Stay with Me (Waters of Time, #3) by Jody Hedlund

Stay with Me (Waters of Time #3)

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?


Jody Hedlund excels in writing romance but she's outdone herself with this newest book in her Waters of Time series. Sybil begins a quest to find ancient holy water and finds herself drawn into an amazing time-travel adventure that takes her back to 1392! She's helped by a 14th-century man who touches her heart in a way that she's never known but how can she ever hope for more?

This may be a sweet and clean romance, but the chemistry is absolutely sizzling between Sybil and Nicholas. Their feelings, however, are so much deeper than just a physical attraction and their emotional connection is what we all hope to find. Sybil may not know where she belongs, but she definitely knows who she belongs with!

Stay With Me is a compelling time-travel adventure that alternates between medieval and present-day England, and the romance is to die for! Hedlund offers a stunning depiction of two people separated by time and place but united by their all-consuming love for each other. Who says that clean romance can't be breathtaking?

I received a complimentary copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Jody Hedlund is the best-selling author of over twenty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award. She lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy teens, and five spoiled cats.

When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.
