Come Back to Me (Waters of Time, #1) by Jody Hedlund


The ultimate cure that could heal any disease? Crazy.

That's exactly what research scientist Marian Creighton has always believed about her father's quest, even if it does stem from a desire to save her sister Ellen from the genetic disease that stole their mother from them. But when her father falls into a coma after drinking a vial of holy water believed to contain traces of residue from the Tree of Life, Marian must question all of her assumptions. He's left behind tantalizing clues that suggest he's crossed back in time. Insane. Until Marian tests his theories and finds herself in the Middle Ages during a dangerous peasant uprising.

William Durham, a valiant knight comes to Marian's rescue and offers her protection . . . as his wife. The longer Marian stays in the past, the more she cares about William. Can she ever find her father and make it back to the present to heal her sister? And when the time comes to leave, will she want to?

Bestselling author Jody Hedlund is your guide down the twisting waters of time to a volatile era of superstition, revolts, and chivalry in this suspenseful story.



About The Author

 Jody Hedlund is the author of over thirty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award.

Jody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she's learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).

When she's not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate. 



My Review

This is a romance story but so very different, one you certainly never expected, it is also the love of ones family and willingness to give the ultimate for their survival. How do you fall in love with a man 640 years in the past? Well, the author shows us a way!

We are given a father desperate to find a cure for his daughter, and then another daughter attemps to save her father, but why are so many tying to take what they know? Danger lurks everywhere!

This book is deep in faith, and love of family, and yet historical in that we travel to the middle ages, we sure take a lot for granted!

While I sill have questions when I turned the final page, I am excited to see that there is another book to come, and with it the answers we seek.

I received this book through the Publisher Revell, and we not required to give a positive review.
