A Midwinter's Tail is the fourth book in Bethany Blakes Lucky Paws Pet Sitting Mystery series. The storyline is well plotted, and the characters are well developed.

  A Midwinter's Tale is the first book in the Family Saga series Stationed in Bamberg, Germany, in the chaotic aftermath of WWII, pint-sized Charles "Chucky" Cronin O'Malley can't seem to keep himself out of harm's : Tom Doherty Associates. Whether or not Branagh intended it this way, "A Midwinter's Tale" is a glorious valentine to those of us amateurs who have trod the boards and dreamed of glory but have ultimately settled for the smaller pleasures that life freely grants. Bravo, Branagh and company!/5(83). After the success he achieved with Dead Again and Much Ado About Nothing was followed by the ego-driven disappointment Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Kenneth Branagh regrouped with A Midwinter's Tale, the story of a ragged acting troupe brought together by an out-of-work actor for a Christmas production of Hamlet. Following the line that simpler is better, Branagh keeps everything very low-key, even Brand: Warner Archives.   A Midwinter's Tale is the beginning of a new series for Andrew Greeley, and the main character, Chucky O'Malley is one of his best ever! Chucky literally comes of age during the Depression and WWII, and his growing up in an Irish Catholic famiy in Chicago is a fine tale indeed.5/5(5).
