Description
With his unique blend of humor, Irish-American charm, and solid family values, Father Andrew M. Greeley continues to attract a new generation of readers and delight his legion of loyal fans. A Midwinter's Tale is the charming story of Charles Cronin's coming of age on the West Side of Chicago and post-war Germany.The Second World War is over, but in Germany, the aftermath is a dangerous and heart-rending time: the black market is booming, government agents hunt down suspected war criminals and refugees for ruthless Russians, and everywhere the streets are filled with human suffering.Charles Chucky Cronin is a short, wisecracking clerk typist with flaming red hair in the First Constabulary Regiment in Bamberg. All Chucky wants out of life is to go to his beloved Notre Dame, become an accountant, and have a nice orderly life, but the Deity seems to have other plans for him. Again and again his courage and compassion get him into impossible scrapes; with black marketeers, border patrols, his commanding officer, and the U.S. Army; and only his trademark combination of quick wit and blind luck (and maybe a little Heavenly intervention) see him safely out of harms way. He may yet make it back home to a certain Rosemary Clancy in one piece after all, and wouldn't that be grand, don't ya know?
