Publisher's Book Description

“When the darkness closes all around, 
Beauty is still there just waiting to be found. 


Dawson Huxham blames himself for his sister’s death . . . until he briefly crosses time and discovers she’s alive in the Middle Ages. Hoping to reconnect with her, he searches for the holy water that will help him visit the past for a longer duration. But he realizes he’s not the only one looking for the miraculous water. Terrorists are threatening him and watching his every move. 


As Dawson locates holy water from an unlikely source, he crosses fully into the past where he meets a beautiful noblewoman, Philippa Neville, who is desperately trying to escape her uncle’s plans for an arranged marriage. When danger closes in, Dawson agrees to wed her in an effort to thwart her uncle’s schemes. As forces in both the present and past conspire against the newlyweds, will they find a way to be together before the swiftly moving waters of time separate them forever?”

My Review

Wait for Me, by Jody Hedlund, is the fourth book in the amazing Waters of Time series. Medieval adventures abound in this time-crossing story filled with dangers in both the past and the present. A unique blend of history, intrigue, love, self-sacrifice, and plenty of surprises ensure that this novel is truly captivating. Not only is Wait for Me emotionally resonant and thoughtful, it is also descriptively immersive and well-written. From the first page to the last, it is a remarkable novel that is entertaining and touching. 

Once again, Ms. Hedlund has succeeded in crafting a story that is altogether creative and engaging. Memorable characters and settings in two time periods complement a storyline that moves effortlessly between events in the present and those occurring more than 700 years ago. The characters who anchor the story are very compelling. They are vulnerable, courageous, and honorable. Though they contend with enemies, fears, and threats, they continue to reflect compassion and integrity in their speech and actions. As they search for truth and cling to hope, their developing story becomes increasingly moving, surprising, and special.  

Like the other books in this series, this novel is thoroughly enjoyable. It is very engrossing and filled with important themes like forgiveness, restoration, and second chances. Clever and appealing, Wait for Me is a novel I recommend wholeheartedly.
