    Love Comes Home drew me in right from the beginning. It was a joy to catch up on the lives of the Merritt sisters of Rosey Corner at the end of World War II. Ann Gabhart has done a masterful job of showing the reader how residents of a typical small town reacted when their servicemen returned.

    On the other side of the issue, the reader also experiences the feelings of those same servicemen when they attempt to integrate what theyve experienced overseas with the expectations of those whove waited at home.

    Kate, Evangeline, and Victoria Merritt each have their place in the story, as does Lorena Birdsong. How these sisters learn to trust the Lords leading over their own plans makes for a heart-warming novel. Even though these characters were introduced in Angel Sister, the first book in the series, Love Comes Home can be read as a stand-alone.

    However, after reading this one Im sure youll want to go back and read Angel Sister and Small Town Girl as well. Personally, Im hoping there will be more Rosey Corner stories to follow Love Comes Home.

    I give Love Comes Home two enthusiastic thumbs up.

    Love Comes Home is yet another fantastic read by Ann Gabhart. This third installment of the series is set in post World War II. So many characters endure so much changes during the war. This book has got to have the most gut wrenching moments I have read in a long time. So many shocking revelations and moments that I had not seen coming. As I was reading this book, I kept thinking of the movie Stealing Magnolias.

    The closeness of the community, the humor and even the tragedies make for a great book. I love this book and the series and I had highly recommend them both.

    I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review which was given.

    Ann Gabhart is a very talented writer and I love reading her books. I have not read the first two books in this series but did not have any problems diving into Love Comes Home. I hope to read the first two books in the near future. I loved all of the characters and thought Fern was a novel addition to the story. Also liked the important roles Clay Weber and Aunt Hattie added to the story.

    World War II is finally over and the troops are returning home to family and friends. Kate is waiting for her husband Jay. Ready to begin their life together and start a family. Evangeline is waiting for her husband Mike a preacher and longs for material things and for her husband to be a preacher in a large church. Victoria was waiting for Sammy but sadly is now a single parent to her daughter Samantha. Lorena their younger sister who was left on the steps of their church several years ago is wanting to find out more about her birth parents. Kate and Evangeline find that the war has changed their husbands. Rosey Corner is a small town where all are eagerly waiting to welcome the boys home. A town that knows what goes on in each others lives. They are not just friends but family. They are giving, and supportive.

    The Merritt sisters are overwhelmed with happiness but also sadness. Challenges, heartaches, healing, over coming fears and struggles. You will shed tears and laughter with them. They are a strong family with a strong love for each other and faith in God.

    Will Jay and Mike find their way and overcome the trauma of the war? Will Kate have the baby she longs for? How will Evangeline's plans for the future work out? Will Victoria stay a single parent or find a new love?

    This is a heartwarming and inspiring story that will keep you turning the pages.

    I received this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    Stay For a Good Visit in Rosey Corner, Read All 3 Books

    I was very excited when I learned that I would be receiving a copy of Love Comes Home to review for The Book Club Network. I love the writing of Ann Gabhart. Since this is the final installment in the Rosey Corner trilogy, I knew I wanted to read Angel Sister and Small Town Girl first. I am so glad I did. The characters in these books are well developed and you do not want to miss any of the details of their story.

    When Love Comes Home opens, the young husbands are coming home from World War II to their brides with whom they had barely started married life. Mike, the young preacher who felt for his whole life that God had called him to preach, has changed. He spent much of the war as a prisoner of the Germans and he now doubts his call to preach. Jay, who after an abusive childhood, finally found love with Kate and her family, doesnt want to talk about the war. He keeps that part of himself hidden from Kate. Sammy, who married Tori when she was sixteen, does not make it home. He leaves behind a nineteen year old widow and child. Lorena Birdsong, the precious little girl who was left on the church steps only to be taken in and loved by the Merritt family, now wants to find her birth family. Can the faith and love from those who surround them help them to heal? Will new love come to Rosey Corner.

    The author does not gloss over the big issues of life. She addresses love and loss in a loving, straightforward manner. Her prose are beautiful and her application of spiritual truths is right on. This is a wonderful book, but dont cheat yourself by just taking a passing visit to Rosey Corner. Stay awhile and read all three books. You wont regret it!

    Love Comes Home by Ann H. Gabhart

    This book follows the Merritt family from Kentucky. You walk into a celebration as Japan has surrendered and the boys are coming home! WW2 is finally over. It sure makes you feel and realize what our country went through as our troops returned home and those that didn't. No one goes through something like this without being affected and or changing your life.

    The author did a great job with showing emotions and making the characters come alive. What a struggle this was for the Merritt sisters...a wonderful community they live in, they have each other...yet not all of the men were coming home. Those that came home were not the same. How could they be after all they have seen and gone through? The women were busy working jobs while the men were away and now the men needed the work. The of course expected the women to go back home and leave the jobs for the men.

    All of this unfolds as well as widowed at a you g age and now a single

    Mom. What heavy subject matters...yet the book is not dark and sad. This was a great boon in my opinion. I liked how the characters learn to please everything into God's capable hands.

    I wish I knew this was a series before I read it..#3 to be exact. I will be buying the rest of the series since I enjoyed it so much. I highly recommend this book.
