This novel ripped the boundaries of my imagination! I don’t read many time travel books, but Jody Hedlund always captures me with her beautiful writing, so I gave it a go. She didn’t disappoint!
I lost myself in Marian’s world and delima of which world she belonged to. Totally heartfelt.
I’m devastated that the mystery wasn’t solved and hope it will be by the second book! I’m not sure I can survive this cliffhanger until January 2022, much less wait for a third book 😆. The open endinging prepares you for book two but since I’m impatient, I rate the ending 4 1/2 stars but the rest of the novel is 5 star all the way!!
Revell gave me this copy, but I was not required to provide a good report. These thoughts and opinions are my own!
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?
