Everything she loved could so easily be lost.

The end of World War II should have brought joy to Gwen Mullen. But on V-J Day, her worst fear is realized. As celebrating crowds gather in Times Square, a soldier appears on her doorstep to claim Mary, the baby abandoned to Gwen one year earlier. Suddenly Gwen is on the verge of losing the child she has nurtured and loves dearly.

With no legal claim to Mary, Gwen begins to teach Lieutenant John McKee how to care for his child, knowing that he will ultimately take Mary away. What starts as a contentious relationship, however, turns into something more, and Gwen must open her heart to learn that love means taking chances.

While You Were Mine paints a vivid portrait of 1940s New York and tells an enchanting tale of the nature of love and trust.

Ann Howard Creel was born in Austin, Texas, and worked as a registered nurse before becoming a full-time writer.

Review:

“Moving, beautifully written, and life-affirming. A powerful story that had me gripped from the very first page.” —Lindsay Jayne Ashford, author of The Color of Secrets

“A fascinating story set in an often overlooked time period. Ann Creel paints a beautiful picture of post-war New York City, and the tumult and pain the war caused.” —Eoin Dempsey, author of Finding Rebecca

Praise for The Magic of Ordinary Days:

“A gentle but powerful novel, combining a story of bittersweet love with a poignant account of the journey toward self-realization and acceptance.” BookPage

“[Ann Howard Creel’s] debut novel blends historical richness and a fine sense of place...A light, precisely observed novel.” Kirkus Reviews
