Can you imagine planning on visiting your family and finding yourself in another era. The Christmas Town, by Elyse Douglas, is a new time travel, mystery, romance novel that was released on October 5, 2013. Sounds interesting right. Wel read the brief summary about it.
While traveling home for Christmas, Jackie and Megan, two young women in their 20s, encounter a huge snowstorm. After crossing a covered bridge, they suddenly find themselves stuck in the past in a small picturesque Vermont town in 1943. While struggling to return to their time, they fall in love with two handsome soldiers. As Christmas approaches, Megan and Jackie are torn between their new lovers and their desire to return to their time. At the last moment, they must make the difficult decision and, because it is Christmas, a miracle happens.
First let me say how much I loved this book. Jackie and Megan were two young women who were so caught up on themselves, that they did not think about what was going on around them. They also relied alot on their electronic devices to get through their lives. When they are transported into another era, they learn what is really important in life and it better to learn to rely on yourselves than devices. I loved how both of these women were so different but they end up as friends after this trip. They learn that they are not so different after all. They also learn to respect what happens in the past and look to toward the future.
This book is quick read and such a cool book to show how people celebrate in a simpler time. It is what we all need to go back to. It is a cool novel mixed with humor and romance. It’s a great read any time of the year, but it’s an especially cozy read during the winter months around Christmas.
