One Lilac Christmas
A World War II Historical Novella
Corporal Irene Belmont hasn’t seen her father since his failed attempt to prevent her from enlisting in the Women’s Army Corps. No daughter of his would be a soldier! Now, he’s ordering Irene’s younger brother to ignore his pacifist beliefs and enlist the day after Christmas. Can Irene convince her former boyfriend, high school teacher Zac Flynn, to help her brother once her holiday visit is over?
When Zac suggested that he and Irene enlist in the army, he never dreamed the recruiters would accept her and reject him. Now, his students complain he’s too strict, and Lilac residents protest he’s stingy about distributing gasoline ration books. There’s a war being fought in Europe and the Pacific—and in Zac’s heart. Will Irene’s surprise visit bring the Christmas miracle they both need?
