Never Leave Me Review


About the Book

 In the last stages of a genetic disease, Ellen Creighton has decided to live out her remaining days at the estate of her longtime friend Harrison Burlington. Harrison cares deeply for Ellen, but as a wheelchair-bound paraplegic, he's never allowed himself to get serious in a relationship. However, he's desperately trying to save her by finding the holy water that is believed to heal any disease.

When he locates two flasks, Ellen refuses to drink one of them because she believes the holy water killed her sister and father. In an effort to convince her to take it, Harrison ingests the contents first, and when Ellen witnesses the effects, she can no longer deny the power of the substance in the bottles. Dangerous criminals are also seeking the holy water, and Ellen soon learns they will go to any lengths to get the powerful drug--including sending her back into the past to find it for them.

Bestselling and award-winning author Jody Hedlund plunges you into the swiftly flowing river of history in a race against the clock in this breathtaking, emotional second Waters of Time story. (Goodreads)




My Thoughts

I loved the first book in this series and if you haven't read it you need to before picking up this one. The two are very much connected so it makes a big difference in understand everything that is happening in this second book. 

I was excited to delve more into Harrison's character and I so enjoyed all of the characters in this story. This novel alternates between present day and the Middle Ages though it focuses more in present day. I think that is partly why this story only gets four stars. I LOVE the time travel and the historical side of things so much more than present day. Both sides were well written I just wish we could have spent more time in the past. All that to say this is a fantastic series. I couldn't put it down and I am hoping Jody Hedlund writes more time travel stories. 

If you enjoy time travel and a splash of clean romance this is the book for you!

Four Stars.
