Love Comes Home by Ann Gabhart
The war is finally over and the men are coming back to Rosey Corner Ky and the Merritt sisters in particular are happily running around getting ready to meet their men again. Papa Merritt tells them they wont be the same guys that left so be patient and give them a lot of love. Love is something this family knows about so there will be no problem here.
Lorena was left on church steps long ago at the age of 5 and Kate found her and took her home and has loved her ever since..she became an honorary sister right then at the beginning.
Aunt Hattie is an old black woman that has done midwifery in the hills of Ky for many years and she is close to the Merritt family, an honorary aunt to the family...so much love in this family they pass it around.
Mike was a preacher before he left for the war but came back not wanting to jump back into the pulpit. His faith was a bit shaken and it would take some time for him to heal but Evie who had loved him forever would help in that dept.
Jay was the husband of Kate and he fell in love with the whole Merritt family and Kate in particular, He knows Kate wants to start a family and he is not so sure he will make a good father, his father gave him away to an aunt that didn't really want him either and he needed the love that abounded in Rosey Corners and the Merritt family.
One of the sisters Victoria lost her husband while he was at war -Sammy didn't get to come home but they had married before he left and she had a little girl, Samantha to raise and she was so like her daddy.
Clay is a young man that farmed in the community and he had loved Victoria from afar because Sammy was his best friend. Now he is hoping that "Tori" will look at him as more then a friend. He has helped raise his sisters when his dad died early in life. He loves children and knows he could help Tori raise Samantha and that little girl liked him too.
You will want to read the story of this little corner of the world in Ky and get to know this family and the community they live in.
