Small Town Girl by Ann H. Gabhart

This week I had the privilege of reading another book by Ann H. Gabhart! Small Town Girl goes right along with her first Rosy Corner book, Angel Sister. Although I have not yet read Angel Sister, this book was able to stand on it's own without having to read the previous book.

Small Town Girl is set in 1941, right when America was on the brink of war. Young men were being drafted left and right, and the future seemed so uncertain. Kate Merritt, the second of the four sisters, watches her oldest sister marry Mike, the man Kate has loved since she was just 15. But Mike barely knew she existed after setting eyes on her older sister, Evangeline. Everyone expects Kate to marry Carl, but is that what she really wants? Kate has grown up with him, but she doesn't love him and she can't see herself married to him.

But then Kate meets Jay Tanner, who just happens to be the best man in Mike and Evangeline's wedding. From that moment on, Kate can't forget about Jay. Mike says she shouldn't trust Jay because he's not good enough for her. He never stays in one place for too long, and Mike fears this time won't be any different. But will he stick around for Kate? Or will he be drafted into the war like the rest of the young men?

Ann H. Gabhart will pull you in from the very beginning of the story. This book is a sweet love story based on the historical events of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the war. The story was both suspenseful and exciting, and at times made me wonder what was going to happen next! I have definitely become a fan of Ann H. Gabhart's work and will not hesitate to read more of her books!

I received this book for free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group to give my honest unbiased opinion.
