About the book:

Come Back to Me (Waters of Time Book #1) by [Jody Hedlund]

Title: Come Back to Me.

Author: Jody Hedlund

Release Date: June 1, 2021

Genre: Time Travel Romance

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.

Book Review:

Excellent characters and a fun story that throws the reader into an exciting adventure they won’t want to end. Jody Hedlund writes character emotions with a deft pen and never left me wondering how much each individual felt (some scenes were rather sensual though never explicit) or loved those around them. Marian and William might come from different centuries, but they were made for one another. I loved Marian’s fearlessness and Will’s protective nature. They butted heads on many topics which added an extra depth to the story while showing true character arc. I thought using the holy water as the element of time travel gave the story a unique twist. Definitely can’t wait for the next book in the series. I received a copy of this book from RevellReads. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
