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.

My Thoughts: As a fan of Angel Sister, it was great to see Kate all grown up. Kate has her own thoughts  and ideas, which doesn’t thrill Carl who believes they are a  "couple." Jay, or Tanner as he wants to be called has sparked her interest. Pearl Harbor changes everything for them, like it did for everyone in 1941, with Tanner fighting in the war what will happen between him and Kate.

I highly recommend this book!
