A present-day research scientist and an English knight from the 14th century. Healing Holy Water and the Tree of Life. The Canterbury Cathedral. These are just a few of the intriguing elements in this new book by Jody Hedlund, and from the beginning I was enthralled with the story of Marian Creighton and Will Durham. It was very apparent, from their first unexpected meeting, that their relationship wouldn't be the norm. I enjoyed their amazing chemistry and their realization that they wanted their marriage of convenience to be something more. They needed to be together forever, but how could two people, centuries apart, expect to do so? Would Marian, or could Marian, give up twenty-first century conveniences to live in medieval times?
Come Back to Me has mystery and suspense, but there is also a Christian faith message mixed in with the scientific aspects of this amazing adventure. Jody Hedlund is one of my favorite authors but I was uncertain how she would manage a time-travel Christian fiction book. Well, let me tell you, she managed extremely well! Come Back to Me proved once again that she can write any genre, and I can't wait to see what is planned for the next book in the Waters of Time series.
I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. A favorable review was never required. These are my own thoughts.
