9780996755818: The Reason for Time

Whole minutes passed when I didn’t think of my man and the swimming lesson set up for the next day, if no one was murdered before then, or the cars stopped, or a bomb go off somewhere... On a hot, humid Monday afternoon in July 1919, Maeve Curragh watches as a blimp plunges from the sky and smashes into a downtown Chicago bank building. It is the first of ten extraordinary days in Chicago history that will forever change the course of her life. Racial tensions mount as soldiers return from the battlefields of Europe and the Great Migration brings new faces to the city, culminating in violent race riots. Each day the young Irish immigrant, a catalogue order clerk for the Chicago Magic Company, devours the news of a metropolis where cultural pressures are every bit as febrile as the weather. But her interest in the headlines wanes when she catches the eye of a charming streetcar conductor. Maeve’s singular voice captures the spirit of a young woman living through one of Chicago’s most turbulent periods. Seamlessly blending fact with fiction, Mary Burns weaves an evocative tale of how an ordinary life can become inextricably linked with history.

About the Author:

A former journalist and documentary filmmaker, Mary Burns is the author of four novels, two short-story collections, a non-fiction book about snow geese, and several radio and stage plays. She grew up near Chicago and now lives just north of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. For more information, visit her website, www.maryburns.ca

Review:

".. the story is both fevered and thoughtful as the days unfold, a well-paced work that ebbs and flows with just the right amount of tension."chicagoreviewofbooks.wordpress.com/2016/04/29/a-week-in-a-life-forever-changed/

"Burns plunges the reader into the world of Chicago in 1919. Her flawless use of Irish brogue in Maeve's first-person voice pulls us ever deeper into the events...An amazing tale from a master of her craft." (Editors' Choice selection)--Historical Novels Review

"An engaging work of historical fiction" --Foreword Reviews

"...the real strength of the book is in the consistent and believable voice of the young Maeve..."
