The Important Role of Minor Characters

by Donna Huber

Minor characters are often overlooked or just given a cursory mention in reviews - "the secondary characters supported the main characters well". However, they often play a crucial role in plot and/or main character development.

Review: Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb #TLCBookTours and #LastChristmasInParis

by Susan Roberts

In August, 1914, England was at war and many men joined up to fight the Germans in a war that they believed would be over by Christmas.  Left behind in England were the families of the soldiers who were proud of their men for going off to war.  Four years later, the war still raged on and instead of joy and hope, the families in England and the soldiers themselves were full of despair and depression.  Last Christmas in Paris provides an up close look at the families and the soldiers during this 'war to end all wars'.
