Christmastime 1939-1945

Enjoyed very much!! Usually WW II historical novels take place in Europe, so was good to read about how it affected those in the USA.

"Linda Makovec has a wonderful way of describing the importance of family, friends and neighbors working together, and trying to stay positive. The author also mentions the importance of communication, love, hope and faith."  —Reader Reviewer

In Christmastime 1942 the Axis forces are winning, and America struggles to find its footing in the war. Men leave to fight and women join the workforce. New York City vibrates with energy, romance, tension, and urgency. Yet love burns brighter than ever, bringing people together and giving them hope for the future. The famous Stage Door Canteen in Times Square provides the background for one of these romancesbetween the proud, but wounded, Edith Mason and the Shakespearean actor, Desmond Burke.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Linda Mahkovec is the author of The Christmastime Series (7 books) set predominantly in New York City during the World War II years. She also has two collections of short stories, The Dreams of Youth and Seven Tales of Love, and a contemporary novel set in Seattle, The Garden House.

Themes of love, family, and home dominate her stories, and though they may be set against the backdrop of war or deal with the disappointments in life, the overarching feel is uplifting and hopeful. Threads that run through her work are the search for beauty and meaning, and the artistic female character—whether she is a painter, a gardener, or simply someone who lives creatively and seeks connection.

Mahkovec was born and raised in a small town in Illinois. She then spent several years in the San Francisco Bay area and Seattle, and for the past thirty years has lived in New York City. She has a PhD in English, specializing in Victorian literature. She has previously published as Agnes Irene.
