Christmas Presents and Past book. Janice grad Janice Kay Johnson is the author of over a hundred books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own. These were "sweet" romance novels, the author hastens to add; she isn't sure they'd have felt comfortable coauthoring passionate love scenes!

It all started with a Christmas gift....

Will and Dinah have weathered through some tough times together. Who would have thought that their first date and a Christmas present would have set the stage for such a long lasting love? Every year, Will and Dinah give each other a meaningful gift, not necessarily expensive, but one symbolic of the love and faith they have in each other. Years pass and tragedy strikes. Will their love and Christmas presents be enough to mend the wounds?

Janice Kay Johnson takes readers through the years as we see the love between Will and Dinah grow and flourish. From their days during the turbulent Vietnam years to the current day, Will and Dinah face adversity only to see their bond emerge stronger than ever each time. I have only read about the Vietnam War in books but Janice Kay Johnson puts a face to the soldiers of that time. CHRISTMAS PRESENTS AND PAST particularly hits home now with the current political climate as Janice Kay Johnson paints a vivid picture of the effects of war on relationships.

Janice Kay Johnson doesn't shy away from addressing sensitive topics. Her focus on war and its effects isn't a political one by any means. Rather, she points the reader in the direction of the human side of war, both those who are fighting and those left behind. CHRISTMAS PRESENTS AND PAST offers some tear jerker moments, as Janice Kay Johnson sets the stage for one of the most poignant endings ever.

In 1968, teens Will and Dinah went out on a date in which he brought her a Christmas present that showed he believed she could make it as a chef; something her family felt was foolish. Whether he was serving in Viet Nam or she spending a summer in Paris, they exchanged holiday presents. Even when they temporarily broke up they exchanged gifts.

Will the builder and Dinah the chef married and raised three children while each year they continued their custom of exchanging presents that symbolized their everlasting love for one another. That is until a tragic car accident ends their relationship and threatens their loving ritual or does it?

This is an interesting relationship drama that when Janice Kay Johnson covers the past feels nostalgic but lacks ardor; when the story line turns to the present following the tragedy, the emotions explode. Once the switch occurs, the plot becomes powerfully angst-laden filled with passion, much of which is negative. Readers will appreciate the gift giving tradition and the deep feelings between the loving couple once Christmas present occurs as this may be the year that the couple fails to exchange gifts as they have done for almost four decades.

Most of the synopses on the backs of Harlequin books are misleading, making the story sound more intriguing than it actually is, and yet I still found this book enjoyable. It started off weak, and I was disappointed in the heroine because she acted like being a virgin was something to be ashamed of. Was this typical thinking, even for a teenage girl back in the late 1960's? Yet, I still liked Dinah, even though she became an anti-war demonstrator, but she didn't spit on the soldiers. However, activists like Dinah were the exception and not the rule. Most were going on about how the soldiers were bayoneting babies, but yet they probably believed in abortion. Such extremist hypocrites (kinda like the PETA people).

Another thing I didn't like, but was typical of the turbulent times was the fact that Will and Dinah lived together before they married, Dinah saying, "...everybody is doing it." Gee, that's not a very good reason. Dinah's reasoning just didn't sound very mature at times. However, I was heartened that they actually did marry (and didn't just call each other their fiancé for twenty years like people do today, and have babies out of wedlock).
When Dinah conceived her third child, who was unplanned, I was so afraid she was going to have an abortion, but she didn't even for once consider such a thing, that, and the fact that both Will and Dinah (even though they separated for awhile) remained faithful to their marriage vows made this one of the better EL books.
