A Midwinter's TaleLarge Print - 2000
After graduating from high school in 1946 Chucky O'Malley joins the Army and becomes a wisecracking clerk-typist in Bamberg, Germany. The war is over, but the aftermath is a dangerous and heart-rendering time. Hunger is everywhere, the black market is booming, government agents are hunting down refugees for the ruthless Russians, and the streets are filled with human suffering. Again and again, Chucky's courage and compassion get him into scrapes. Only his trademark combination of quick wit and blind luck sees him safely out of harm's way. Except when beautiful 17-year-old Trudi needs rescuing. It's impossible for him not to fall in love. Or is it just lust? And what about Rosemarie Clancy back home?
