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. New readers will find that Ann Gabhart weaves in Small Town Girl a beautiful story that will touch their hearts and win their loyalty.
It wasn’t a good thing to be in love with the man your sister was going to marry.
Kate Merritt tries her best to be happy for her sister, Evie, as she marries the man that Kate has adored since she first laid eyes on him. However, inside Kate is breaking and not even the charms of the attractive best man, Jay Tanner, can draw her away from wondering what could have been between her and the minister. Not only is Kate dealing with this slight heartbreak, but rumors of war breaking in Europe are circulating, and Kate will soon come to find out that these are more than rumors; a full out war has broken. Kate’s entire world begins to crumble all around her.
