"Come Back to Me" by Jody Hedlund -- Book Review

About 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.

My Thoughts

"Come Back to Me" is a different genre of book than Jody Hedlund normally writes, but I fell into the story and was immersed in the story and was invested in what was happening in both timelines. I found the book to be well written and flowed well. There were life lessons sprinkled through the story. I liked William and how Marian brought out the best in him. There was a little of the same feel as the movie Kate and Leopold. As is usual for Jody Hedlund's books, she is a little higher on the "heat" level, but never goes too far, you are just very aware of their desire for each other. I look forward to reading the next book in the Waters of Time series.

Jody Hedlund. Web - CopyJody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).
When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.
