Coming Soon: Never Leave Me by Jody Hedlund
Here it is! The third January 4th release! Never Leave Me is the second book in the Waters of Time series, which is Jody Hedlund's first time-travel series and fourth medieval series. I've yet to write my review of the first book, Come Back to Me, but suffice it to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it and am super excited to start reading Never Leave Me!
I absolutely loved the way Hedlund chose to depict time travel and the method she used to do it. It was the perfect blend of fantasy, science, and Christian mythology that was simply superb! Most time travel novels are either too fantastical or too scientific until the point that you can't grasp how it works, but Hedlund's is simple while still being complex enough to, you know, not be real - more speculative than anything else.
Anyway, y'all know what I mean, don't you?
Good. Then let's move on to learning about this book (and squealing over that gorgeous cover)!
About the Book
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.
Bestselling and award-winning author Jody Hedlund plunges you into the swiftly flowing river of history in a race against the clock in this breathtaking, emotional second Waters of Time story.
