, Love Comes Home. The story begins just as World War II is declared over. There is great celebrating going on across the country and especially in Rosey Corner. Their men are coming home!
Well, most of the men are coming home. Three of the Merritt sisters have husbands serving in the military but only two of their husbands will be coming home. Such a bittersweet time for those that lost their loved ones. You rejoice that the fighting is over but you mourn over and over the loss of the one you loved and planned a life with.
Even though the other two brother-in-laws come home, they are not the same. War changes everyone. The men have seen things that are just too horrific to forget. The women have been holding down the home front by taking jobs that their men used to have. When the soldiers come home everything changes. The men need the jobs and the women are expected to go back home. Such an unsettling time for the citizens of Rosey Corner.
All these changes bring upheaval. I enjoyed the contrast between Evie's neediness and Kate's strength. They both are faced with similar life challenges and it was enjoyable to read about each woman's struggles and how they coped with what was put before them.
This is a great continuing story about the seasons of life. There is mourning and rejoicing. There is death and new life. There is loss and there is gain. This really is a gentle story about the everydayness of life in a rural town. The characters remind us that our faith in God is what will get us through all the changes that come about. The enduring love of a family, whether from birth or adoption, is long-lasting and where we can feel safe and cared for.
If you are a fan of Jan Karon's Mitford series or Louisa May Alcott's Little Women you are going to enjoy the people of Rosey Corner. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but I would suggest that you treat yourself and begin your trip to the sweet little Kentucky town of Rosey Corner with Angel Sister.
