 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. (Goodreads)




My Thoughts

Jody Hedlund once again writes a fantastic novel. I like time travel story ideas and I was so excited to hear she wrote such a book.

I will say that this story had a lot more romance in it than I was expecting. I do think instead of this just being fiction it needs to also be labeled romance so people are aware when they pick it up.

Hedlund always keeps her books clean but the love story is pretty much the entire plot of this book. All that being said I completely loved this book for the history, the time travel, the love story, and the well-developed characters. There are some plot holes that hopefully will be brought up again in the next book (can’t wait!) but I thought the time travel idea was so well done! It is a fun unique twist and yes, it did remind me slightly of Outlander but this is it's own story for sure. The leading man in this book, Will, is such a great character and I loved getting to read the different parts of his personality. 

Once you start this book you can’t put it down. I really enjoyed it and I can’t wait for book two!


Five Stars.
