Centuries ago, by a scaffold in Manhattan, rose petals drifted gently to the ground...

...like snow on a wintry Massachusetts night. Melody Tarleton is driving home for Christmas when a man—clad in Revolutionary War-era costume—appears out of nowhere, right in the path of her car. Shaken, she takes the injured stranger in, listening with concern to Jake Mallory’s fantastic claim that he’s a Patriot soldier, sentenced to death by British authorities. The last thing he remembers is the tug of the noose.

Safe at her parents’ house, Melody concocts a story to explain the handsome holiday guest with the courtly manners, strange clothes and nasty bump on the head. Mark, her close friend who wishes he were more, is skeptical and her family is fascinated—though not half so fascinated as Melody herself. Jake is passionate, charming and utterly unlike anyone she’s ever met. Can he really be who he claims? And can a man from the distant past be the future she truly longs for?

With the aid of enchanted petals, ancient potions and the peculiar magic of the season, Melody and Jake embark on an unimaginable Christmas adventure—and discover a love that transcends time.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/19/2014

    " I really enjoyed this story! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tracey | 2/6/2014

    " I thought this book was unbelievable and a little ridiculous!! I was disappointed because the story line sounded good, but it definitely fell short for me!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kas | 2/1/2014

    " 3.75 stars. This was a really cute and easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/27/2014

    " Quick read, interesting story line, but could have been expanded to not seem so forced (because it was short as most shorter stories tend to be). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudy | 1/24/2014

    " What a great Christmas read. Totally predictable but very charming. I loved how the author connected the past with the present. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggysue | 1/21/2014

    " I thought this was a decent read, not one of this authors better works. The proof reading left something to be desired, something that should have been caught by the editor. I did however enjoy the story line. Love across time at the time of year when all things are possible "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carmela | 1/13/2014

    " This was so cheesy, I might actually be dumber for having read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie | 1/9/2014

    " Anyone who has read the Outlander books will recognize the basic plot here. Christmas Present, the American Revolution, and one or two twists keep it interesting, but just. Everybody finds his or her true love in the end and they all get to celebrate Christmas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Singleton | 12/20/2013

    " I love time travel books and Heather Graham does a good job of giving you a history lesson while she's at it! Even though you can guess what the outcome of this book is going to be, you can't put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 11/28/2013

    " 2.5 stars - just ok pretty predictable and a little too preachy for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathyred | 10/6/2013

    " Annoying heroine, unbelievable actions, and an author who obviously didn't understand the technological terms she was tossing around "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla Buchanan | 9/20/2013

    " This was a novel I received from my boyfriend's grandmother, and I could not be happier that it was given to me. The transition between time travel was brilliantly written and never felt too "sci-fi." I would definitely recommend it to others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey Lambert | 5/26/2013

    " Not my usual genre of reading, but for something light after some heavy reading, this was a great read at the holidays! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 12/13/2012

    " I really enjoyed this time travel holiday romance! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 8/11/2012

    " I save Christmas stories to read during the Season of Christmas. Heather writes such lovely stories for Christmas. This one will be read again this Season. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 6/30/2012

    " SUCH a great holiday read. Quick though. Reminded me a bit of Gabaldon's novels (alot shorter though!) Magic romance time travel aaaah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwen Gyldenege | 5/3/2012

    " Meh. Cute, but kinda like sugary candy. Good nuggets, but I actually had to turn it off a couple times cause it got so cheezy. Nice to read a feel good book though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vicky | 11/12/2011

    " I was really looking forward to reading this book. The jacket cover made it sound really good. It wasn't. It took forever for anything to progress and when it finally did, among the whining of the main character, it was very slow and annoying. I wanted to like it but just coudn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/4/2011

    " Fun, improbable but feel-good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 10/27/2011

    " Alittle corny but sweet. Just something to read on a Sunday afternoon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maryruth Endicott | 7/2/2011

    " This was a fairly compelling story but I knew how it was going to end with about 85 pages to go. I finished it but the ending was a little annoying to get through. Interesting concept but not very well written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 5/19/2011

    " Wanted to love this more than I did; the characters were great but I just didn't feel like it all hung together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 4/24/2011

    " Ugh. This was ridiculous. I get the supernatural part, but did it have to be that ridiculous? Also, Melody, the lead female, got on my nerves for the majority of the book. To the point that I started skipping her altogether. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 2/23/2011

    " this was a fun read. I love back in time themes and this was perfect with a man from the revolutionary war coming to our time and needing to get back home. it is the type of book that would make a great Hallmark Hall of fame movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 2/6/2011

    " Alittle corny but sweet. Just something to read on a Sunday afternoon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 1/12/2011

    " I liked this book because it is different than most of the books I read. While it is not a great book, I did find it interesting. I liked the time travel aspect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/12/2011

    " A nice little quick read with a happy ending of course!! "

    " I really enjoyed this story! "

    " Whne I put it up I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth (MrsGinTN) | 1/2/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. It is definitely a cute, fluffy holiday read, and that suits me just fine. The one down side is that it was slightly predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mel | 12/16/2010

    " A great book to read in the lead-up to Christmas. Really enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 12/16/2010

    " I seriously should have stopped reading this when the main character got dressed up for a Christmas party and put on her best cape. That's right. I said CAPE.

    Poorly written and predictable. A Hallmark Channel movie waiting to happen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Veronica | 12/9/2010

    " At first this story was cool because it incorporated history with modern day, but then it got really hokey and predictable. It is a fast ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emiline | 12/7/2010

    " 3.5 stars, really

    Not sure why I LOVE time-travel romance so much, but...um...I do! "
