Seven Tales of Love

 

image

Seven brief tales depict various expressions of love—unwanted, unrequited, passionate, enduring—from the bright beginnings of youth, through the doubts and changes of middle age, to the comfort and familiarity of old age.

The Dreams of Youth

These five interrelated pieces tell the story of Maggie, a unique individual who is Everywoman—daughter, dreamer, nurse, friend, wife, mother. Spanning eighty-five years, they follow her from Depression-era Illinois to 1940s Hollywood, coastal California, and back to the rural Midwest. Bittersweet and poignant, celebratory and inspiring, these stories deal with the exuberance and romance of youth, the delight of friendship, the adventure of going forth into the world, and the disappointment and heartache that are part of life.

Or is he the reason behind her increasingly disturbing dreams?

The Christmastime Series

Christmastime 1940: A Love Story

A tale of transformation involving a struggling single mom who is trying to make a fresh start in life and a man who has lost his connection to humanity. The curmudgeonly Charles Drooms is content with his life as the owner of a successful accounting firm. However, his narrow world is suddenly shaken up when the beautiful widow Lillian Hapsey and her two young sons move down the hall from him. The converging forces of the Christmas season, the presence of the widow, and the mysterious appearance of a little boy serve to stir up memories from Drooms’s boyhood, and ultimately force him to make a life-altering decision that will affect them all.

Christmastime 1943: A Love Story

Though the war intensifies, the Christmas season arrives, and love is kept alive on the home front. In New York City, Lillian Drooms struggles on her own while her husband, Charles, is away at sea. She volunteers with Artists for Victory at a hospital for wounded soldiers, but she soon begins to doubt her ability. Meanwhile, on a farm in Illinois, 17 year old Ursula, a beauty who dreams of life beyond the farm, is torn between her sense of duty and the power of love. She finds the source of her deepest yearning and her deepest hatred in Friedrich, one of the German POWs recently hired to work on their farm. The Christmas season brings its charm and warmth – but can love survive in these turbulent, fragmented times?

Christmastime 1944: A Love Story

Years of relentless fighting have strained the country, and the December news of the Battle of the Bulge crushes the hope that war in Europe will soon be over. Lillian Drooms pushes ahead with her career as an artist while she anxiously awaits the arrival of her, husband, Charles for Christmas, and her friend, Izzy, finally gives Mr. Rockwell the heave-ho – or does she? And on the farm in Illinois, Ursula’s troubling situation reaches a climax and is intensified by the arrival of her brother Jimmy, home on furlough from the Pacific. Among pervasive loss and disappointment, is there room for Christmas hope and happiness?
