World War II is finally over and the people of Rosey Corner are busy 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 wants a beautiful house and encourages Mike to pastor a big-town church. Victoria wants what can never be–a life with a man who will never come back. And little Lorena is growing up and wondering more and more about her birth family.
Through the heartfelt storytelling of bestselling author Ann Gabhart, readers join these endearing characters as they walk an uncertain road. 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.
Cafe Lily's Review:
Love Comes Home continues the story of the Merritt family, and the changes they face as the war comes to an end. I have read the two previous books leading up this one, and while Angel Sister was my favorite, Love Comes Home was excellent. I believe it is my new favorite in this series.
As I've mentioned before, these titles easily stand alone but I think reading them in order makes the storyline flow better, as the second and third books refer back to previous characters. I highly recommend them.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that a fourth book will follow and continue the story of Clay and Torie - I love the Merritt family and hope to read more about them. The characters in these books are easy to relate to and interesting. I never tire of reading Ann's books.
