Angel Sister, by Ann H. Gabhart. Kate is the middle child, she's also the child holding the family together. Living through the depression gets to anyone, for Kate's father it leads him to alcoholism! Kate's younger sister seems oblivious to the problems in their home which is a small comfort to Kate.
While on her way to drop some stuff off for her grandfather kate comes across a small child who's been abandoned by her parents. Not because she was not wanted, but because they knew they couldn't provide for her with the economy in the shape it was in. So they left her at the church with the hopes and prayers that a good family would find her and take her in. Little does Kate know that this sad little girl found on the church steps would change her life and her community!
This is the first book I've read from Ann Gabhart, and I have to say it was fantastic. It is such a touching story! it is well written and keeps you hanging on to the book till the last page. I don't know how many times I thought "I need to put this book down and get some other work done, but just one more page" which turned into more and more pages until I got through the rest of the book!! This is a great book and I look forward to reading more books from Ann Gabhart. It is a book that I highly recommend to any "book nerd" out there. a great story!!
