Charlene needs a miracle to escape her abusive husband. Will traveling one hundred years in the past be far enough?
In Time for Christmas is a haunting tale of love and hope set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century Colorado. Reminiscent of Somewhere in Time and The Two Worlds of Jenny Logan, this Christmas story will come back to you time and again.
Charlene Williams is a woman trapped in a dangerously violent marriage. When husband Dale discovers her innocent chats with the mailman, he flies into a jealous rage and whisks her out of town to his family's ranch--an isolated, dilapidated place no one has lived on for years. With the promise that he'll be back in a few days, he knocks Charlene unconscious and leaves. She wakes up on the ranch--a hundred years in the past. Almost instantly she is drawn to Billy Page, Dale's great grandfather. The connection is powerful and mysterious, but should she risk falling in love ... with a ghost?
She'll learn one thing for certain: God is in control of the very fabric of time. AMAZON 4.5 STARS
I really liked it, it felt so much more than just a novella. It was packed full of emotion and danger and hope. Great M.C.'s and Billy's grandmother was a great addition too. Dale was one piece of evil work just as the book blurb said. I know a reviewer had a problem with the fact that Charlene was a married woman following through on the attraction to another man. If I read it right, there was a question about her even really being legally married. Still, it wasn't something that Charlene or anyone else but Dale knew.
The book kept my attention and before I knew it, things were coming to a conclusion. I think that it was more about how well the book kept my involved. And not so much about how many pages were involved. Was the book real deep? No. Did I really enjoy it? Yes.
