Bentonsport: A Christmas Story by Lisa Schnedler

An Unexpected Gift

Bentonsport: A Christmas Story by Lisa Schnedler is most delightful Christian timeslip novel that enchanted me from the start.

The plotline is a magical one, perfectly suited to the snowy setting. Christmas is a time of year for miracles. Our God is the God of the miraculous.

Bentonsport: A Christmas Story is just right for the lead up to Christmas. It will warm your heart and soul and leave you smiling.

All the characters are warm and welcoming. Bentonsport has a wonderful community spirit. People arrive as strangers and leave as friends. Needs are met as people pull together.

History is important. We need to know about the past in order to know where we are going in future.

We can be surrounded by people but still feel lonely. We all need that one person we can spend our lives with.

Modern technology is great but sometimes those gadgets from the past are more reliable.

When the future looks uncertain, we know that we can trust God to guide us in the darkness. We need to step out in faith and put our hand into the hand of God.

Bentonsport: A Christmas Story was absolutely charming. It is a tale of love and trust, of life and light. It is a beautiful Christmas story that might just have you believing in miracles.

What if you found the love of your life right in your hometown—in another century? Bentonsport—two different eras in one special town, two lonely persons, and one miraculous Christmas…

For Bentonsport Academy Headmaster Thomas Barton, Christmas emphasizes his loneliness. He has given up hope of discovering a woman to share his heart and life and plans to return to his hometown for the holidays. But when his friend’s preposterous prophecy comes true, he finds himself having traveled not by train, but through time, from 1869, to Bentonsport today! Now he must navigate a modern world for the two weeks before Christmas and discover what he was sent to find.

Baker Sarah Peterson has everything she wants in the small historic town of modern-day Bentonsport—everything but a man with whom to share her dreams and future. And, in a town of under fifty residents, where’s she going to encounter a soulmate? But when Thomas walks into her bakery, seemingly odd and out of place, but handsome and charming, she finds herself hoping something special might happen this Christmas.
