Publisher's Summary

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.

It had great potential...

Would you try another book from Wendy Markham and/or Justine Eyre?

No.

What could Wendy Markham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The book was slow getting into it and then I found the sexual content too graphic.

What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

Her voice drove me crazy. She has an angry sound, like she's reading through gritted teeth. I found the characters whiny and annoying when I was listening, so I switched to reading.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was a little bored at the beginning...I was annoyed by the characters when I was listening, and I was disappointed by the sex scene. It was out of place, especially in 1941.

Good story, a narrator I'll avoid

The story was exceptionally good (5 stars), but I had to get my teeth to listen to it. The narrator's voice is very whiny and hard to listen to. This is not the first book I've listened to that she has narrated, but I will actively avoid her in the future. The character's voices are okay but the third person narration is annoying. The narration in its own would have received three stars.

No story+bad narrator=no go

I have read many time travel novels so the concept was n of new to me. This was executed so poorly that the outcomes and steps are not realistic even for someone that is ready and prepared to suspend belief. We are expected to believe that she can change so quickly. Do not do it. Walk away.

What makes matters worse is the narrator. She sounds like she had a bad case of laryngitis.
