On My Kindle - Angel Sister by Ann H. Gabhart
Kate Reece Merritt takes care of everyone: her sisters, her mother, and even her father. Yet when the young teen finds an abandoned child on the church steps, her caregiving moves to a whole new level. Little Lorena Birdsong adores Kate and believes she's an angel.
I loved this sweet story! Ann H. Gabhart captures every nuance in the complicated relationships between family members and townspeople. Her characters draw you in and capture your heart.
If you gravitate toward character-driven fiction, you'll find much satisfaction in this novel. I'm glad I picked up Angel Sister and discovered another author to add to my favorites list.
Writers: Have you written children into your novel? What are some of the steps you take to make them authentic?
Readers: Do you like books that delve into the hearts and minds of characters or do you find them tedious? Why?
Have a blessed weekend, and Happy Birthday to my dear Mom!
