"excellent time travel romance"
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
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.
