Small Town Girl

Friday, August 2, 2013
In spite of Evie saying that Kate would find the right man to love, Kate had no assurance that would ever happen. Not as long as she stayed in Rosey Corner, and how could she leave? She belonged in this place. She wasn’t someone like Jay Tanner who could drift from place to place because he had no roots. She had roots. Deep roots. As if he knew she was thinking about him, his eyes settled on her.

Book: Small Town Girl: A Novel by Ann H. Gabhart, Revell Publishers, 2013

Genre: Historical Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 17+
Subjects: Dating Relationships, Family Relationships, World War II
Summary: He blew in to be the best man in her sister’s wedding. Kate thought he’d blow right out again. That’s what she was told anyway. He wasn’t someone to lay down roots or stay anywhere. But he did stay. And that complicated things that were already complicated. There’s the hometown boy who is convinced they will get married someday even though Kate is convinced she will never love him as anything more than a brother or a friend. There’s her first love who chose someone else instead of her. There’s a dream of seeing a world beyond Rosey Corner. And now there’s Jay. Everyone loves him, but Kate is trying hard to not to. The question is how long can they resist the attraction and what will happen if they succeed at doing so?
Notes: A sequel to Angel Sister, Small Town Girl tells the story of Kate who is now a young woman ready for love. She is torn between her strong roots to her family and small community and the desire for adventure. When a young man comes to town that she falls in love with, she has to make a choice of what direction to go. More than that though, it’s simply a story of letting God lead your heart. Kate has to learn to rely on God to give her what she needs to love and trust. This book is geared more at the adult romance market, but the main characters are young adults. It is set right at the beginning of the United States’ involvement in WWII.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 4/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

1 John 4:18 – There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Thank you to Revell for providing me with a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
