Father Andrew M. Greeley returns to the saga of the OMalley family with his signature blend of humor, classic North American values, and heartrending storytelling. Charles Chucky Cronin OMalley has come home to Chicago in one piece after a chaotic tour in postWWII Germany. Anxious to attend Notre Dame and get his life back in order, Chucky is quickly sidetracked by the beautiful, raven-haired, haunting (and haunted) Rosemarie, a girl as fresh-faced and clever as she is doomed. Conflicts with a mob boss and a tendency to ruffle the feathers of those in charge combine to land Chucky in even more hot water. Luckily, a quick wit and an oldfashioned sense of right and wrong (along with a dose of Heavenly help) save him when tensions reach the boiling point. Can Chucky come of age in a difficult and heady time, holding on to his integrity while discovering the secret to love? Praise for A Midwinters Tale: In this deft addition to his shelf of novels, Greeley once again shows his knack for combining solid characterizations, folksy prose, a bantamweight sense of history and understated Catholic morality to make highly entertaining fiction. ~ Publishers Weekly A richly plotted, entertaining tale. ~ Kirkus Reviews Sentimentality and nostalgia for bygone days underlie this coming-of-age story from Greeley. Fans will love it. ~ Library Journal
