In the autumn of 1941, rumors of war whisper through Rosey Corner. The town practically vibrates in anticipation, 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. Kate's friends are rushing to get married before the boys go off to war. The newspapers talk of women making airplanes and bombs. Everyone in town begins rolling bandages, planting victory gardens, collecting scrap metal. Kate finds herself drawn to Jay in surprising ways, and when he enlists she can hardly breathe worrying about him getting killed. Could she truly be in love with him? And if she is, will she ever see him again?

In her gentle and textured style, Ann Gabhart tells a timeless story of love, sacrifice, and longing that will grip the heart and stir the spirit. Fans of Angel Sister will be thrilled to see Kate Merritt all grown up.

A Slow-Paced Read
3 stars By sarah, Jun 14 2015
Having previously read The Seeker by Ann, I was aware of her writing style. She has a tendency to be very detailed with the background details of a story, and likes to include in-depth side storylines of supporting characters. This can be excellent if the pace of the story keeps moving forward. Unfortunately, this novel does not do this. At the halfway point of the story, the reader is only given a small glimpse of the direction of the novel - it is very long winded. I found there was not a lot of content to keep me interested in finishing the story.

For those who enjoy every tiny detail, it may be enjoyable. But for most typical readers, it lacks a faster pace and engaging characters to hold our attention.
