Overview

Actress Clara McCallum just got her big break. She’s thrilled about landing the lead role in a big WWII film. But her dream-come-true excitement is short-lived. She’s just received devastating news and has been reeling ever since. The last thing Clara wants is to spend Christmas alone in New York City, but she’s determined to stay on location for the movie. Anything for her craft, right? Which is perfect since she’s playing a woman who’ll do anything for the love of doomed soldier Jed Landry.

But Clara’s resolve turns to astonishment when she steps off an old-fashioned locomotive from the set and finds herself whisked back in time—and into the arms of the real-life Jed. She’s convinced it’s some sort of hallucination. But before long she finds herself swept away by the handsome soldier and wondering if her plunge into the past could change the course of the future...and turn out to be the best Christmas present ever.

Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Wendy Markham delivers an engaging, cinematic time-travel romance set in two places and time periods -- New York's Westchester County just before Christmas in 1941, and present-day Manhattan. We meet the principal characters separately. Jed Landry is a bright and honorable young man who takes over his family -- and the family business -- after his father's death. Clara McCallum is a 30-year-old actress who is about to get her first starring movie role, playing the fictional wartime bride of a young man killed in the Normandy invasion. His name: Jed Landry! Clara is dealing with a real-life drama of her own -- a diagnosis of breast cancer -- but she goes to the town in Westchester to begin filming, only to hit her head on the train and arrive 65 years earlier. There are some nice touches to Jed and Clara's meeting -- he's puzzled over her iPod (is she a wartime spy with a special transmitter?). She finds out later, via the Internet, that he is meant to die. Once their romance kicks off with one perfect night and she finds her way back to 1941, how can she save him from his fate?

In New York City, Dr. Swensen informs Clara McCallum that she has breast cancer the shook up actress wants to go home, but knows she must remain in the City to film a movie while also beginning treatment. Her film role calls for her to be in love with a real American hero, Jed Landry of Westchester County who died in Normandy. On the set, Clara rides an early twentieth century train, but when she gets off something is not right. Instead of being on a movie set, she is somehow in 1941 New York seeing the real Jed. Both are stunned by their love at first sight attraction, but by morning she returns to Manhattan to start the cancer treatment. As each think about the other, both wonder how to get back into each other¿s arms. --- This is an excellent time travel romance because the likable lead pair seems real as they spend plenty of time separately in different eras resolving personal issues and trying to figure out a way to get back with their beloved. The story line is driven by Clara and Jed though more her than him. Fans will appreciate this superb tale as Jed struggles with IPods playing I¿ll Be Home for Christmas, just which era remains the question. --- Harriet Klausner
