A Lot Like Christmas
Twelve holiday stories, including five original to this collection.
Tech exists to open doorways into the past - but not our past, not exactly. For years, a passage has been opened to 19th-century Ohio, and a city has grown up around it to entertain time visitors. Jesse Cullum knows the passage will be closing soon. He's fallen in love with a woman from the future, and he means to follow her back, no matter whose secrets he has to expose to do it.
