Sybil Huxham and Sir Nicholas Worth, who readers were introduced to in previous books of the series, take center stage in Stay with Me. There were brief mentions of Marian, Ellen, and Harrison, (who were leading characters in the previous books), although I wish they had made actual cameo appearances in the novel. When book four releases next year, I am hopeful that they will play a more prominent role in the conclusion of this amazing series. This book kept me thoroughly invested in the storyline, and I did not want to put it down.

Sacrificing and dying to oneself is costly.
But doing so brings new purpose and joy.
As a private investigator, Sybil Huxham has seen her fair share of strange occurrences. But nothing in her career has been more perplexing than the miracles she’s witnessed as a result of people drinking ancient holy water. When she discovers more of the rare holy water, she experiences strange overlaps with a nobleman in the Middle Ages who is languishing in a dungeon, accused of treason and condemned to die. To save his life, she finally crosses to the past completely.Nicholas Worth has never met a woman quite like Sybil, and as the two run for their lives into the Weald, they find refuge among a community of outlaws. With both their reputations on the line, they have little choice but to marry. As they get to know each other, an undeniable attraction develops. But danger and disease chase after them, drawing ever closer. Will they be able to escape the threats? And will Sybil choose to stay with Nicholas in the past, or will she be ripped apart from him forever?
