Love Comes Home by Ann Gabhart

Love Comes Home is a sweet continuing story of the Merritt sisters. I did not read the first in this series, but I read the second and loved it. I really liked this one as well, but it didn’t seem to have as much content on its own, as the other did. It seemed to not quite get somewhere.

Although that was the case, I still enjoyed the continuing story. The war is now over. Victoria’s Sammy did not come home, and Victoria has to learn how to live all over again, raising their precious daughter. Evangeline is as fussy as ever. And when Mike comes home, she seems even more discontented than before, even though she has everything a beautiful preacher’s wife could ever want.

Then there’s Kate and Jay. As Jay returns, Kate is eager to start a family and get on with their lives.

Lorena is growing up, not the little girl she used to be. Can she find her birth family? The sisters worry it cannot be a happy ending.

The family portrayed by these books are made up of caring, simple, and refreshing characters. They are the family everyone wishes they could belong to. Join in and take a trip to Rosey Corner.

A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino


A Place in His Heart was an intriguing book. Mary is a young lady who is grown up, and ready to marry. But her father wants her to marry a young man she grew up with; one whom she just can’t love. Barnabas is a young widower who needs a wife for his children. He is a good man who will respect Mary and love her. But is there room in his heart? His beloved Anne was so perfect for him in every way. With Barnabas’ new “Puritan” thinking, Mary’s father just isn’t sure they are a good match. And on their wedding day, talk of making a new life in the New World is overheard. Can it be true?

Is Mary ready to start anew in a place she has never seen? They do, in fact make the voyage to the Americas, and life becomes incredibly difficult. Work from sun up to sun down is the norm, and Mary works hard to make a house a home for her little family. Even though Barnabas respects her greatly and takes precious care of her, she just feels like she can’t get into his heart, no matter how hard she tries.

I loved this book for its historical value. I was glued to the pages, imagining what life was like for those first settlers in New England. I look forward to the next in this series!
