Come Back to Me by Jody Hedlund is a masterpiece. If you enjoy time travel stories, history, and romance, this is the book for you.
From the back of 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.
The author writes in such detail that it was easy to picture what was happening and I felt like I was right there with the characters. I read this in two sittings because I couldn’t put it down and I’m still reflecting on the story and the questioned it posed. I love stories that involve time travel and this was such a unique take on the concept. I also love the historical elements she skillfully weaved into the story.
There’s going to be at least one more book in this series and I cannot wait to read it.
