  • The Object of His Affection By Marcia Lynn McClure It was cold so miserably cold Athena knew by the numbness in her own fingers and toes that Annabel s, Marta s, and Bronwen s must be frozen stiff Yet she hoped that their merriment in singing Christmas carols on the doorsteps or in the parlors of those who opened their doors or invited them inside for a moment would offset their discomfort After all, a happy heart warmeIt was cold so miserably cold Athena knew by the numbness in her own fingers and toes that Annabel s, Marta s, and Bronwen s must be frozen stiff Yet she hoped that their merriment in singing Christmas carols on the doorsteps or in the parlors of those who opened their doors or invited them inside for a moment would offset their discomfort After all, a happy heart warmed many a frigid soul, as well as ice cold appendages.As a child, Athena had adored caroling It was with warm fondness that she thought back on all those Christmas seasons of the past when her entire family would carol to their neighbors Always her mother had made puddings, cakes, and other sweet treats to bring with them, to give as gifts of affection to their kind townsfolk and friends And once the caroling was at an end, the Monroe family Athena s father, mother, and sisters Annabel, Marta, and Bronwen would return to their own home to sit before the fire and enjoy roasted chestnuts and wassail.But this Christmas season the season that had always been bright and shining, the season that had always been to Athena a time to consider others, to give and serve this Christmas season was stark in opposition Never had Athena imagined that she would find herself in such dire, desperate circumstances as she did then As she followed her younger sisters to the next door on the row of lovely houses houses so similar to the one in which she and her sisters had spent only the very last Christmas season she hoped that the next kind family to open the door might offer her sisters and herself as well a token of goodwill a warm mug of wassail, a small butter biscuit, anything for their stomachs

    About "Marcia Lynn McClure"

    1. Marcia Lynn McClure

      Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Marcia Lynn McClure grew up influenced by the reminiscent stories of rugged, rural Colorado farm life fascinatingly recounted to her by her parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts tales of runaway buckboards, mule drawn plows and dust pneumonia verbalized images of stream flooded meadows, frozen over in winter, where a child could peer through the crystal clear ice in wonder at the small fish, snakes and mice sealed in the meadow grasses beneath stories of hardship and tragedy, love and loss But always the stories, and the people telling them, bore evidence of the wonder and worthiness of simpler, yet sometimes brutal, times.These influential people and the family legends they detailed, coupled with her own life experiences and utterly romantic nature, led Marcia to begin writing novels as Christmas gifts for her closest friends friends who long for a breath of the past and miss the romance of bygone eras friends searching for moments of distraction from the stressful, demanding times we live in.And so, knowing that it is the breath of the past and the take me in you arms and kiss me kind of moments that so many women long to relive, Marcia spins her tales of love, life and laughter adventures woven around those compelling, romantic instances that most appeal to a woman s loving heart Marcia feels that if her readers close one of her books with a contented sigh and a delighted smile, feeling rejuvenated, cheerful and edified, then she has achieved what she set out to do shower refreshment and happiness on anyone having experienced the story.Marcia lives in Rio Rancho, New Mexico There she writes her stories surrounded by her beloved friends and familyd the beautiful desert landscape of New Mexico

    5.
