9780143119951: The Magic of Ordinary Days: A Novel

The powerful story of one woman's passion in a world at war.

Olivia Dunne, a studious minister's daughter who dreams of becoming an archaeologist, never thought that the drama of World War II would affect her quiet life in Denver. But when an exhilarating flirtation reshapes her life, she finds herself in a rural Colorado outpost, married to a man she hardly knows. Overwhelmed by loneliness, Olivia tentatively tries to establish a new life, finding muchneeded friendship and solace in two Japanese American sisters who are living at a nearby internment camp. When Olivia unwittingly becomes an accomplice to a crime and is faced with betrayal, she finally confronts her own yearnings and comes to understand what she truly believes about the nature of trust and love.

From the Back Cover:

"Ann Howard Creel explores the effects of mistaken and offered love in rural Colorado in the 1940's where World War II, though seemingly distant, reaches deeply into the lives of the innocent and the misled. Rich in reminiscence, The Magic of Ordinary Days treats imperfect humanity with respect, tenderness and understanding, qualities which mature in the characters into the finest of loves. A highly satisfying read." (Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue)

About the Author:

Ann Howard Creel is the author of two award-winning young adult novels, Water at the Blue Earth and A Ceiling of Stars.
