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.

About the author

Biography of Creel, Ann Howard

Ann Howard Creel was born on July 24, 1953. By the age of ten she was writing daily in a diary, and by the age of twelve she had written a novel. She attended the University of Texas, received a degree in nursing, and became a Registered Nurse. After moving to California in 1985 she went back to school and earned a Master's degree. She loved her nursing career, but the urge to write never left her, so she began to write again at night after work when she moved to Colorado.

She took two creative writing courses in Durango, Colorado and then wrote her first novel, Water at the Blue Earth. She still works as a school nurse in the Denver area and writes part-time. Her titles include A Ceiling of Stars, Call Me the Canyon, and The Magic of the Ordinary Days.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book The Magic of Ordinary Days has been a favorite Hallmark movie of mine for years so when I ran across the book I had to buy it. Of course the book is more in depth than the movie and I'm enjoying every page. It's difficult to put it down. If you like the movie, you'll love the book. 09/22/2013
