WAIT FOR ME by Jody Hedlund, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay

I have been enchanted with this series and want to read the next book as soon as it is available! The concept is unique for a time travel situation. The limits put upon the characters are interesting.

Ms. Hedlund has proven she can write in several different genres and she shines in each one. Her settings are sumptuous in 1300s Canterbury and she depicts the customs well. Dawson Huxam is a flawed hero but comes into his own and shows his worth. Philippa is a beauty in a time when she is being manipulated by her evil uncle. But Dawson reaches back in time to come to her rescue. The stories were tied together by the mysterious holy water and the quest to send it forward in time. There also those in the present who wish to use it for nefarious purposes. I love the way Ms. Hedlund ties it all together and leaves just enough unsolved to make us want to read the next book in the series.

Skillfully written time travel that leaves you wanting more, it contains faith journeys, romance, danger, bravery and an intriguing puzzle.
 *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not required to post a favorable review.all opinions are my own.*5 stars and a solid faith thread 

BackCover Blurb:
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?
