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
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!
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!
