Sinossi

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Bentarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives with their parents, famed Etruscan scholars, among the romantic hills. In Book One of the River of Time series, Gabi and Lia are stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, boring, and dusty archeological site … until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.
           
And thus she comes to be rescued by the knight-prince Marcello Falassi, who takes her back to his father’s castle—a castle Gabi has seen in ruins in another life. Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting. But what do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

I loved every page of this book, based in Italy, beautifully written, with lots of excitement, so much so, it was hard to put it down. The period was well researched, the characters very real & the adventure highly conceivable. Ms Bergren is a skilled writer with excellent grammar. I highly recommend this book.

Di Zoe @ Blessed and Bewildered - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I am a bit older (quite a bit) then the intended audience for this series but I have to admit that I really loved it. I came across Waterfall when my 13-year-old daughter had a school Christmas gift exchange. The girl whose name she drew is a fan of the Harry Potter series. So when Christmas shopping at my local Christian bookstore I asked the owner for his recommendation of a book that a Harry Potter reader might love. His understanding was that Lisa Tawn Bergren specifically set out to write a series of books that were biblically based and would draw the interest of teenagers and their mothers as strongly as the Twilight series did.

Waterfall is a light, fun, clean, although quite a fantastical story. It is Christian, but moms if you were hopeful that this series would lead your daughter into a deeper relationship with Christ I'm afraid that it won't. Fortunately, though, it is a series that you can give to your daughter that will show true romance, advocate sex AFTER marriage, and provide them with a clean entertaining read that you won't mind previewing. Enjoy

5.0 su 5 stelle Lisa T. Bergren's first in this series appeals across the age span of readers--A simply GREAT read! 10 marzo 2014

You know you're blessed when you get a book for a penny, and it turns out to be exactly what you like to read. I never thought I would be "into" the time-travel genre, but why wouldn't I? !t's history, and historical fiction is my favorite kind of reading. Waterfall is the first of The River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren, and was really written for an older teen audience, but I enjoyed it thoroughly--and I'm someone's grandmother! Told from the perspective of a 17 year-old who discovers a time continuum portal while on the scene of an Italian burial mound excavation with her archeologist mother, Gabriella is thrown into medieval Italy in the 1300s amid a gruesome, battle-laden backdrop of political intrigue. Throw in a few handsome Italian aristocrats, a host of villains, a couple of castles, a little of the romanticism of the time--as well as the harsh realities--and you've got a GREAT book. This is a 100% clean read which leads readers of any age to not only appreciate a more faith-based era when reverence was the norm, but also to be thankful for medical advances and the opportunities that the precepts of Christianity has afforded women of our time. I definitely plan to continue reading this series.

5.0 su 5 stelle The adventure of a lifetime...and an era! Great, clean, adventurous read for teens 26 gennaio 2011

The book begins in the present day as two sisters wander, bored, around an archeological dig their mother is working on in Italy. Gabi, the eldest sister, is annoyed to be spending yet another summer at an Italian dig site, and is eager for a normal teenage experience. When she and her sister, Lia, discover a set of ancient handprints in an old tomb that are the exact dimensions of their own hands, however, the two are sucked into a time-warp adventure that is anything but normal.

Gabi and Lia are separated during the shocking jerk back through time, and Gabi emerges from the tomb into the middle of a fierce battle between two Italian houses, the Castellos Forelli and Paratore, in medieval Italy. When the Castello Forelli takes her under their protection, she not only meets the handsome--and spoken for--Marcello Forelli, she also becomes the main target of the dangerous Castello Paratore.

Gabi's shock at finding herself in another era must be pushed aside quickly in order to ensure her survival; and she soon finds herself giving medical advice to save a Lord's son, sword fighting, and actively participating in war schemes (all while wishing she had access to Wikipedia or Google to get some answers to her historical questions). When it is discovered that the cruel Lord Paratore is holding Lia captive, however, Gabi's somewhat good-natured romp through medieval Italy suddenly becomes a nightmare.

When I first picked up Waterfall, I was a bit skeptical. Unfortunately, a lot of Christian fiction for teens is--in my opinion--poorly written, too preachy, or heavily coated in sugar. I was dubious that Waterfall, a book that fell into my lap unexpectedly, would be any different.

Thankfully, however, Waterfall not only exceeded my expectations, it actually sucked me into the adventure to the point where I couldn't put it down. I was thrilled to discover realistic, three-dimensional characters in this story, and thoroughly enjoyed the tension of the romantic thread. Bergren takes the reader on an adventure that is not sparing in the harsh realities of the time, and yet the author skillfully keeps the story from becoming overtly graphic or inappropriate. I appreciated the characters' honest struggles throughout the novel, from the moral vs. survival issues of war and torture, to the yearning to experience life fully, and the deep uncertainty that so often plagues our faith. Bergren's work is honest without being overly preachy or despairing, and allows the reader to engage fully in a story that is both wonderfully exciting and thoroughly relatable.

Waterfall is an excellent read for teens and adults alike. I am eager for the rest of the series!

This is the first ever time travel novel series that I read and I loved it. There is something about time travel that has captured my heart ever since the very first in the genre that my hubby and I enjoyed on our first movie date! I think that balance of romance and adventure with the kick arse characters is what drew me to this series in the first place. I'm not one for typical historical stories, and definitely not one for gushy icky romance, but this series had enough of the adventure with the kick arse heroine that I couldn't help but read the whole series straight.

Gabi and Lia don't have the usual upbringing, their parents are archaeologists. And not your usual kind – they dig up artefacts in crazy out of the places in central Italy. It is at one of these dig sites that they find an ancient tome that leads them into a time past with no modern resources except their intelligence and cunning in a world, light years in the past.

Gabi finds herself alone in a castle run by a gorgeous prince whose enemy is holding her sister captive. Gabi decides that no one is going to come between her and her sister and makes an extravagant plan to save her family in this adventurous historical romance.

If you are a fan of alternative reality or time travel, then this is a great series to read. Adventure, kickarse, modern and beautiful women, in an era where women are expected to sew or run house holds, not rescue themselves – let alone their damsels in distress, Waterfall is a great start to a wonderful time-travel historical series that captures heart and soul in a fantastical story.

Loved it, so will you!

I started this about a week ago & just finished #4 today. Addicting! Although I wish more was said about knowing God on a personal level (it lightly touched on her referring to Him as "the Big Guy" and how that wasn't how God was thought of by the people of the other time period.... and she did start praying more, though just "Please help" and "Thank you" in a crisis), it was a great story -- wonderfully written, full of excitement, interesting characters. Makes me want to visit Italy! Great book & great series! Looking forward to starting Deluge (#5). So far, NONE in the series is lacking (I've been disappointed before by one being great, the next not so much). It's a fun book/series to read, though not if you're skirmish about descriptions of battles. Great balance between internal thoughts & events / action, serious suspense & lightheartedness.
