ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
I often play the what if games and traveling back in time is one I enjoy doing. I never wonder about the future because that can be kinda scary. The past is what makes us who we are. This book fit into my imagination just right. This is why I love this author. I love how she can make my imagination come alive with her stories and the many awesome characters. The plot was great! I liked the way Hedlund has added a little bit of everything so it keeps the reader's interest. Pardon me but there were some scenes that I skipped over because I didn't care for those type. Another reason I love Hedlund's books is that she adds just the right element of faith throughout her novels. This one included. This one will also be added to my keeper shelf! I highly recommend! My thanks to Revell Publishing for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
