Come Back to Me
by Jody Hedlund
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.
Well. This book is certainly different than others I’ve read by this author.
I found myself pleasantly surprised.
You see, this is a time travel novel…but it’s rather different than any I’ve read.
Marian’s dad is in a coma. With no logical explanation. Then, his apartment and his lab are ransacked, and it seems quite likely that someone is after his research…only what was his latest discovery?
As she looks into it, it seems possible that as his body is laying there in a coma, he is actually off exploring in another time.
Marian decides to investigate, and finds herself…in another time.
The way they time travel….well, fascinating. 🙂
Even though time travel is not my favorite genre (is it even a genre?!), I still really enjoyed this novel, and will definitely be reading its sequel.
