Publisher's Description

It is 1936 and Kate Merritt, the middle child of Victor and Nadine, works hard to keep her family together. Her father slowly slips into alcoholism and his business suffers during the Great Depression. As her mother tries to come to grips with their situation and her sisters seem to remain blissfully oblivious to it, it is Kate who must shoulder the emotional load. Who could imagine that a dirty, abandoned little girl named Lorena Birdsong would be just what the Merritts need?

In this richly textured novel, award-winning author Ann H. Gabhart reveals the power of true love, the freedom of forgiveness, and the strength to persevere through troubled times. Multidimensional characters face real and trenchant problems while maintaining their family bonds, all against the backdrop of a sultry Kentucky summer. Readers will be drawn into the story and find themselves lingering there long after they've finished the book.

Author Bio

Ann H. Gabhart is the bestselling author of several novels, including The Outsider, The Believer, and The Seeker. Her latest novel was inspired in part by the many stories her mother and two aunts told her of growing up in small town Kentucky during the 1930s. She lives with her husband a mile from where she was born in Kentucky.

    This was a great story! This family struggled with some very real issues within the family and within the community but they managed to hang on to their faith, stand strong together, forgive and move forward. I highly recommend Ann Gabhart as an author. I especially appreciate the way she includes and explains the importance of Christianity.

    This review was written for Angel Sister.
    I had a little trouble getting into this story especially with it jumping between time periods. However, I am so thankful that I stuck with it.

    Talk about flawed characters. The author does an excellent job creating realistic personalities. With the way the novel is written we get to learn about Kate's parents and how their lives together started as well as their current circumstances. Having this history brings with it details that explain so much.

    It's amazing how one little girl can alter the course of so many lives. Love, faith, hope, and forgiveness are all a part of this compelling book. Very worthwhile read.

    Angel Sister is a fantastic Book! The Story of Kate and little Lorena is adorable, and the family and what they go through together is a great story. I saw some reviews about how it's so "christian" well hello? It's a Christian book, the way a Christian book should be written. Our book club did this and they LOVED it, couldn't put it down some of them said. I was also fortunate to meet Ann Gabhart and she is such a sweet lady with a great gift. I've already ready the next book in the series and it was just the same, so now our ladies are passing that one around. Highly Recommended!

    This review was written for Angel Sister.
    Victor, Nadine, and Kate Merritt are the main characters in this book. The story revolves around their past and present lives. Victor has a drinking problem which started when he was serving in WWI. I strongly suspect that Preston Merritt, Victor's Father, played a big part in it too. Preston was a man that his son could never please. Victor could do nothing right in his Father's eyes; the reason goes back to when Victor was growing up.

    Nadine Merritt is the Daughter of Preacher Reece. She too could never live up to her Father's expectations. Her Father was always praying over her and quoting scriptures at her. She could do nothing right in his eyes.

    Victor and Nadine married against both their Father's wishes. They were so happy early on in their marriage. Soon after marriage, Victor went off to fight in the war. Their lives would never be the same.

    Kate Merritt is fourteen years old and the middle daughter in the family of three girls. Her mother depends on Kate to take over and help her father when he comes home drunk and to help her mother with household chores and other problems that might crop up. Kate never quibbles about it. She just does it.

    This story goes back and forth between the past and present telling both sides of Victor and Nadine's life. This is a necessary part of this book. It has to happen this way in order to get the full picture of what happened and why.

    A five year old girl named Lorena Birdsong is found by Kate sitting on the steps of Grandfather Reece's church. Her parents couldn't care for her and that is where they left her. Lorena sees Kate as her Angel. Has Lorena been sent from God to rescue the Merritt family from destruction?

    This book is about unconditional love, hanging on to faith, and the ability to forgive. The Author, Ann H. Gebhart takes you through a variety of emotions. I felt their joy, their happiness, their anger and their pain. I lived it with them.

    This review was written for Angel Sister.
    After reading the summary of this book, I was intrigued. Interesting story line, gripping events, and a wonder of the unknown (what will happen in the book) made me pick this book out to read and review. Unfortunately, I could not get into the book. I believe it was more a "this isn't my style of book" rather than the author's writing. Many others seem to enjoy this book. And, I would say it was the story line, but I tried reading another of this author's books, and had the same problem.

    In conclusion, I applaud the author for writing such a gripping tale. I only wish that it would have wrapped itself around me and pulled me in for the ride.
