Bentonsport - A Christmas Story

Title: Bentonsport – A Christmas Story

Author: Lisa Schnedler

Publisher: Scrivenings Press

Release Date: September 27, 2022

Genre: Clean Romance/Christmas/Time Travel

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.

The man had an eager expression, no trace of fear or concern. His eyes held an extra
twinkle as a growing smile crinkled his face. “I have great news.”

Great news? At three in the morning? Thomas tried to think of a response.

“Do you believe some things cannot be explained?”

I feel that way right now. He nodded.

“Do you believe in miracles?”

How was he supposed to answer? Particularly to a minister. At three in the morning. The
pastor better get to the point. Thomas slumped into the chair.

The ticking of the clock seemed to grow louder.

Pastor Lockhardt rubbed his hands together, scooting his chair closer. “Sometimes, we
can’t understand things with our minds. We can only believe with our hearts.”

Again, Thomas nodded, the words little more than a buzz. Why such an abstract
conversation in the middle of the night?
