Actress Clara McCallum isn't looking forward to spending Christmas alone in New York—especially since she's still reeling after a diagnosis of breast cancer. But she has to be on location in the city for her next big movie. She's playing a woman in love with Jed Landry—an American soldier who's doomed to die at Pearl Harbor...
Imagine Clara's astonishment when she steps off an old- fashioned locomotive from the set and finds herself whisked back in time—and into the arms of the real-life Jed. She's convinced it's some sort of hallucination brought on by her diagnosis. But before long she finds herself swept away by this handsome soldier, and wondering if maybe her plunge into the past could change the course of the future—and turn out to be the best Christmas present ever...
