Elyse Douglas - The Christmas Eve Letter - Virtual Book Tour

Time Travel Romance/Women’s Fiction

Date Published: September 15, 2016


Synopsis: 30-year-old Eve Sharland is browsing a Pennsylvania antiques store when she discovers an old brass lantern tucked away on a shelf.  It attracts her.   She picks it up and sees something behind one of the sooty glass panes.  She gently lifts it and, to her surprise, she finds an unopened letter stuck inside.

The letter is postmarked December 24, 1885, and it is addressed to Evelyn Sharland in New York City.  Eve gasps and drops the letter.  That’s her name!  The letter is addressed to someone with the same name in 1885: Evelyn Sharland. 

Eve promptly purchases the lantern and the letter, and returns to her New York City apartment.  Later that evening, she carefully opens the letter and reads it, astounded by its contents.  She stares at the lantern in wonder and alarm, deeply moved by the story of a tragic romance.

A few days later, following a request in the letter, Eve cautiously lights the lantern.  To her utter shock, she finds herself in the past—in 1885 New York City.  Eve is thrown into a life far beyond what she could have ever imagined, as she gets involved with one of the richest families in New York City, and meets the handsome Patrick Gantly.  She must struggle to survive and return to her own time, even as her destiny is changed forever.
