The Christmas Town by Elyse Douglas

Perfectly Charming

The Christmas Town by Elyse Douglas is a perfectly charming timeslip novel that I loved.

Travel back in time to a snow-covered Vermont in December 1943. Here we lose ourselves in a quaint, old-fashioned town that is warm and welcoming as Christmas approaches.

Elyse Douglas captures the reader’s imagination with her comprehensive descriptions as we spend a few hours immersed in the novel. Modern day gadgets are far from our minds as we settle into a simpler time.

In times of war, people pull together – but there will always be the unscrupulous black marketers who are out to make a quick buck.

All the characters were delightfully drawn. They had a charm that endeared them to the reader.

The pace of life was slower in 1943. Separated from electronic devices, characters were able to discern what or who was really important.

Christmas is a time for miracles. The veil of time is thin as we glimpse a bygone era.
