This first one was my favorite. It’s book 1 in the series and I liked it so well that I’m now reading and loving book 2. Book 2 is a continuation of their story although Marian’s sister Ellen is the main character this time. I’m halfway through and the sisters are currently together in a castle back in 1382.
We don’t know yet whether Ellen will be left there too or will be drawn back to present day. We don’t know if the crooked scientist forcing her to travel to an earlier time to find more of the healing water will be able to harm Ellen and her beloved friend if she fails or if he will be caught and charged with his crimes. I know what I expect to happen but so far nothing as gone as expected. Which is awesome.
Here they are.
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?
In the last stages of a genetic disease, Ellen Creighton has decided to live out her remaining days at the estate of her longtime friend Harrison Burlington. Harrison cares deeply for Ellen, but as a wheelchair-bound paraplegic, he’s never allowed himself to get serious in a relationship. However, he’s desperately trying to save her by finding the holy water that is believed to heal any disease.
When he locates two flasks, Ellen refuses to drink one of them because she believes the holy water killed her sister and father. In an effort to convince her to take it, Harrison ingests the contents first, and when Ellen witnesses the effects, she can no longer deny the power of the substance in the bottles. Dangerous criminals are also seeking the holy water, and Ellen soon learns they will go to any lengths to get the powerful drug–including sending her back into the past to find it for them.
And now for the rest.
It has been a pleasant run on good books this week.
Now back to see what will happen next in my story.
Happy Reading y’all.
