Publisher's Summary

December 1943. When Zachary Flynn suggested that he and Amity Belmont enlist together, he never dreamed the recruiters would reject him because of his flat feet. Now, Amity’s off fighting the war, and he could kick himself for letting his bruised ego get in the way of telling her his true feelings. If he had, maybe Lilac’s well-meaning matchmakers wouldn’t be trying to hustle him under the mistletoe with someone other than Amity.

Sergeant Amity Belmont never should have confided her fears to anyone in her Women’s Army Corps unit. When her commanding officer gets wind of Amity’s concerns, she recommends Amity set things right at home before taking on her new assignment. Of all the people she’s disappointed, Amity is worried most about Zach. She cannot ask him to forgive something she doesn’t regret. 

Will her surprise visit to Lilac bring the Christmas miracle they both need?

Sweet Christmas story

Set during the world war, this story is about discovering one’s inner strength, doing what’s right and forgiveness. Amity defied her parents wishes and joined the Women’s Army Corp. Now she is on leave for Christmas and has returned home to make things right with her family. She didn’t plan on the resurgent feelings for her college sweetheart, who had encouraged her to enlist...and whom had failed the physical. War rations, prejudice against women serving in the military and religious folks who are against violence...all issues that are part of history and are dealt with respectfully. Sweet love story with an HEA. Enjoyable novella that is well written and narrated. I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great Read

One Lilac Christmas: A Lilac Romance Novella was a great read by Pamela Ferguson. Zachary suggested that he and Amity enlist in the military together. He never thought that the recruiters would turn him away because of his flat feet Amity is fighting in the war and Zach has always regretted not telling her how he feels. Amity's commanding officer encourages her to set things right at home before her new assignment. She visits home for Christmas and hopes for a miracle. I really enjoyed reading Zach and Amity's story and can't wait to read more by Pamela Ferguson.

World War II and It’s I,pact on Gender Roles and Love

Pamela Ferguson writes WW II stories providing the reader with a feeling how marriages, family dynamics and separation effected people. The ideas of what a man or woman’s roles are...how difficult it could be to adjust and have faith in oneself. This story looks at a young woman coming home on leave (she’s a WAC) and how her father and mother reacted to her being in the army...her brother who wishes to be a conscientious objector..and after 2 years seeing her college sweetheart with whom has suggested they enlist together, but he was 4F and remained teaching in their home town Interesting and wonderful storytelling to make you feel what it would have been like in the 1940s. A sold narrator with good tone, pace and delivery I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.

A boost of holiday spirit!

This novella is the perfect listen to start to get into the holiday spirit! Amity and Zach enlist in the army together. They have plans, but because of flat feet, Zach is sent home. Now the two are separated, never having told the other how they really feel. Amity comes home to sort things out before her next assignment. Will their pride continue to get in their way? I love this book because it's Christmas, but also because it features a strong, woman soldier! We don't get to see much of this for the time period it's written for and it's refreshing. It does let us delve into family and expectations, as well as mend fences. I enjoyed this short WWII piece and as always will be watching for more by Pamela Ferguson. Stephanie Dillard gives a wonderfully warm performance with her portrayal of the story. Her character voices are genuine and she has a good pace. Her narration is very enjoyable.
