Angel Sister

By Ann H. Gabhart


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 any problems, 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?

This richly textured novel 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

Book Takeaway:

I would like readers to embrace the Merritt family and rejoice in their victories as they strive to overcome their problems. I want them to see the power of love and forgiveness.

Why the author wrote this book:

My mother and her sisters liked to tell stories about growing up during the 1930s and all the fun they had even in those Great Depression years. They lived in a small community that seemed to have more than its share of odd characters. Those stories along with a couple of the odd characters stuck in my head and became the germ of an idea for a story of love, forgiveness and new hope. While the Merritt family and what happens to them is fiction, yet in many ways Angel Sister is my mother's story too and the story of many families who manage to grow stronger during hard times.
