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.

Through this families struggles we learn how the American people sacrificed and worked together to do their part in the war. Food stamps, shortages, and filling the shoes of those who were far away are all made clear. We also understand the differences between life of their time and today. The lack of electricity and its effect on everday life was clearly expressed.
As the family goes through the events at the ranch, from Jane's tragic lip accident, their preparations for the Christmas holiday and the tension of Scott's dad missing in action you are drawn into their world and begin to cheer their successes. The authors charming illustrations add a lot to the story and help the younger reader visualize what they are reading.
This book would be good historical fiction for middle-schoolers and would give them a feel for life in another time.
