About the book:
When the flush of victory fades, there remains a winding road to an uncertain future.
World War II is finally over and the people of Rosey Corner are joyfully welcoming the boys home. The Merritt sisters in particular are looking toward the future. Kate is eager to start a family and live out her dream of happily ever after with Jay. Evangeline craves a beautiful house and encourages Mike to pastor a big-town church. Victoria wants what can never be. And Lorena is growing up and wondering more and more about her birth family.

Each sister must learn to hold her plans with a loose hand, trusting that God will guide and strengthen them as they share the joys and sorrows of life in their little corner of the world.

Award-winning and bestselling author Ann Gabhart invites you back to Rosey Corner for a heartfelt story that closes the distance between the things that were and things that can yet be.

My thoughts:

Love Comes Home was a really good read. I loved getting to know the characters I "met" in Small Town Girl (second book in this series, but first one I read) more.

This was definitely not an "everything's perfect" read, as several of the characters go through heartbreaking situations, which made it realistic. I really felt for the characters and loved how the book wasn't just about one couple.

While I did really like the book, I didn't care for the times when it seemed like the story was being told from characters' reflections/thoughts. I preferred it more when we learned things as they happened.

All in all, a great read that I enjoyed. If there are more Rosey Corner novels, I'll probably read them. I recommend
Love Comes Home to fans of historical novels -- especially if you enjoy WWII novels and don't mind some sad scenes.
