Never Leave Me (The Waters of Time, #2) by Jody Hedlund

Never Leave Me (The Waters of Time, #2)

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.


Are you ready for a trip to the past? Author Jody Hedlund sweeps us along on another time-travel adventure that satisfies romance lovers and teases other readers with "What if?" Never Leave Me continues the saga of the search for the holy water, and it's the perfect follow-up for Come Back to Me, the first book in the Waters of Time series. Finding this holy water is the only cure for the genetic disease that Ellen Creighton suffers. She has accepted that she is going to die, but Harrison Burlington thinks otherwise, and he personifies true friendship as he cares for her physically and ministers to her emotionally. Harrison, who secretly loves her and can't imagine life without her! Harrison, who is paralyzed and destined to spend his life in a wheelchair, but willing to help Ellen any way that he can.

Never Leave Me has romance that will take your breath away, and a thrilling adventure that keeps you hanging on, as villains join the race to find the holy water. Readers are reunited with Ellen's sister Marian and her husband William, from book one, and I was very intrigued by Nicholas, who plays a big role in Ellen's visit to 1382! Can there be a third book in this series, and will Nicholas be the focus?

Hedlund has an amazing talent for suggesting intense romantic chemistry but never showing overly explicit details, and she also weaves thought-provoking faith messages into her plots. If you are looking for heartwarming romance and riveting adventure, you need to read Never Leave Me. You will not be disappointed!
