Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

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.

3.0 su 5 stelle Interesting novel, but a bit too sweet for me. 5 novembre 2011
Di Joanne Long - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
When this book was chosen as a book club selection, not one of us ladies realized that it was actually Christian fiction. Although I am a Christian, I have found that much Christian fiction I read just ends up being a bit too unrealistic for my taste. I can tell you that most of the ladies in my group loved this novel, while my final thoughts tend to be a bit more reserved.

Although I didn't enjoy this story as much as the other ladies, I did find appreciation within the story itself. We are brought to a small community in Kentucky during the Great Depression to follow the lives of the Merritt family. We are shown glimpses of past events that all of the family members have been avoiding, but now realize that they must confront these demons if their lives are going to continue without hurting one another.

Victor and Nadine fell in love long ago, and it was very touching as they both reflected on their love and lives together as they were struggling to keep their marriage intact. They were so young and in love that I don't think either one of them realized how they got to this place in their marriage where they no longer recognized each other. But Nadine kept her faith in the Lord and her husband and once Victor admitted to Nadine that he needed help, she embraced him and offered him her support.

Kate is the middle sister of the Merritt family and for some reason has taken the weight of the family's problems on her own shoulders. When Kate discovers a young girl that appears to be left on the church doorstep her motherly instincts take over and she takes young Lorena Birdsong under her wing. When Kate brings Lorena home everyone is smitten with her, but little do they know the fight that is ahead of them if they intend to try to offer a home to her in the future. This little girl's presence within the Merritt household ignites a tenacity within the household that is needed if they are going to stay together.

I don't want to give away any more of the story in the event that you read it yourself. As I indicated earlier, I did enjoy the story but there were snippets of the writing I did not enjoy. The book is told in third person, but every now and then a phrase was in there that was from a first person viewpoint. I also had a problem with the timeline throughout the novel. Very often a character was reflecting on past events and I found that the flow from past to present to be confusing. I found myself having to stop reading once and awhile and go back over the last couple of pages just to be sure I was following the story correctly.

Besides my few problems with this novel, I did find enjoyment from reading it. The ladies in my book club loved it and it created great discussions with themes of love, forgiveness, war, and familial relationships.

5.0 su 5 stelle Angel Sister Kate 26 giugno 2014
Di Kathy Dobyns - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Such an interesting story I had a hard time laying down when I had other things to do. "Angel Sister" was a delightful story, but it sure has some very sad moments too. I loved the way the author, Ann H. Gabhart, took a family with three daughters and added a fourth child who was left on a church's doorstep due to hard times and an inability to feed an extra child. This book was written during WWI about a little town named Rosey Corner in Kentucky. The characters have all lived there most of their lives, an it was common for sweethearts in school to marry and raise children, as did Nadine and Victor.
Another set of interesting, but different, characters were an adult brother and sister who never married. The sister seems brain damaged from after effects of flu that killed so many, including their parents. Fern doesn't always speak in full sentences, but she has a strong constitution and builds cedar palaces in the woods, cutting down cedars with only a hatchet. She lives in the woods. She is quite a unique individual who is a thread between many of the people in this.
This book has a strong Christian theme and is clean reading. I gave it five stars cause it is well written and very believable.

5.0 su 5 stelle My name is Lorena Birdsong 15 luglio 2014
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
GENRE: Inspirational fiction

SETTING: Small town America; Rosey Corner, Kentucky; Depression era

CENTRAL FEMALE CHARACTER: KATE MERRITT is the middle daughter of 3 girls. Everything falls on her shoulders. Reliable without fault and she does not mind taking responsibility. Mature for her age of 14 years.

CENTRAL MALE CHARACTERS: No central male character(s) as this inspirational story is centered around KATE.

SYNOPSIS: Tori is the youngest of three, Evie is the oldest and lives in the clouds. Nadine still loves her husband Victor who fights his demons with drink. Fern is off her rocker. Aunt Hattie is wise. Preacher Reece is angry with his daughter for marrying Victor. And, Lorena Birdsong says her name every morning and every night so people will know who she is.

Humor to be found. Get the tissue box in some cases.

WHAT I LIKED: Mention of scriptures. "Live today. Pray today. Let the Lord take care to tomorrow...." What an inspiration not only in small town America.

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE: Victor's wimpish personality ad nauseam. He is "afraid", "afraid" and (you got it), "afraid".

I give this book (FIVE) stars because written in narration format (interesting) and "all" colorful characters each with memorable names, personalities and lives.

What a refreshing book Angel Sister (Rosey Corner Book #1) by Ann H. Gabhart was. A good Christian story with very likeable (and a few unlikeable) characters that came together to make this book fun to read from beginning to end. It was an emotional story, especially for little Lorena who had her young life turned upside down after being left alone on church steps while her parents drove away without her. This book contained several stories which kept my attention to the end. Probably the best part, as a Christian, was how God was woven into the book to give faith, love, hope and support as He always does. This was my first book by Ann H. Gabhart but won't be my last. I highly recommend it.

This is a well written book, good enough and with enough strong story line to be made into a movie. Very interesting in its detail of the life and times of two eras running side by side. I am so impressed by the authors writing style and ability to communicate the feelings and emotions of the various characters. I hope she has other books...I will be looking.
