What is this book about?
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?
Time travel is not a topic often done in Christian fiction so I wasn’t sure what to expect and how I would feel about it when I picked up this story. To my delight, I was pulled right into the story and could not put it down until I found out what happens with Marian.
The romance was, dare I say, heated and swoony. It was also deep as it caused Marian to reflect on what her she was willing to do for the sake of love. What sacrifices was she willing to make? The answer was not that simple and I really felt her anguish while she struggled with her options.
The time travel aspect was very much woven into the story as the reader learns how it works right along with Marian. It was very well done.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
This was a page turner from start to finish.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Nothing. I really enjoyed it.
Would I recommend this book to others? Definitely. It is not what one expects from a romance but it checks all the boxes for drawing the reader in and giving a satisfying love story. This is the first book in the series.
