About the Book
Author: Izzy James
Genre: Christian Romance
Release date: November 27, 2020
Garrett Tyler thought he was leaving Ballard House for home, secure in the knowledge that love had finally won-out for his long-time friend Olivia. He steps out the door and into the past, 1769 to be exact. While finding his bearings Garrett stumbles upon a beautiful woman being attacked. He makes sure she gets home and because of his kindness, she allows him to stay in an outbuilding—even believing his time travel story—while he figures out how he will get back to his life in the future. The more time they spend together, the deeper friendship they build, but one thing is going to rip her world apart.
Mercy Hansford is a confidant, independent woman running her own tailor shoppe. Her world is shaken when she is brutally attacked after delivering one of her sought-after shirts. The consequences of this night could be more far-reaching than either of them can guess.
Should Mercy trust a man she barely knows?

I try to read my Christmas novels in plenty of time so that readers can have the opportunity to grab one before the season begins. Garrett is A Yorktown Christmas Time Travel Novella. I love every word in the subtitle—except novella. Why? The story is so captivating that I wanted it to go on and on.
From the present to 1769, the reader travels with Garrett from the present reenacted historical town to the real thing. The questions that accompany this feat throw caution in the wake. How much can he help or alter situations? What if he changes too much? Will he be able to travel back to the present?
The fictional element of time travel draws me into the adventure. It is a favorite tool, allowing me to drift back, taking my present-day thoughts into a realistic past. Enjoy the journey. You won’t desire it to end.

Why did I write Garrett?
While I was writing Max I was working through physical therapy prior to a lumbar fusion surgery. My physical therapist’s assistant was a young man named Garrett. He was intrigued that I was a writer and asked me if I would use his name in a book one day. So I had a name.
As I finished writing Max–who came forward in time from 1769–I started thinking about what it would be like for a young person of today to find himself back in 1769.
Garrett of the book bears no resemblance to Garrett of the physical therapy office! Garrett was fun to write. I hope you will enjoy reading it.
