When WWII hits, even the small town Rosey Corner is affected. Just when Kate has warmed up to Jay Tanner will she lose him forever when he enlists in the Army?
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: HELLO, HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL!!! Let me preface this to say that I am not a huge fan of 85 percent of the Christian fiction literature produced today due to finding it preachy. HOWEVER, Ann Gabhart works for me. Her work is NEVER preachy or condescending and the stories always warm me from my heart down to my toes. This was the case with Small Town Girl.
Her characters were warm, welcoming and real, and, to boot, the story was incredibly well written and engrossing. I found my sucked into the story like I have been with some of my favorite Janette Oke books. The story laid out well and in good time without lagging or dragging and felt very real.
Although, this book is number 2 in the series, it could very easily stand on its own.
Just good writin'!
