By: Lisa T. Bergren

Edition: Paperback
Pages: 369
Rating: 5/5 
Genre: Young Adult

Gabi and her sister Lia are bored out of their minds in italy while stuck, on yet, another archeological site with their mother. Exploring one of the hidden tunnels, Gabi and Lia come across something that has two handprints. Curious, they both place their hand into the prints and find themselves a few years back in time; the fourteenth-century to be exact. Gabi soon finds herself falling for someone who is 700 years older and feels a undeniable connection to him.

**Let me start off by saying that this is perhaps, the best book I have read in a very VERY long time. I tend to be a extremely critical person when it comes to books and when I don't like something, I'm not afraid to give my honest opinion about how I feel.**

Where do I even begin with this review? I haven't seen many reviews on this book on both youtube and blogspace, its almost as if this book is flying under the radar. You will not be disappointed with this book, it is absolutely amazing. Gabi is an extremely strong and mature character in this book but its not so much where she is not relatable. Her sister is only 15 but Lia also demonstrates how wise she is beyond her years. 

As a lover of the medieval era and pretty much anything to do with history this was exactly my type of book. However! If you are not into that type of novel do not worry! This book is AMAZING! Please don't let anything scare you from giving this a try. There are Christian elements to this book but its not overwhelming to the point where the artist is preaching to you. DO NOT WORRY!

The romance in this book? Perfection. Not too much where it was over the top, and just enough to leave you wanting more and more. 

Did I have any problems with this book? NO! A couple things might have bugged me but It wasn't a big deal that it took me out of the story. Please give this book a chance! I loved it! :)

Book cover: Really like the font used on the cover, and it has a medieval kind of look.

Characters: Liked that the book was in Gabi's point of view. Romantic interest was amazing, perfect "Knight in shining armor!"

Writing: Flowed really well, definitely a page turner.

Ending: Perfect.


  1. I am so glad you liked it :) (it was just the college comps not letting me comment...damn them!)

  2. Yay! Glad you discovered WATERFALL and decided to dive into the River of Time. :-)
