About the Book
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.

In My Opinion
I’m always excited and pleasantly surprised when the second book in a series is even better than the first (but it does set high expectations for the next book). I’m happy to say Never Leave Me by Jody Hedlund follows that pattern.
Harrison is such a likable character. I was rooting for him in book one and was thrilled to see him get some good things coming his way. And Ellen is such a sweet and caring soul (while a little naïve), you only want the best for her as well.
Hedlund does tend to toe the line when it comes to physical attraction (some readers may find the near intimacy too much for them and some of the situations, especially at the beginning of the book, questionable), but it’s the emotion and friendship between Harrison and Ellen that kept me involved in their story.
