Award-winning author Jody Hedlund knows how to entice readers with her captivating historical novels. In 2021, Hedlund began the fantastical journey through time in Come Back to Me (June 1, 2021). Now Hedlund returns readers to fourteenth-century Canterbury in the next installment in the Waters of Time series, Never Leave Me.
Ellen Creighton’s outlook on life is bleak as she comes to grips with the final stages of an inherited genetic disease that also took her mother’s life. Her father, sister, and now her longtime friend Harrison Burlington have risked it all to find a cure—but often to their own detriment.
Harrison has always been in love with Ellen. But as a paraplegic, he’s never allowed himself to think about getting romantically involved with anyone. Refusing to give up hope, he desperately tries to save Ellen by locating two
flasks of holy water that he believes will heal her disease. But can he convince her to take it—especially when she believes the holy water led to her father and sister’s deaths? When dangerous criminals enter the equation, Ellen soon learns they will go to any length to get the powerful drug—including sending her back into the past to find it for them.
Never Leave Me is a breathtaking and emotional saga that will have readers racing through time to find a cure before the clock runs out.
