Oh my goodness, I almost don’t where to begin with this phenomenal book.  This time travel story is a definite must read.  I was so enthralled with this story, it was totally unputdownable, a read in one sitting book.  Present day and 1381 England, this Middle Ages tale had me hooked.

Marian Creighton is a scientist and she is trying to find a cure for her sister Ellen’s illness.  But when Marian’s father falls into a coma and Marian travels to England to find out why, she starts having visions of another time.  William Durham is a knight in 1381, and rescues Marian from being beaten and offers to protect her as his wife.  Marian agrees to it, but is determined to find the cure to bring her father out of his coma and for her sister Ellen’s genetic disease.  But Marian is falling for William Durham as he is a man of valor, and that storyline turns this time travel into a romantic love story.  Marian must decide, does she want to stay in the past with WiIlliam or does she want to return to present day?  

This story is so well written, and absorbs you so far into the pages that you forget you are in present time reading about the past.  The historical details, mystery and suspense of the story were so amazing, that it played out like a movie in my minds eye.  This time travel is escapism at its best.

I am usually not a fan of time travel, but this book is so well written that it could become a new favorite genre to read.  Thank you Jody Hedlund and Revell Publishing for this amazing read. I thoroughly enjoyed every flip of the page of this story.  I highly recommend this book.  Wow! Just Wow!

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.
