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.
My Rating: 4 Stars
What a captivating and unusual read! This storyline definitely captured me from the first page and I had trouble putting it down until I finished it. What a tale of romance, mystery and adventure within a time travel tale. Time travel books are not my go-tos at all, so this one was a bit of a departure for me reading wise but I enjoyed all the facets of this immersive read and am eager for book two in the series to see what happens next!! Too bad it doesn’t releaser for months…I want it now!! I purchased the audible copy of this book and the narration was very good. A fun listen.
I received this book from the publisher and was not required to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
