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.
Welcome back to Rosey Corner. The War is over and the guys are coming home. Ann takes us right into the middle of all of the emotions of returning soldiers. Their families are thrilled to have them home, yet the guys that left are not the same ones returning and so the dreams they had when they left have changed too.
As a navy brat and navy wife, I appreciated the realism of how war affects families. I found the spiritual theme to be perfect not over done.
Great summer read!
