Never Leave Me by Jody Hedlund is a time-travel romance taking you back and forth between present day and the Medieval Ages. Ellen Creighton moves into Harrison Burlington’s large estate to live out the rest of her days during the last stages of her genetic disease. Harrison loves Ellen, but has never allowed himself to have a serious relationship with her due to his paralysis and age.
Harrison discovers two flasks of Holy Water and convinces Ellen to drink some after proving it healed his spinal cord injury. When she is cured too, they must navigate their feelings for eachother and figure out their future. When criminals try and get the Holy Water for themselves, Ellen and Harrison end up traveling back and forth between time to save eachother.
Although Ellen and Harrison were interesting characters, I had a hard time envisioning them together as a couple. Perhaps it was because of the push and pull of their relationship that I hoped would get deeper sooner.
This is the second book in the Waters of Time series. I suggest reading the first book, Come to Me, to fully grasp the characters and storyline.
I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
