Never Leave Me by Jody Hedlund Book Review

Never Leave Me by author extraordinaire Jody Hedlund is Book Two in her Waters of Time Series. Book One is Come Back to Me. This is a Christian time slip, time travel series that is so unique that it had me enthralled. I adored both books.

Author Hedlund is beyond talented. Her skill and imagination is truly a gift. With mere words she weaves a story with amazing characters, brilliant ideas, and descriptions so vivid I felt like a fly on the wall. This book is not only well written but also well researched and organized, also.


This is the tale of Ellen Creighton. She suffers from a horrible genetic disease and is close to death. It is also the tale of her friend Harrison. He is paralyzed and has been in a wheelchair for years. Their only hope is obtaining some of the holy water that was discovered in Book 1. 

There is action, mystery, intrigue, adventure, inspiration, and romance in this phenomenal captivating tale. Venture to 1380’s England and back to modern day in this page turning wonder. I learned a lot of medieval details while reading this. There is a strong Christian message woven throughout the entire book. Even though I have finished it days ago, I still think about it.

I cannot recommend this high enough. Be sure to read Book 1 first because it is so interesting, too. Both books will have you running the gamut of emotions before you finish. You will be so invested in the characters and their stories. It receives a 5 out of 5 stars from me. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley but these are my honest words.
