How long can two people stand on the brink of love without plunging in headfirst?
In the autumn of 1941, rumors of war whisper through Rosey Corner. The town practically vibrates with apprehension, 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 and Kate finds herself drawn to Jay in surprising ways. Could she truly be in love with him? And if he enlists, will she ever see him again?
Have you ever read a book and found yourself disappointed when it was done, not because it was poorly written but because you were truly sad to see the story end?!? That was Small Town Girl for me.
I absolutely LOVED this book!! Ann H. Gabhart did an AMAZING job with this story – from developing characters that were easy to love (or hate) and identify with to weaving together various plotlines that kept me turning the pages, this book was well-written and a truly enjoyable read.
I give Small Town Girl five stars and highly recommend adding it to your summer reading list!!
