Lindas Book Obsession reviews “Christmastime 1939:Prequel to the Christmastime Series” by Linda Mahkovec
What a wonderful, delightful, entertaining treat to back-track and enter the “Christmastime” 1939 :Prequel to the Christmastime Series” by Linda Mahkovec . I enjoyed visiting Lillian Hapsey and her two young sons, who are now living in Brooklyn.The Genres for this book are Fiction, Historical Fiction, and Women’s Fiction. The timeline for this story is just before World War Two, when Hitler is in Europe. There is talk of whether there should be United States involvement.
This year Lillian is determined to somehow give her sons Tommy and Gabriel a wonderful Merry Christmas. This is the first Christmas that Lillian won’t be with her sister. Despite problems and obstacles, is it possible for the family to have a wonderful holiday? Can Lillian’s dreams come true? I was so disappointed when the story ended, since I wanted more. The author vividly describes the scenery and food. I had to remember for a minute that it wasn’t December. I would highly recommend this heart-warming, emotional story for those readers who enjoy family stories, have dreams and hopes.
