All I Want For Christmas: More Hours by Brenda Whiteside
The last day job I had, outside of writing, didn't understand my need to cram more into the day either. I'd still be working when my boss would tell me to go home. The work would be there tomorrow...which was exactly why I didn't want to quit.
As an author, trying to meet my deadlines with my career and family, there are never enough hours in the day. This month is National Writing Month, and although I am not taking part officially, I am joining in a Pretendo NaNoWriMo with self imposed goals. Foolish of me. Still not enough hours in the day to get it all done. I'll never learn. And the day will not get any longer for me no matter how hard I try to stretch it!
I'm already four days behind on my writing goals. But hey, I had fun this weekend vending my books at the first of the season holiday bazaars. I have several more. Maybe at one of them, someone will be selling extra time. I can hope!
World War II has ended and the soldiers are coming home. After years of following her crop worker father, motherless Claire Flanagan is also coming home. If she can keep her father in one place long enough, she plans to follow her dreams to Hollywood. Until she meets Benjamin.
Benjamin Russell has been working since he was fifteen to support his mother and siblings. What he most wants in life is to own a construction business and take care of the family his father abandoned. The last thing he expects is to fall for his younger sister’s best friend.
Life, however, throws cruel twists and turns into the path of romance. And when an unrequited love seeks revenge against Claire, and Benjamin learns his ex-girlfriend is pregnant, will lost dreams of a future together be the only thing they have left?
