About the author:
In Christmas on the Sun-Up, Margaret Jane Jones writes of a way of life she herself lived as a child. In addition, she draws from her teaching experience-lively years of working with children which includes dabbling in children's theater. Her practiced hand in the field of art brings her book to life with illustrations.
Ms. Jones is a graduate of Washington State University. She lived and worked in the Middle East-Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. As a Fulbright Exchange Teacher, she taught in Yorkshire, England.
Ms. Jones has never lost her wonder of the wide and sunlight skies of cattle-country in Klickitat County, Washington, where she grew up. In summer in New Hampshire, she and her husband climb mountains and walk hidden wilderness trails with the family. In winter, she lives with her husband in Florida where wild rabbits play in the yard.
Margaret Jane Jones is an active member of the Suncoast Writers Guild.
Christmas on the Sun-Up is the sequel to Summer on the Sun-Up.

CHRISTMAS ON THE SUN-UP
Hypnotized by the swirling snow, 10-year-old Jane Eaton peers into the days of December of 1943, the days that lead to Christmas. From her perch in the hayloft of the barn on the Sun-Up, her thoughts ride far on the blowing wind. With the hard work of the ranch behind them, Jane's foresight shows the Eatons soaring into a fun-filled season.
But, she cannot see into the week before Christmas when a missing-in-action telegram from the War Department brings all hopes for Christmas to a dead stop. She does not catch a glimpse of Mother's jangled nerves or Scott's despair. She does not have a far-sighted view of their sunny home struck silent as blackened midnight.
Nor, can Jane imagine the wonder of Christmas Day after a hoped-for, but unexpected gift arrives-not in a sleigh but a black Chevrolet-on the night before Christmas.
