In the autumn of 1941, rumors of war whisper through Rosey Corner and the town seems to hold its breath in anticipation. But for Kate Merritt, it seems that life is letting out a prolonged sigh. As Kate watches her sister marry the man that 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.

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 and collecting scrap metal. Kate finds herself drawn to Jay in surprising ways, and when he enlists, her fear over him getting killed makes her wonder, could she truly be in love with him? And if she is, will she ever see him again?

In her gentle and textured style, author Ann Gabhart shares Small Town Girl, a timeless story of love, sacrifice and longing that will grip your heart and stir your spirit. Fans of Angel Sister will love seeing Kate Merritt all grown up and new readers will find a beautiful story that will win them over.

Kate Merritt is a small town girl, we met her in Angle Sister. Now if you haven't read that book, don't worry, there is enough information in this one to make it a stand alone. We reunite with some of the characters from the first book, and meet some new ones.
We meet Jay Tanner at Kate's sister's Evie's wedding to Mike. Kate has always thought herself in love with Mike, and Mike only has eyes for Evie. Jay's upbringing has been tough, but he always had a friend in Mike, and he is here to be best man. Jay likes what he sees in Kate, and loves little Lorena, who he calls Birdie, and she calls him Tanner.
When Mike warns him to stay away from his new sister Kate, he realizes that he must. Fate does have away to putting the two of them together, and they each realize "love", but can't bring themselves to it admit it to himself.
There is much talk of the War in Europe, and the fathers all remember the War to end Wars...but we know it wasn't. Ann Gabhart brings us into the living room on that Sunday in December, the 7th. Playing games and just just being family. There is no TV, of course, and they don't have the radio on. They have no idea at the time, that their lives have just changed forever at the hands of the Japanese.
The Merritt family have a great faith in the Lord, but Jay is struggling. Will Kate and Jay ever be able to make a match? Or will the curse of drink throw them apart.
Don't miss this warm book about the life just before the Second World War, and walk for a few minutes in the peace of the Small Town.

I received this book through Revell Publishing Book Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
